One Left, The nature of the beast

Serious stuff this: "...if you long for more than the potpourri of words that pass as lyrics and the solipsism of the new guard..." then, the press release says, this could be the disc for you. If you further yearn for American college-rock of the mid-period REM, Soul Asylum-with-an-edge variety then this is definitely the disc for you. There's 11 songs here, all solid, crafted works and, yes, the lyrics are a cut above the average, if a little worthy at times, although the music never really gets out of third gear in the pace and excitement stakes. On the whole, this is a good album, especially so if your tastes lean in this direction anyway. The one thing that's left for the band to do, though, is let rip now and again.
