The Blackout - Hope

Pär Winberg Format: Album
Year: 2011
Label: Cooking Vinyl
Genre: Post Hardcore
Artist discography


Imagine "Funeral For A Friend" and "Rage Against the Machine" in a battle of who can shout loudest and in the background you find "30 Seconds to Mars" and "My Chemical Romance" who're playing pop. There you have a summary of what to expect from the album by The Blackout. I get confused by "The Blackouts" post-hardcore rock. The CD ranges from rock-hard hardcore to catchy pop hits, and I find it hard to see where the Welsh really want to go. The best thing about the disc is definitely Sean Smith's and Gavin Butlers vocals and the tight production.But at the same time, The Blackout should have cred that they find their way choruses that quickly attaches itself to the listener's consciousness. The opening track, the brilliant "Ambition Is Cricket", sounds like a commercial-oriented At The Drive In-tune, and "You're Not Alone" is also a catchy "bastard" that stick like glue in your brain.
