The Flesh World : "the Wild Animals in my Life"
There songs are subtle.Almost to the point of being shoe-gazey at times. Sometimes to the point they breeze by and I zone out and have to go back and listen to it again. So it doesn't grab you by the collar and demand you listen.On "Pool Side Boys" they guitarist begins to experiment more and even busts out a feed back filled solo or sorts. They use a lot of restraint and don't descend into punk rock until one of the final three songs. When they do they sounds like every other band that does this sort of thing. They continue to bang it out like this on "Your Love Is Like a House" that is a better use of punk as they still retain the other sounds from earlier in the album, but they just step on the gas with them.They stick to their guns with the punk thing and drag it out into the closing song. I think iam being generous to round this up to an 8, but they get points for being original and at least taking for odd places. The punk stuff I am still unsure about as most other bands are going more of that route they are bringing a little more fuzzed out sound to it though here. This is being released on Iron Lung Records.
