Album 365: Day 6 - The Joy Formidable - The Big Roar

The Joy Formidable
The Big Roar

Favorite tracks: I Don't Want To See You Like This, Whirring, Chapter 2
Sleeper tracks: Buoy, The Greatest Light Is the Greatest Shade

I came across this band via a Facebook post.  The person linked a video and I think they were going to go see them in town.  Tonight was the first time I played the album all the way through.

I came up with a new genre of music.  I call it 'Cell phone commercial rock'.  You know, the kind of music you'd hear in a cell phone commercial.  This record would fit into that genre.  I will admit that it was hard to get into this album.  I did really like the song 'Whirring'. ' Chapter 2' was pretty decent too.  There were some good riffs and despite what some people might tell you, I DO appreciate chick singers besides Ann Wilson.  There's just something about this one that didn't grab me.  I might be wrong and I can accept that.
