Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Amazon.com

Though this semi-anguished boy-metal group claims that lock-jawed Helmet is a primary influence (and layers of frayed guitar chords support that claim) Trust Company are better characterized as a simpler and slightly more heartfelt relative of Linkin Park. Minus the turntables and digital tricks, but laden with revealing lyrics, a wide guitar sound, and thumping rock rhythms, Trust Company charge fearlessly through the gaping hole in the pop landscape left by more famous contemporaries. Thanks to Linkin producer Don Gilmore, their major-label debut is smoother than those of Papa Roach and Puddle of Mudd. To their detriment, they're sometimes lulled by the slickness of their polished hooks. Like the title implies, the ride is more impressive when the band dares to veer beyond its own neutrality. --Ian Christe

O.K....Im not going to pretend like I've known about Trust Company for years. The thing I will do is tell it like it is. This CD is the best CD I have bought this year, next to the Vines. If you are looking for variety on this cd, forget about it. But if I hear one more time that Trust Company sounds like Linkin Park.....I will flip out. There is no hip-hop involved, just fine precision strings of bass, guitar, drums, and hard emotional vocals. They sound like a less electronic Stabbing Westward. To be honest, this CD is a different sound.....soon to be copied. Very upfront, very catchy. Many hooks and loops that stick in your head. Its not like anything out now. I can see where the guitars and screaming vocals sound like Linkin Park.....but the truth is..nobody sounds like Trust Company. MTV2 was right about them. They are a new breed of rock and roll. Real melancholy though, but at the same time....healing. The standout songs......"Hover", the first single "downfall", and my all time favorite "deeper into you". This song will soon be radio staple like Puddle of Mudd's Blurry, mark my words. I haven't handed out 5 stars except to Linkin Park's Hybrid THeory, Santan's Supernatural, and Jay-Z's Blueprint....so you know Trust Company is deserving. Please buy this cd, and play endlessly!
Enjoy!!!!!!!!

I see TRUSTcompany's major label debut, THE LONELY POSITION OF NEUTRAL, as an 11-song collection that showcases a blend of the sounds of the most popular rock bands of the past few years. All of the songs are very catchy, well-written, and great fun to listen to, but in the end, this is not a 5-star album. Why? This band draws very heavily from Linkin Park (mainly in the vocal style) and other bands such as Nickelback, Default, etc., that have been popular in the past year or two (many of whom also drew very heavily from bands that had been popular just before that).
All in all, this is a CD that is selling [inexpensively] at most stores, and I'd recommend picking it up. There haven't been all that many impressive albums released this summer for rock fans, and this is definitely worth the price tag. If you enjoyed HYBRID THEORY especially for its melodic sections you will love this, as it really does sound like Linkin Park without the rapper. I normally would give the album only 2 or 3 stars because of this (I have slammed Default's album for practically burning a carbon copy of Nickelback's SILVER SIDE UP), but it's impossible because TRUSTcompany has taken the formula and perfected it with a series of incredibly catchy, fun, and amazing sounding songs.
The best songs on the CD are "Hover," "Running From Me," and the single, "Downfall," in my opinion. The majority of the other songs are also very good.
My advice: as long as you are a fan of the rock of the past year or two, this will be a very good album for you....If you are one of these people and are looking for a groundbreaking record that doesn't sound much like anything out there, though, this is far from what you want. For everyone else, though, give it a try, and you'll find that these copycats have succeeded where I believe the aforementioned groups have miserably failed: in writing songs with "identity" that have varying and impressive melodies and decent lyrics.

(Warning: The word "catchy" will be overused in this review)

Sure, TLPON contains simplistic music. Sure, the lyrics are slightly depressing, and unmemorable. And sure, it's very polished and overproduced. But you know what? I don't care. At all. Because I don't think I will ever come across a cd EVER that is as perfectly catchy as this one. It's amazing how all the hooks and ALL THE VERSES!! are simply infectious. TC somehow developed a "magic formula" that enabled them to churn out hook after hook with remarkable consistency. Going song by song...

1) Downfall: First single and sucked me into the band. It was one of my favorite songs ever when I heard it and still remains a classic.

2) Falling Apart: More than any other song on the CD, this one truly gets better with each listen. I don't know what else to say but amazing. The way it builds up from the verse into the chorus is damn near breathtaking.

3) Hover: Simply incredible song, and my favorite on the album. (Unless it's Falling Apart) I really think this should've been the second single instead of...

4) Running From You: Second single, and quite honestly one of the weaker songs. It just doesn't grab me like the rest of them do. It's still a great track; it's just in such quality company. I'm starting to appreciate it more now but overall it's not as accessible as most of the rest.

5) Slipping Away: Just another infectious hook that you'll find yourself singing all the time. And those crazy, push-the-envelope guys throw you for a loop with an offbeat (!!!!!) guitar pattern at the beginning.

6) Figure 8: Harder, more driving than the other songs. Another amazingly catchy hook. Grows on me.

I've always said that you can tell a lot about a band by the way they put themselves out into the open. In terms of what I think works the best, going for the subtleness angle usually seems to work. Bands like Slipknot who wear masks and scream and yell and say they hate the world really have no business in the music industry. They are not a band, just a bunch of angry guys that get together and clunk heads. Bands shouldn't wear costumes. Bands shouldn't vomit onstage. Bands should play music, and mean what they say in their words.
Trust Company had me at hello.
I had the opportunity to see this band open for Sevendust (the world's finest band ever) and was very impressed. They had emotion in their songs and got the crowd moving, and they did it without lighting themselves on fire, vomiting on the crowd... All they did was play songs. I bought the CD the day it came out and found that it was not corrupted by recording equipment at all. The lyrics are very good and deal with standing out in a world where it's so hard to do so, as well as dealing with things that all human beings have to go through. It sounds clicheed, but I promise you that it's not because of the simplicity with which they write about it. I believe that the soft-spoken usually have the most depth, and Trust Company really proves this to be true because of how they write their songs.
This band is going places. Their first single "Downfall" will not be their last. This debut is beyond anything I've ever seen. The last debut to have this much promise was Creed's first disc, and look where they are now. Trust Company is a great band, and you don't have to peel off their masks to see that.
