|4.0 excellent||Adam Downer EMERITUS | May 6th 09|
For all intents and purposes, Flowers and Fireworks is the type of record sputnik should eat up. It's magnificent entry into skramz, longer than the average record, but just as consistent and solid. On Flowers and Fireworks, Spires are exciting, methodical, and mesmerizing all at once. Sure, a general homogeneity hangs over the record, but if that is the recordís most egregious flaw, then Flowers and Fireworks must be heralded as a success, for it takes a band in a stagnant genre offering something mostly unoriginal, and yet on almost every level, it works. Hereís to hoping Spires stick around, because if thereís one thing emo doesnít need, itís another promising act calling it quits after their first record.
|3.0 good||John weathered old reviewer Hanson EMERITUS | April 22nd 09|
Skramz isis. This would be a lot better if it wasn't so contrived and long, but I mean for what it is it is pretty great. If you are looking for slow music to headbang too, Spires are a pretty solid choice.
|4.0 excellent||Sobhi Youssef EMERITUS | April 22nd 09|
Kind of similar to the Mesa Verde record from last year, but heavier. John Hanson says this is skramz isis. this will definitely be on my year end top 10.
