Time Spent Driving – Just Enought Bright

Time Spent Driving

These songs are all very well written, and a definite step forward from their debut CDEP. This actually reminds me quite a bit of Knapsack, though quite a bit slower. The tempos in general are slower than your average indie rock band, which can be both good and bad. On the more subtle songs, it works really well to have everything moving a step slower. A good example of that is on “If The Fault Fits”, which is one of the best songs on the record. But in some of the more upbeat, and poppy songs, it makes things feel a little bit sluggish. When it comes down to it, this is a good, well put together record that covers the same ground as a lot of mid-90’s emo bands. The production is courtesy of J. Robbins, and fits the band really well. The vocals are distinct, and well sung, which also helps things out a lot since some of the songs rely heavily on the vocal melody. This is a solid first full-length effort, though nothing I’d really hunt down. Fans of Knapsack, Jejune or the more straightforward Christie Front Drive stuff will love this though.
