"These Promises Are Being Videotaped" is an explosive progression for El Ten Eleven. Arguably harder rock than either of their two previous albums, ETE once again shines and delivers a phenomenally upbeat and engaging record. Dunn and Fogarty continue to stun with their ability to manipulate their instruments. Dunn kicks out some seriously head-bouncing bass-work and intricate looping while Fogarty seems to focus more on his electric drum set. Fogarty's blend of complex and skill-demonstrating fills, combined with his aim at simple yet powerful time-keeping make the duo an incredibly dynamic and mesmerizing team.

"These Promises Are Being Videotaped" is yet another awe-inspiring record which demonstrates ETE's ability to rock out with the best of them with such technical prowess as to bring many modern rock bands to shame at their power chords and 4/4 beats. If you've listened to any ETE record before, you certainly won't be disappointed. Notably, songs with intense emotional appeal from days gone by (songs such as Connie or Bye Mom) are not prominent on this record. What seems to be more in the vein of "Every Direction Is North", the band still produces a record worth your time and money. These guys have a lot of potential and they know how to exercise it.

As this severely underrated unit continues refining forward (something in itself sadly -frighteningly even- rarely seen in these genres, these days) their blisteringly brief introspective jams are so agreeably stimulating you wish they would flesh out a full-fledged masterwork, perhaps adding another member to the entrancingly personal minimalism in order to finalize a fullness their albums seem to evade.

I've been an El Ten Eleven fan for the past year, and I will say that at first, this album never stuck out to me as a favorite. But the more I listen to it, the more I begin to appreciate the meaning and emotion embedded in the music. I think this album is a bit more upbeat than some of the others in the regard that it makes me think it has a few traces of hard rock in it. Nonetheless, this album is masterfully composed, and I really think El Ten Eleven nailed it on this one.

Another great album from El Ten Eleven. Innovative and fresh, instrumental rock with a danceable edge to it. My only caveat is that the album and most songs are too short. I wish they would just go off and jam the tracks out a little bit, as that would easily elevate the album to a higher level. Definitely something worth checking out.
