Gratitude brings the emo-influenced rock sound to the major label spotlight with their Atlantic Records debut. While it’s clear that Gratitude is inspired by today’s big name emo-rockers, take the Jimmy Eat World-esque single “Drive Away” for example, what really makes Gratitude impressive is their diversity, mixing the modern emo sound with melodic undertones, creating a refreshing new approach to what’s quickly becoming a mainstream sound. Just take a listen to tracks like “All In a Row”, “Sadie” and the most impressive “Someone To Love”. On these tracks Gratitude really lets their true range show. This album isn’t without its rock tracks though, aside from the single, “This Is The Part” and “Last” both display the vocal intensity of lead singer Jonah Matranga, and the stellar guitar work of Mark Weinberg. All in all, this is a very diverse and surprisingly melodic sounding release for this young band.
