First Impressions of "Paradigm Shift"
Picked it up yesterday (release) and just listened to it today
Out of all of their albums, this was the first to actually disappoint me. The main reason is that it's very mainstream generic like every other "new rock" group that have popped up in the last ten years. Ray's drumming is entirely of that kind with no groove anywhere and Jon makes every chorus that singy "hnnngg" that they all do. Also every song starts off well enough in the verse but all go into the generic energetic chorus as described above.
I'll need several listens to ingest everything and make a proper final judgement
Also, I guess in a couple weeks I'll have my "equipment" back to make my review of all their albums. Peace, yo
