"Up And Down" is Quietdrive’s fifth studio album and the second in a year. We got the cover album "Your Record / Our Spin" last year, which was a pleasant experience with new interpretations of classic, selected by the fans.
Ever since their debut "When All That's Left Is You" from 2006 I have been a big fan of their really catchy and melodic rock that feels like a great addition to Eve 6 and The All-American Rejects. Does even think that Quitedrive is better than those with much more even albums and stronger songs. They have unfortunately not received the same cult status, but they have, however, been signed with both Epic and Militia Group which shows that they have that little extra.
"Up And Down" then follow the same track as the previous albums with a nice dose of pop / rock on a meeting with power-pop and pop-punk. The more emotional "This Is Love" and "All This Time" are my favorites, but "Crazy" is perhaps the one with the most potential and had been given here if AAR had released it! Check it out if you like the stylish and well crafted pop / rock!
