Editorial Reviews

Even while Braid kept its name on the tip of peoples' tongues, the prospect of hearing new music from the band remained elusive -- until now. It took only a few practices to write three tracks and arrange a cover (of Jeff Hanson's "You Are the Reason"), all of which the band then recorded with engineer J. Robbins (Jawbreaker, The Promise Ring, Jets to Brazil, Frame and Canvas).

Format: Audio CD
From 1993 to 1999 emo pioneers (back when emo wasn't a dirty word) Braid tore through the post punk world with catchy, chugging riffs, layered with slightly off kilter guitars and slightly off kilter vocal melodies. But these songs built a memorable scene that went missing about 10 years ago. Braid's last formal full length "Frames and Canvas" still gets heavy play from me with its stop start opener "New Nathan Detroits" it had several songs that I considered to be ear worms. A brief reunion tour in 2004 is the last we saw of Braid until now.

Four song ep "Closer to Closed" opens up with "The Right Time" sung by secondary vocalist Chris Broach. Frankly, it sounds nothing like Braid, but it sounds a lot like the 2000's emo bands that littered the scene with boring pseudo-emotional music. This song would fit perfectly on a "Sunday's Best" album, but it is not Braid. Where are the noisy off kilter guitar riffs? Where is the tense, tightly wound vocals or fist pumping anthems? They have been sadly replaced with half-hearted, half tempo pop/punk and I use that term loosely. The dueling guitar parts are gone, instead they have two mostly uninteresting guitar lines that are mixed together in a bland wash of sound.

The next three songs, all sung by Bob Nanna are cut from the same cloth as the first. Sounding as if they were throw aways from Nanna's post Braid project "Hey Mercedes". The way the songs are sung and played sound like the band is not that interested in their own music. "Do Over" is missing every vital aspect of the original flavor of the band and you can hear them try desperately to capture the sound again in the last 30 seconds of the song, but they fall well short.
