The Take Off and Landing of Everything

Breathe Carolina, the other Denver duo making waves on the billboard charts returns with another record, this one their first one for Fearless. This band is a lot like Idiot Pilot, but the melodies arenít as prevalent and the screaming is up. Way up. In Breathe Carolinaís instance thatís not necessarily a bad thing. Iím not going to lie, Iím not a long time fan of these guys but seeing the noise they were making this year I had to check out their previous work along with their current work, and itís gotten better. I will say that. With their first record, the band was a little bit too much crunk core for me... now theyíve changed slightly. Yes they still are crunk core, but things have gotten better where you can compare what they do to some legitimate rock music. There are guitars, there are actual lyrics, there are key components to music here and in spots it works. Not all spots but quite a few. Breathe Carolina is definitely an acquired tasteÖ just depends how long you want to take to acquire it. Not bad, Iíve heard worseÖ but not amazing.
