The Gym Class Travies,
This review is from: The Papercut Chronicles II (Audio CD)
Going into this I had a high expectation about this album. Yes, Papercut Chronicles was a classic and timeless album. No, I did not expect to hear another PPC with this release. A part of me had hopes that the band would be definitely involved more. The epic Papercut Chronicles we all know and love started with these 4 basic elements: 1. Drums 2. Bass 3. Guitar 4. Vocals. I regret to to feel this is nothing other than a continuation of Travis' solo project. With overbearing audio effects and laxadasical singing, its tough to distinguish weather the band is playing behind Travis at all. This may be the demise of the GCH from Geneva as we know it, but one thing's for sure; there will never be another release more timeless than the debut FBR release Papercut Chronicles. My advice, play some instruments, and more effort.
