Juniper Sky - dont.forget

Reviewed by: gnp8472 (04/10/07)
Juniper Sky - dont.forget
Label: Textbook Music
Release: 5/6/06

Who?

A New York quintet who, after spending considerable amounts of time in the NY scene with bands like The Last Year, After the Bath, and Locked in a Vacancy, combined to create their debut under the moniker Juniper Sky. With solid reviews popping up, a little over 35,000 plays on their MySpace page, as well as featured tracks on portions of last seasons "Real World", Juniper seem to be a up-and-coming buzz band in the NY rock scene.

How Is It?

After the first five track of dont.forget, you might be tempted to say goodbye to Juniper because their opening tracks are little more than heavy rock attempts at Deftone's tracks with a vocalist who is a much weaker version of Geoff Rickly. However, don't give up on them quite yet. The next three tracks ("The Flaw In Design," "Far Away," and "All For You") strengthen the Deftones comparisons with stronger programming. The album closes with a typical heavy rock move: the last-song soft song. "Tears" actually is pretty good compared to some of the other last songs like it, but it does little to rise above everyone else. But if you're looking for a semi-consistent local Deftones-inspired band, you might have found something in Juniper Sky.
