Third album from L.A based rockers The Exies sees the band steering away from the multi-layered intellect of ‘Inertia’ and getting back to a more solid riff based platform. Producer Nick Raskuliecz (Foo Fighters) has been drafted in to achieve the desired effect. Certainly this is much more of a rock album than its predecessor, yet it retains the hooks that defined the 2003 release. Opener ‘Slow Drain’ swaggers into corporate grunge territory, whilst the power chords of ‘Ugly’ combined with Scott Stevens growling vocal chords show an undeniable fondness for Nirvana. ‘My Opinion’ hammers along at a breakneck speed with a great hook and it’s track 10 before there’s any respite with the power ballad ‘Tired of You’; proof-if any was needed-that this is as full on testosterone fuelled modern rock album as you are likely to hear
