Against the Season

A New Beginning

Against the Season = Corporate Radio Station Favorites

I had a very hard time getting through this CD. I’m sure there are plenty of people out there waiting to hear female vocals delayed over generic “rock” guitar riffs, especially if they are played on the radio every half hour. I happen to enjoy hearing music that takes a step away from the 20 other bands repeated through a lazy DJ’s playlist. If they were to mix in something outside of distortion and bass, I might be able to get through the CD without a need for a music break (yes, this is similar to a smoke break). Against the Season is generically talented, and ready for a “trendy music kid” to be brainwashed into liking them.
