By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 4, 2008
Format: Audio CD
Maybe I'm abnormally picky, but I like my pop music to have something special and memorable, rather than just being a catchy melody.

And sadly I don't really find that in the Morning Light's debut EP, "The Sounds of Love." By the time I finished each song I was hard-pressed to remember what the songs sounded like -- this Pittsburgh band churns out a string of mildly catchy, blandly punky pop melodies.

"The Love" opens on a fairly interesting note -- a gentle, sunny guitar melody overlaid with Harrison Wargo's androgynous vocals, lamenting that he can't stand to sleep alone, but is also tongue-tied. It's a melodious little pop song, pleasant to the ear but not terribly memorable.

Then they kick off into a series of guitar pop melodies that sound a lot like an MTV pop-punk band -- the mall-emo lament "You're Not Mine," the riff-spurting "Safe Bet," a yowling fast-paced pop-punk anthem ("Pretend there's something more left in your town!"), a painfully awkward start-stopping, clanking rocker.

It actually rallies some with the last song -- "The Sounds" has a more delicate melody, with military drums, harmonies and expansive guitars. And there are some moments that echo the first song.

The Morning Light have some definite talent for more complex, less radio-friendly pop songs. Unfortunately, "Sounds of Love" is focused on a particularly bland, unmemorable brand of pop-rock -- it sticks to catchy repeating guitar melodies, and tries to add a harder edge for a sort-of-but-not-quite pop-punk sound.

Unfortunately, while their songs are catchy while you're actually listening to them, they don't really last -- the moments of piano, electronica and strings woven in are too brief and quiet to make a mark.

I loved these guys the two times I saw them live. And the drummer is perhaps one of my favorites I've ever seen. He's fantastic. I'd recommend You're not mine and Clouds, which are both great tracks.

this disc features great catchy, mostly upbeat, melodies featuring two talented vocalists. I own thoasands of CD's and admittidly At first listen..... i immediatley thought that this was just another typical band from this particular era. so i tossed the CD in a pile and forgot about it. but a week or two later i found myself wanting to hear these guys again. they are quite addictive in a sort've 60's/70's bubblegum way. then again? perhaps a better comparison might be the band "the format"(aim). I did a little bit of research and soon discovered that a few of these guys from Morning Light released 3 discs as the power pop outfit "Transition". great band aswell, surely worth a listen if you happen upon them. anyway, if any of this peeks your interest, i suggest you pick up both this EP and there self titled debut aswell. they are both excellant. Heck! For 1 cent, what have you got to lose?
