DNA - Passenger

Reviewed by: npmshah (10/31/09)
DNAPassenger
Record Label: Unsigned
Release Date: May 12, 2009

Pop-punk is a genre that is, surprisingly, diverse. From the crunchiness of A Day To Remember to the mall-pop of Hey Monday, many artists fall under this radar. DNA is one of these acts, and lean towards the poppier side. Even though they have played with everyone from Say Anything to Brokencyde, on Passenger, DNA show that they are nothing special.

Thoughout the album’s ten tracks, the band showcases a knack for writing guitar-oriented pop. The song “Almost Perfect,” in particular truly shines. With an amazing twinkling piano intro that complements the soaring vocals, this song defines everything that DNA could be. Unfortunately, most of the album follows the same formula: cheesy lyrics and harmonies backed by corny pop music.

There is not much to be said about DNA. The band shows some potential, but sticks to the same boring formula for too many songs. I will look forward to future output from DNA, only to keep the hope alive that they will stray from the generic style of music they display on this disc.
