Review Summary: If You Don't have Anything Nice To Say deffinetly deserves to be given a listen but be warned: a lot of listeners may not like it if they do not like electronics and screams. Overall, this is probably the best album by The Bunny The Bear so far.2 of 5 thought this review was well written
This is The Bunny The Bear's first album while signed to Victory, and their follow up to their Self Titled EP. This band's music is very diverse, and takes a lot of getting used to, so The Bunny The Bear is not for most listeners. If you take the time to listen to this band, you may find that their songs are full of emotion, catchy choruses, and great vocals, both clean and screams.
1. Prelude to Pregnancy:
The screams in this track blend very well with the music, as well as the electronic beats that are going on.
Very good vocal range on this track. The Bear (Chris Hutka) hits notes that will have you amazed, and The Bunny (Matt Tybor) is belting out screams that all blend together very well with the electronic.
3. Ocean Floor:
This song has one of the catchiest choruses The Bunny The Bear has ever written. It Starts of with piano, and builds up to a heavy chorus filled with screams, clean vocals, and electronics. Lyrics are also very meaningful, "You know I'm right here, waiting for you to givve my life some reason, to bring a breakthrough." You also get to hear The Bear hit some more high notes, which he is very great at doing.
4. C'est Pas Si Loin:
This track is a lot less heavy than the others, and The Bear does most of the vocals on it, with The Bunny doing the occasional scream. This track is about trying to win a girl back, and the lyrics are also very meaningful. The track starts of soft and quickly builds up to verses with heavy toned guitars.
5. It's a Long Way From the Esophagus to the Ovaries:
This track is heavily electronic oriented. It is about what Matt caught his girlfriend doing with another man. Lyrics to the chorus are: "Swallow his seed, I know you want to sing me to sleep, now come on lovely this can't go on anymore." As usual, the screams and vocals on this track are done well.
6. Lust Touch Seed:
This track starts off with a drums and a few electronics, and then build up to a heavy chorus. Song is pretty catchy, but not a favorite out of the album.
This song is the softest one on this album. This track gives shivers down your spine with hauntingly beautiful vocals by The Bunny and The Bear. There is a lot of piano going on in this track, which adds to its beauty.
8. Rough Eyes:
This is another catchy song. Not as heavy as the others, but that doesn't make it any less great. Lyrics seem to be about one night stands.
9. Sympathy For the Queen of Lies:
This song follows the trend of the last two songs, being not quite as heavy. Chorus is very catchy, but the rest of the song is a little boring at times.
This song breaks the trend of the last two songs, as it is another heavy track. The chorus is very catchy and the verses have a lot of low growls by The Bunny.
A great way to end the album. The bear continues to impress you with his high vocals, and The Bunny does the same with his screams. This is the longest track on the album, and every second of it is great.
