Editorial Reviews

Nearly a decade after the release of their classic debut UNITED BY FATE, Rival Schools have finally returned from their hiatus to deliver their long-awaited follow-up, PEDALS. The album is an immensely satisfying second dose of what made the band so cherished when they first hit the scene, and serves a reminder of their influence on so many young bands active today.

really, if youve been listening to united by fate for the past eight years as have i, you will be enormously grateful for this latest blessing from walter and bandmates. just a great, great album. it sounds so ambitious and yet it is balanced by a perfect simpleness. the melodies, the lyrics, the tempos, the riffs, the layering of the guitar rythyms and leads, which i hear playing pleasantly in my head while falling asleep at night,or even while im at work and people are boring me to death with stupid questions, the production, even the order of the songs is just so perfect. and of course walters vocals, one of rocks most unique and under appreciated vocalist,(actually the band itself seems under appreciated, and are so great they will probably stay that way.)which give this collection of songs an unmistakeable rival schools sound. yet there are moments where the ghost of quicksand and walking concert reveal themselves briefly. and then there were moments when i was reminded of coldplays x and y and maybe a bit of stone temple pilots. pedals, the album rocks, walter schreifels is a musical genius, and my writing skills (comma, comma,comma,) tonight are atrocious, but i highly recommend that if you are cheap you overcome your cheapness, and if you spend without end you buy two or more, or you know you could just buy one like me and hope that the rest of the great band liking world actually takes notice and starts buying huge amounts of this cd because, you know i think these guys really deserve to be up there. unbelievable amounts of recommendation for rival schools pedals.

All in all, I would rate this CD higher overall than United By Fate, BUT none of the songs on this CD are as good as some of those on the other CD. For example, Travel By Telephone, and Everything Has its Point are absolutely great songs. However for me the rest of United By Fate tails off for me after the first few songs, but it might be an unfair comparison based on the strength of those two songs. Pedals also starts off on a strong point. For me, Wring it Out is another great song. However, the songs on this CD have a lot more going for them when listening to them making this a better overall effort.

Another important point to watch out for is if you download the MP3 album, like I did, there are two versions to choose from. There is the standard version which only has the 10 songs that come on the CD, and a deluxe version where you get 3 bonus tracks and a video of Shot After Shot. The weird thing is that they cost the same (or did when I bought it). I would buy the deluxe version since the 3 extra tracks are better than some of those that come on the standard CD.

So on to the album review on its own merits. As I already mentioned, Wring it Out is the best song on the CD. It followed by another strong song, 69 Guns, which has a hard rocking verse but then when the chorus hits, the aggressive guitar gets out of the way for a string accented, melodic chorus. After Choose our own Adventure, the band changes up the first three hard rocking songs to 'Running To Red Lights', which starts off with an acoustic guitar strumming, and is only accented by electric guitars.

After this more mellow song, it doesn't take long for the band to get back to rocking hard again with 'Shot after Shot'.

I'm loving the album. I can't stop listening to it and I can't keep it out of my head when I'm not listening to it. Thanks to Walter, Sammy and the boys for doing us all proud. Now if walter can only do a solo tour, tour with Rival Schools and a Quicksand reunion album/tour then I ( and a lot of other people!) can die happy.
