I try to look past that it's a female singer, and try to give
it a fair chance. I have to, right? Ok. That's cool. Wait, this
isn't Gravity Kills with a new lead singer? Ok. That's
cool too. Calm down, I'm not hating on Gravity Kills, I did
like them a great deal
However, I:Scintilla's new
release The Approach did first remind me of the late
1990's early 2000's predecessors of what I like to call "whine
rock." Not too shabby of a start though, the first track
"Intro" is a good lead in to their hard hitting grinding
"Imitation," (although, an imitation of someone else's
. OK, I'll stop
Although some of the tracks are very well put together, I can
only stand so much of the lyrics. The music is very driven,
and needs to stand out more, I should say. Brittany Bindrim's
vocals are very strong and should have some focus, but on most
of these tracks, it IS the focus. It almost completely covers
up the efforts of her supporting band mates.
But then again, like I said, I liked the band whom they resemble,
and these guys (and gal) deserve big recognition for their work.
They really pull off a good strong sense of style and keep up
the pace through out the entire CD. Their last track "The
Bells," is a true taste of their whole styling all in one
I should hope to see more of this in any of their
upcoming releases; more music, more melody, and not so much
focus on just one band mate!
Over all a good piece to listen too, but all silver needs some
polish from time to time!
