Gene - the rater of either 3.0 or 4.0,

The Hold Steady The Price Of Progress
Craig Finn's brilliant lyricism are amplified by the band's swagger throwback rock sound, although sometimes I feel like the fuzzy mix drowns out some of the emotion and the humour.
The Human League Dare!
Set aside the 80s undeniable camp, overarchingly this is a meticulously crafted pop album with explosive moments, as well as quieter breathers all constructed quite cleverly. I get why the album has such a following.
Chained to the Bottom of the Ocean Obsession Destruction
I am absolutely certain this did not need to be an hour long. I am absolutely rock solid on the fact that all of the 7+ minute tracks have a lot of stuff to trim. Yet the riffs are brutal, the atmosphere is on point, the harmonies and the occasional melodies work well. But man ya'll need to learn some pacing and trimming, seriously.
Grails Anches En Maat
Brutus (BE) Unison Life
'Unison Life' seems like an amalgam of the band's two previous records: the carefully crafted alchemy of structures from 'Nest' and the unadulterated energetic explosion of 'Burst' coalesce into something even more anthemic, even more melodic, even more skillful in terms of arrangement and vocal delivery.
Brutus (BE) Nest
It seems Brutus understood that they cannot catch the lightning in a bottle twice, for on their sophomore they have employed a more varied approach, played around with interludes, tried their knack at frontally melodic song-writing, and new vocal lanes. All to great success, proving them a force to be reckoned with, updating and revitalising their sound with every new step.
Brutus (BE) Burst
A "burst", indeed. Brutus have created quite the momentum for themselves with his inexplicably bombastic debut, quite unmatched in reach and presentation by many of their contemporaries. What seems like a mere - there is no better word for it - burst of energy and intuitional talent, is actually a carefully crafted, mathematically calculated metallic and -core formula the band would only expand upon as they went on.
