A Change of Pace is not too much of a change, really. Stylistically similar to many of its musical colleagues, this stands out in few ways. They are musically creative beyond many of the innumerable emo-hardcore act out there. They are also chunkier than most, and thus a lot more interesting to listen to, musically.
Beyond that, they have really perfected the same chord structures, song developments, and vocal harmonic patterns that a gazillion bands like them have accomplished.
There is definitely a huge amount of potential for a band with this much talent, and access to this impressive level of production, but it is going to take some innovation to propel A Change of Pace to a remarkable place.
