Moneen's 2009 release, The World I Want to Leave Behind, is certainly a sign of the times in the rock world — intricate musical bits are combined with emo-like vocals, and in the process, the group never forfeits the importance of melody. Sound like a familiar recipe? It should, as seemingly oodles of bands follow the same formula — especially those who find themselves playing on a Warped Tour stage. The Moneen gentlemen have obviously studied their vintage Sunny Day Real Estate recordings, especially on such tracks as "Believe," while throwing an early Radiohead-like curveball at us with "Redefine." Add to it some heavy Smashing Pumpkins guitar riffs ("Hold That Sound") and some mellow detours ("Lighters"), and you have to give Moneen some credit, as they refuse to be pigeonholed using a one-dimensional sound — something that the vast majority of their radio peers are quite guilty of.
Another great effort from one of my favorite bands!
i LOVE moneen. they never cease to amaze me with their artistry. This album is different than their previous albums, it is more mellow, but frick, STRINGS??!!! EPIC. that's all i can say. it is one of those albums that just make you want to sit with a cup of tea, stare out into the world, and think/ reflect. Moneen = definitely one of the best canadian bands out there.
