Personally, I don't hear the Balance & Composure comparisons all that much. I definitely agree that there's an influence of B&C int the style of music, but not much else, it's much more subtle than I think you mentioned in your review, fans of that band will 100% be into this, I just don't think they should be lumped in as an imitator, they have their own sound imo.
Listening to their first EP and then this one, they're miles apart. The production on this is killer and you can hear how much progression has been made from their previous release. This album slays, more people need to know about them and they need to tour soon, I bet they're awesome live.
I definitely wouldn't lump them in as an imitator...I just think the influence is fairly apparent, as with Brand New's (especially on "Squander"). They certainly have their own sound, but I think it still has a little progress to make...doesn't make it bad. Everybody's gotta take steps to get to where they want to be.
