Editorial Reviews

Tommy Rogers (aka Thomas Giles), lead vocalist, keyboardist and founding member of the award-winning North Carolina progressive rock band Between The Buried and Me will release his debut solo album 'Pulse' on February 1st, 2011 via Metal Blade Records. The versatile front man and multi-instrumentalist not only self-produced the record, but also arranged, composed, and played all the instruments on the recording.

Recorded with Jamie King at The Basement Studios in Winston-Sales, NC, Pulse is a challenging rock record designed so that the parts build up to a larger, cinematic-like structure were everything from production to arrangements to lyrics to album art is carefully crafted towards a unified purpose. Testing the limits of what he can do naturally with his voice, Rogers' strikingly beautiful falsetto and dynamic range conjures tales of anxiety, collapse, end-times, and strength against swelling, heart-lifting arrangements and pristine backdrops of ambient loops, digital burbles, analog hiss, and woozy drones. Exploring combinations of the outré genres of both post-rock and glitch, the music's emotionally resonant yet textural sounds draw reference to artists such as Radiohead, Bjork, the Verve, Beck, Steorolab, and Spiritualized, balancing both rock and electronic impulses.

This is a nice little collection of songs, and there are even a few moments when it borders on Radiohead-like brilliance. Unfortunately, those moments are few and far between, and even when they happen one can't help but think, "this sounds like someone doing a really nice Radiohead impersonation."

NIN is another influence that shows up rather obviously, and the same thing holds true--yeah, it sounds like Rogers doing Reznor at his best, but what did he ADD to the equation to make it his own?

I'm a huge BTBAM fan, and the best thing about this album is Rogers' voice. However, the passion just doesn't seem to be there in his solo effort the way it is for his band.

I'm not sorry I bought this disc, and there are certainly gems. But overall it's unambitious and disappointing.

If you're buying this album expecting to hear anything even vaguely reminiscent of BTBAM, then it's just not for you. Prepare yourself for a thoughtfully constructed exploration of sounds and themes, guided by the brilliant Tommy Rogers. He stays with clean vocals for most of the album and really shows off his impressive vocal range. This is an incredible effort created and recorded by Tommy with the help of BTBAM producer Jamie King. At times, the album is a bit derivative of Trent Reznor, but it never stays there very long. Expect to hear flowing, beautiful movements with heavy synth leads. If you're even the slightest bit a fan of Tommy's vocal work in BTBAM (or the band itself), then you owe it to yourself to give this album a listen: it will definitely surprise you.

I love Between the Buried & Me. Tommy Giles is an incredibly talented musician. He does everything himself on this album, and it's very impressive. I've already listened to this at least 10 times through and I've only had it for a few days. My favorite songs are the last 2, "Armchair Travel" and "Hypoxia." Great album - very glad I purchased it.

Between the Buried and Me is obviously a very talented band composed of some the best musical minds in metal today. Tommy Rogers furthers this argument with this masterful release. It's obvious that Rogers was itching to escape the confines of metal. There was a lot he was trying to do with Between the Buried and Me that he couldn't explore further because of what kind of band Between the Buried and Me is.

Pulse is the culmination of that experimentation. Rogers is more free to explore and experiment and it sounds pretty darn good. This is not a metal album, it's a album of ideas coming to life. There is honestly something for everyone here.

There isn't a lot to say about the album itself because, quite frankly, it's difficult to describe. It's something you should go out and buy and experience. Regardless of what kind of music you're into. Just play it with an open mind and the mindset that you're ready to go along on the journey that Rogers takes you on for the duration of the album.

My favorite track is probably the finisher, Hypoxia. I think it perfectly embodies what the album is about and is a very strong conclusion to an amazing album. So if you're having doubt, check that song out.
