Connect [Explicit Version] (Audio CD)

Customer Review

Nine days after publication, I received the latest concoction of three Australians, made up of the singer Shimon Moore, bassist Emma Anzai and drummer Mark Goodwin.
After increased awareness again significantly with the last album, TRI-POLAR, it is the third and perhaps most difficult album to acknowledge said awareness of sustainable or of course to increase at best.

On SP's first album Dressed Up as Life, which is the first on a major label, the route was already foreseeable. Namely to combine some very punky and equipped with a touch of heaviness rock songs with ballade Keren, ie quieter songs in a balanced ratio (See. "Cancer" and "All the Same"). Texts on mainly youthful themes like "The world is evil and no one understands me" and heartbreak, it designed always a little more difficult that the tape comes out also about the status of an "Emo Band for Kids". This chosen path was sophisticated yet on TRI-POLAR again and deepened, which meant that you no longer only scratched the mainstream, but also makes the same piecemeal used by this. In my eyes, no negative aspect, because it was so far still unmistakably SP. Just as it now looks to CONNECT in 2013?

First granted SP us with the first single "There's No Going Back" a little taste. A catchy chorus and a message, which is typically not very ornate tries to reach the listener. This is confirmed in advance the proven image. The sound, the lyrics, the audience.
The ratio of real rock songs to quieter pieces is this time a fair 6:. 6

At the beginning of the same consecutive four of rocking pieces. The first makes "The To Save You", which reinforced reminds me of "I Should've Known Better". Followed by the famous "There's No Going Back", which creates the day just like Song No. 9 "Run", a representative of the quieter Silberling, lyrically a certain "Maybe" -Verschnitt. Nothing, but I really like. The songs 3 and 4, "Walking Away" and "Gunfight" let it rip significantly more, without letting this be without the catchy suitability. Super start date!

Then follow, probably because of the balance, four gebremstere songs. The beginning makes this time Track 5 "Poison", my secret favorite. A relatively simple melody, a relatively simple text, but a great effect on me. He has me first impressed because of its catchy new character. Then you continue with the Semi-ballad "Where Did The Time Go", where the title says pretty much everything about the statement intentions of the song. "Telling Lies" and the namesake of the album "Connect" let it rise slightly campfire feeling with acoustic guitar and backing vocals of Emma Anzai (which in my opinion much too rare in the course of the album). Very nice!
"The Trick The Devil Did" Track 10 and again a short but great rock song, again makes clear why this band is great fun: the pure joy of music! But you can hear of the band in every other track that they have a minimum as well always have fun, writing songs, and especially to perform what I ever could fortunately experienced live!

With "Healing Now" and "Under A Very Black Sky" album is completed by two highlights. "Healing Now" offers an increase that takes place in the course of the song (again with Emma's backing vocals. "Under A Very Black Sky" on the other hand is a little exotic. This can not be pushed directly into a drawer or with previous SP Compare songs. Especially since this is the first song in which Emma sings completely alone. Well done!

So I like the album overall pretty good, and I one, two more rockier, ie rotzigere songs would have liked, as well as more vocal inserts of Emma. Even so, the album makes again fun to hear. Although for some the unique continuation of tri-polar will not like. I already!

Here again, the tracklist of the normal version:

* "Die to Save You"
* "There's No Going Back"
* "Walking Away"
* "Gunfight"
* "Poison"
* "Where Did the Time Go"
* "Telling Lies"
* "Connect"
* "Run"
* "The trick the Devil Did"
* "Healing Now"
* "Under A Very Black Sky"
