Usually I dig everything that comes out on Sinnbus but somehow Beach wonít ignite for meÖ
Iíve listed to ďplay it to deathĒ many times by day and by night, by sun and by rain but I donít find no access to the mood it carries. It is melancholy and sometimes sad in an aggressive way. Feelings that I know very well. However they donít evoke them in me. The communication is disturbed. It canít be the sound. The record is recorded very well and sounds really good. Especially the bass sounds great. I guess I donít get along too well with the vocals. They remind me of Eddie Vedder and I donít like Pearl Jam very much. Now that I wrote this I think that the music reminds me on Pearl Jam as well sometimes. It does also remind me of Menfolk and something else that I canít put my finger on. It feels very post-grunge alternative rock.
I donít say this record is bad. I just donít like it very much. The artwork is nice but there are no lyrics. Maybe knowing the lyrics would help getting deeper into the music. If you like intelligent alternative rock from the 90s then check it out.
