The band's sound isn't original, sure, but at least they execute this familiar sound better than bands like Nickelback, Theory of a Deadman, and Daughtry, not saying that those bands are bad in any way. I'd say this band's sound is more along the lines of Adelitas Way and Cavo, which are both good radio-rock sounding bands that aren't too popular. Also, this album has no traces of profanity, which I have seen in Theory of a Deadman and Nickelback, and even something great like Shinedown.
Onto the actual album. Some of the standout tracks are the title track, Buried in the Ground, leadoff single Bitter End, and Silent Gun, even though all of them hark to that basic song structure. There are some flaws with this album. Even with its haunting verses and very well executed (even though unoriginal) chorus, Buried in the Ground ends very abruptly, clocking in at 2 minutes and 20 seconds, and with no final chorus to conclude the song. I wish the song was longer and more effective, but it's still my favorite song nonetheless. Other than being simple, the lyrics are not entirely of new topics. Also, the album is way too short, giving us only 10 tracks, which is not a complete amount of songs.Read more ›
(They're also awesome live, but that has nothing to do with this...)
The only fly in the ointment, which I notice is shared by a large number of the hard rock albums I have purchased over the last couple years, is the approach taken in an attempt to make the material as "loud" as possible. The result is most noticeable on the track "Silent Gun". During the choruses the audio "pumps and breaths" so severely it is truly distracting.
The band is talented and it sounds like the original recording was solid, but whoever mastered this album was clearly asleep at the wheel.

I was not to happy that it's a paper cd case. It would have been fine if the case was hard plastic.Published on November 15, 2013 by Andrew White
