Better Than Ezra

Deepfield is a hard band to figure out. At one point their soaring guitars and cliché vocals sound like a watered down version of Hinder, while at other times they harness that energy and create a raw musical style that should force fans to stand up and take notice. The single, “Get It” falls in the category of the latter, with a strong chorus and tight musicianship, this track has the ingredients to be a top ten hit. Another exceptional song on the album, but of a different style, is the track “Fall Apart,” with its soaring vocals and heartfelt lyrics will remind fans of band like Closure or Fuel. Outside of these tracks, the album just never really finds an identity. Tracks like “Into the Flood” will draw comparisons to Trust Company, while the very next track “Your Forever,” sound like Muse or Ours. And the En Vogue cover that closes the album just leaves everyone scratching their heads. While it’s nice to see a band with the diversity to draw comparisons to a number of musical styles, albums like this make fans wonder if the band’s intent was to appeal to everyone rather than create something really unique.
