Review Summary: Not as bad as you may think...

3 of 3 thought this review was well written

Every now and then in ever corner of music, there seems to be a trend created, that eventually overwhelms an entire genre. Metalcore was once a term used to describe bands such as Killswitch Engage or Trivium, but recently a trend has developed for pop-infused, breakdown-heavy metalcore with a high emphasis on keyboards and synthesizers. Catapulted into the spotlight by Attack Attack!, it has become an oddity; genuinely adored by the fans while, commonly, not being that good. There has been so many copies of this autotune-filled style, it was starting to get a bit unbearable. One Morning Left join the trend but the results aren't as painful as you may expect.

Let's get one thing straight before I even dig deep into the music - 'Bree-Teenz' is not an album that should be taken seriously. All I need to say is one of the songs is called 'This Song Has a Massive Autotune Chorus' to get across how much of an intentional joke this album is. It's almost like a self-parody. Just don't listen to this band looking for something to be taken seriously. Once you've done that, you'll realise the most important thing about 'The Bree-Teenz': it's a whole lot of fun.

The synths are upbeat and cheery and the heavier sections are bound to make to head-bang, this album really is a good amount of fun. The lead single off the album '!liaF cipE' (that's "Epic Fail!" spelled backwards), features a cool dance tune after a breakdown, which continues with heavy guitars and deep screams which really aren't all that bad.

'This Song Has a Massive Autotune Chorus' is very self-aware as, despite the vocals being layered in the aforementioned autotune, it's undeniably catchy. 'Reetu Inda House' continues what seems to be a fit of self-parodying with over-the-top "pig squeals", or "Bree's" (the noise from which the album's cover and name derives'). Whether it's intentional or not, this album will draw out a few laughs, but for genuinely good reasons, as it's not laughably bad, unlike other bands in this genre. The guitars display much more talent than the others; there's more than mindless chugging in here.

It's important that you do not listen to 'The Bree-Teenz' expecting a metalcore masterpiece. It's far from that. It is, however, far from being as plain bad as fellow members of this genre, quite ironically considering they appear to be parodying the genre itself. One Morning Left aren't to be taken too seriously, and when you don't there's a giant CD filled with metalcore-dance fun right here.

Not a bad review, there's a typo in the first sentence though. Band sounds pretty horrid especially with those recs.

Their previous EP is fucking awesome. I love this also, because I find them to be one of the funniest groups of this kind. I can't wait to see their gig at Tuska 2012, mainly because everyone else hates them there and they're going to annoy the fuck out of metalheads, they will come up with something awesome.

Reetu inda House is the best song, but the only mediocre songs here are 3 and 10. Everything else is just so much fun.

Reetu has awesome vocals! And I agree with number 10, but I liked Hermione's Panties.. But my favorite is IWrestledWithMyHairOnce.. Not just because of the awesome name, but it's quite an awesome tune
