Don't Kill The Magic

Strange Desire

Isolate and Medicate

There are so many layers to this, so many influences wrapped up into these 12 tracks that it’s almost hard to believe that these guys started out as a nu-metal group. This album is one of the best albums to come out this year; it’s deep, it’s versatile, and most of all it’s just really good. The one album that I thought of when I heard this for the first time was Silverchair’s “Neon Ballroom”, like “Neon Ballroom” this album is still harder rock, but it showcases so many different tactics in it- (i.e. a children’s choir, some string arrangements, whisper/voice use, screaming, etc .) The other thing that TFK really has going for it on this release is Trevor McNevan’s vocal work. With any good release the vocals don’t just have to be sang well, but they have to be sang with a lot of passion and conviction. McNevan has pulled that off here, and it’s not just a song here and a song there, back to front McNevan’s vocals shine. Every song on this album is good, but some immediate favorites include “What Do We Know?” and “Favorite Disease” and “The Safest Place.” There’s really not much to say with this, just that it’s 12 solid tracks that aren’t just written well, they’re recorded well too. It’s not a perfect release; It just misses out on that, but it’s the fall’s deepest album to come out so far. It will be interesting to see what happens from here on out for TFK- they’ve done their job and put out a great album, now it’s just up their label to bring this music to everyone’s attention. I highly recommend this to any fan of rock music- check this out.
