Deepfield - Archetypes And Repetition
Let me preface this review with, I respect EVERY artist in EVERY GENRE for their creativity. But when I come across CD's like Deepfield's 2007 release Archetypes and Repetition, I'm left wondering if there's any hope for taste and originality.Â Are they just trying to fulfill their album title, or maybe music is stuck recycling itself and artists like Deepfield are just a biproduct of that unfortunate standing.
Ordinarily, I'm a fairly cheese ball guy and can be sucked in with a good rhythm or scratchy voice. Not here, this CD is the epitome of disappointing heavy rock.Â Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of rhythms and catchy melodies here.Â With the help of producers Skidd Mills and Paul Ebersol (Three Doors Down, Saliva and Third Day), Deepfield has created a fine album for those who enjoy background rock, or that artist that gets played before your favorite concert that you'll never hear again.
What else is wrong aside from the generic tempo rock here? How bout a cover of En Vogue's "Don't Let Go". Truly, they didn't do a bad job, but I think the fact that they covered En Vogue says all you need to know. Though these guys may wind up selling 100,000 records one day, I'm tossing this record to the nearest friend with plastic taste and running far, far away.Yeap, one thing is for sure, this album lives up to its title.
