Album Review

Taken on its own accord as a snapshot of a band's career, Causing a Catastrophe — Live is a bit lackluster on several fronts. What comes through loud and clear via big guitars and screaming fans is Flickerstick's rock star posturing. For at this mark, they are a young band, though not a bad band. They simply lack the artistic finesse and musical diversity of a more well-seasoned group, such as U2, R.E.M., or even Counting Crows. No doubt that will come with more experience and a few ego bruises. Judging by the audience reaction, they seem to be on the right track.

If you enjoy saying you knew a band way back when, check it out, because with a little luck, Flickerstick will be in it for the long haul.
