"Album Review: Every Avenue - Picture Perfect"

If there is one thing Fearless Records knows, its catchy, upbeat pop-rock that the kids will eat up in big doses. The Maine, Mayday Parade, Artist vs Poet, Sparks The Rescue and Every Avenue are all part of the Fearless family. This review focuses on the latters new album 'Picture Perfect', the follow up to 'Shh... Just Go With It', an album that increased the fans popularity even more and saw the band come over to the UK a few times.

Fans who loved the bands last release will love this, as its more of the same hook-filled pop-rock. Tracks like 'Mindset' and 'Tell Me A Wreck' have a pleasant, bouncy tempo. Although there are signs of depth as the title track ('Perfect Picture') makes good use of an electronic effect and shows they are more than your straight up catchy guitar band.

It is also worth mentioning that musically the band are strong and do not sound over-produced and David Strauchman's vocals work brilliantly well with the bands style.

'Picture Perfect' as a whole sounds fine but these tracks on their own sound generic. 'Finish What You Started' is rather predictable, whilst 'I Forgive You' follows the same pattern and structure. Throw in the occasional soft track 'The Story Left Untold' and 'Happy The Hard Way' and you're left with 11 sentimental slices of US pop-rock.

Overall Every Avenue lean more towards the rock side of things; the bands sound more fuller but the hooks are still in heavy demand, as that is what the band know they can do well. Whether it will continue the bands increase in popularity is an uncertainty but it will please those who have already hooked on to the band. - Sean Reid

"Young Giant Review"

If it didn't state so boldly in the band's press material that frontman Dan Eaton and drummer Jake Ryan logged time in noisecore act the Chariot, you would likely never put those two bands together from the sound of Queens Club's full-length debut. It has a similar energy and drive, sure, but of a sort that you would sooner find in the variety of British pop groups that this Missouri-based quartet quite baldly references.

There's an Editors-style spin to the dreamy "Dust," a pulsing but lightweight take of Arctic Monkeys' cheeky pop on album opening "Are We? Will We?" and a bit of Franz Ferdinand's disco charge found in the deliriously romantic "Lydia" (a song that also manages to include, of all things, a bit of a Brazilian percussion breakdown).

What outs the band as a purely American outfit is the relentless enthusiasm that permeates Young Giant. They try to counteract with the critical bon mots found in the bold-faced track "I'm American" ("I fight for your rights/I wear a fancy tie/I'm only working for/You middle-class Americans/I'm controversial/See the commercial"). But that song is surrounded by the kind of fist pumping sing-alongs and open-armed appeals that even the nicest of the British outfits that Queens Club reference wouldn't be caught dead spouting. - Robert Ham
