Essence of Thoughts's electro-rock Attempt to Fail is riddled with teenage angst, relationships points and break-ups. The album by no means strays removed from these points for lengthy and will get tedious quick. Nice in bits and items with a strong sound all through; This can be a temper primarily based album particularly good for these affected by a traumatic current break up and needing an excellent old style vent. With a powerful rooting in pop rock with a slight synth bent these tracks may very well be used to interrupt up extra hardcore play lists or infuse a little bit of variety inside any music weight loss program.
Attempt And Fail is split into a quick first half and a slower mellower second half. Within the second half typically sounds whiny and does have have the identical punch, perspective or catchiness of the primary half, coming throughout as underpowered and tacked on.
The catchy pop rock guitar riffs and synthesizers awaken a kind of perverse vicarious nostalgia for an emotionally charged and turbulent teenage interval I by no means actually had. It appears a kind of proper of passage to have intense and traumatic relationships stuffed with stupidity, innuendo and pop rock – one thing I by no means actually had for higher or worse.
One other shortcoming of Attempt to Fail is the lead singer's very samey vocals all through the album, if the lyrics don't get to you first it will likely be the vocals that in the end make for a tedious album expertise. In case you are the kind of one that prefers to take heed to customized play lists as a substitute of albums, you a lot by no means have this difficulty however after forcing to listen to the entire album by means of a few instances I fairly wished to tear my ears off. It isn't simply the vocals both additionally it is the association of devices and inexorably constant fashion.
Attempt And Fail has its good and unhealthy nevertheless it shouldn't displease followers of Essence of Thoughts's Watch Out EP and will certainly poach followers of comparable music from the mainstream.
