Review

War Tapes' first full-length record is one of those albums that I have been listening to over and over again ever since I got it. The Continental Divide is one of those albums that music snobs will be talking about years from now when War Tapes becomes huge. They will all claim that they heard it first, and were into the band before anyone else was.

The second track on the album, "Dreaming of You", is one of the best tracks that I have heard in a while. It is fully reminiscent of The Cure in the best way, and it has powerful vocals akin to Depeche Mode. Basically the track takes all of the awesome rock from the 80s, and mashes it together while still making it sound relevant to today's music scene.

The album maintains a very dark 80s vibe throughout the whole disc. War Tapes is able to provide this dark 80s sound while still sounding fresh which is where a lot of actual 80s acts tend to fall flat with their new albums. The band also evokes thoughts of The Killers in a few tracks.

If you have a few extra bucks for music this month, make sure you pick up War Tapes' The Continental Divide. You won't be disappointed. Also, make sure you check out the band this summer on tour with VNV Nation. -- The Rock And Roll Supershow, May 26, 2009

Great band. Saw them live, and they made a damn fine accounting for themselves. Has influences from Smashing Pumpkins, Bravery, and old 80's alternative. Lead singer has a very recognizable, very unique voice.

On the treadmill, working those abs or walking my dog....there is a song for every mood and time. Great lyrics, a chorus that will not leave my mind and it urges me to move and dance. I received the CD as a gift and I have not stopped listening. I didn't think it was going to be "for me" but once I listened ...I was an instant fan. Buy it for yourself or give it as a gift. This band is going to stick around!!!

"The Continental Divide" by War Tapes is going to be a classic album. A complete work of art, clever lyrics, great vocals and driving guitars. Neil Popkin's vocals recall the best of Morrissey. "Dreaming of You" is a must hear track.

I recently got this album, and beyond being completely impressed with this band, I would recommend it for anyone. It's completely worth the money!

Not often an entire cd is worth listening to but War Tapes have included 11 plus bonus 12 songs that you won't fast forward.. I love the harmonies between brother and sister.. and the words are gut wrenching and honest.. I'm wearing my cd out already!!!! Get your own, you'll love it.

Simply put, I just can't stop listening. My favorite song on the disc changes each day depending on my mood. If you only like country music, this one may not be for you...but for the rest of you, pick up this disc and introduce yourself to War Tapes. It's the dankness.
