"Noisebox EP Review"

Straight-cut, no nonsense rock n’ roll is the debut EP from Welsh band Reece and is a great indication of fierce determination, sticking true to your guns and having a good time doing it.

Though a veteran by most standards, Rob Reece (Lead Vocals) sure has kept up to date and doesn’t try to relive the 90’s over again. This EP has a modern vibe and with a vocal sounding incredibly fresh, you could easily mistake this for an up-and-coming young rock band judging by the tracks alone.

‘Fear’, the first single from the EP, along with the title track is hard-hitting and to the point, with solid support from Russ Rogers’ drumming and Jon Davies on guitar, while ‘Peace and Harmony’slows it down a notch and includes some great melodic hooks. However, it’s the closing track, ‘I Won’t Let This Go To Waste’, that stands out and wraps things up on a high note. With a country-blues edge, it has everything you’d expect from a great southern style rock song; prominent slide guitars, pulsating rhythms and story-telling lyrics.

Despite not making it to the big leagues yet, there’s no stopping these guys doing what they love. In this day and age, where music acts have become increasingly about image and trying to extend their fifteen minutes of fame for as long as possible, it’s refreshing to come across a hard-working band who possess genuine talent, doesn’t bow down to conventions and is in it purely for the passion.

"Noisebox EP Review"

I have been listening to it for most of last night and most of today. Since I started to listen to this E.P., I have come appreciated where Reece’s influences have come from.

In the first track on the E.P. Fear, this is a really cool song, as it has got some really cool vocals and some nifty guitars and drums on it. The influences on this track, that I could hear is a bit of Bon Jovi, in the vocals with a bit of Tom Petty. The guitars has some Dream Theater and the drums has a mixture of some Gary Newman and the people that i mentioned.

Peace & Harmony, has definitely got a Marillion kick to it as the beginning of the track reminds of Marillion’ Brave album and this continues through the song, plus there is a hint of R.E.M. in there as well which make this song interesting, and is one of my favourite tracks off the E.P.

Noisebox is my favourite track of the E.P. as this has got that oomph to it. The drums of this reminds me of Ian Mosely of Marillion fame, and Robert Reece’ vocals on this are superb as you can hear his influence of Marillion’ singer Steve Hogarth. The guitars are sublime as there is some nice riffage on this track.

I Won’t Let This Go To Waste is a really nice chill out song, as there is some sweet guitars and some nice drums, the vocals really capture the tone of this track superbly, and you can definitely hear some Bon Jovi on this track.

Overall This E.P. is amazing. It is one those little gems that you unexpectedly stumble upon, and you think “Oh yeah, this band is pretty cool”.

I would give Reece a 4.5 out of 5 for this brilliant Prog Rock E.P.
