Typical pop rock, but I liked it...
on December 4, 2010
Don't let the band name mislead you to thinking this is metal or emo pop punk. This is a rock band. Too weak to be metal, but too gritty to be pop. If you like bands like Nickelback, Sick Puppies, Hinder, or Three Days Grace you might like My Darkest Days. Don't expect anything deep or original here. I can hear the influence of Chad Kroeger and Matt Walst's big brother from Three Days Grace, but Walst's vocals are a Hell of a lot more tolerable than Adam Gontier and his bandmates are damn good muscians. I was impressed w/ the cover of Duran Duran's Come Undone. It had just enough rock added to give it a new twist and even if Walst doesn't have Simon Le Bon's range or vocal experience, he did a great job. Overall, this is a better than usual debut album. I hope this band sticks around. I'd like to hear Walst get little more vocal training and the band create a sound of their own. Maybe next time I can give them 5 stars.
