First Impressions: Motion City Soundtrack - Go
First Impressions: Motion City Soundtrack - Go
04/30/12 at 04:17 PM by Jason Tate
The new Motion City Soundtrack album finds the band re-envisioning their sound. Justin's vocals and lyrics continue to power the band's quirky music; however, I'd venture that this album sounds like a more stripped down version of the band's Even If It Kills Me. It's got a similar pop-sensibility about it ... less in your face rock songs ... but it comes at this in a different way. Wheras EIIKM was full of gloss and layered goodness -- this one is more raw. Very much a pop album, but I'd say the core of what pop is ... almost in a similar way as Relient K's latest album.

What I'm left thinking is that I need to spend some more time with this one - it's got "grower" written all over it. It's got "you're going to love this by the 10th time you play it" buried in every song.
