Amber Pacific - Truth In Sincerity
Here I sit again...even though I told my editor and supplier, NOT to send me the new Amber Pacific. Contrary to what you all may believe I don't care to waste my time ripping bands apart. Truth is, I spent far too much time ripping apart these guys on their first major label release. Though the aforementioned editor actually reviewed their debut The Possibility and the Promise, and gave 'em much more credit then I did on my review at another site, he sent it to me anyways. That just goes to show ya how much we at M.E. stack review ratings *laughs*. Truth is I want so bad to give these guys a great review.
Just the name itself has power and energy, but I'm afraid ladies and gentlemen, once again the name is overbearingly better than the overall talent and sound. Whiny Emo has just never been my overall sound. Sure, I get into Armor For Sleep, and Juliana Theory...But after a certain style of nose pinch, it doesnt matter how sick the instrumentals chords are, the vocals stand in the way. Just ask my brother, and Cartel. Perfect comparison if you're reading Kevin.
For the most part all the song have a sped up rhythm, and an equally atrocious bellowing of vocals. I won't even go anywhere near the lyricism,quite honestly I couldn't CARE LESS in this tone. So, let's break the record skipping and get to the good stuff right? Gotta be a reason I gave it a star and a half, right? The dramatic intro of Rule #76 isn't bad. With the exception of some rad riffs, I got nothing folks. This album is summed up best by the name of its releasing label, HOPELESS....someone feel like rebutting?
