Album Review

Wavering between post-grunge and emo, Cohesion is an entirely derivative record, but has enough sincerity, bombast, and — most importantly — hooks to be excused for this. The songs rely on simple, appropriately dark guitar textures and simplistic punk rhythms that propel the music nicely, and Daniel Sanders has a nice youthful roar — not too weepy, but just able to convey loud angst in a manner that makes it catchy instead of heart-wrenching. A couple of tunes utilize a slower tempo, and "Spider" has a bigger hook than the rest, but on the whole, the album is, indeed, cohesive — straightforward enough to recall 3 Doors Down or My Chemical Romance, but also done with the slick precision that characterized post-grunge. It's obviously no coincidence that the record was produced by Gil Norton, who worked with Foo Fighters (as well as Pixies, but you won't hear them anywhere on Cohesion).

But on Cohesion, it somehow becomes part of the package: this is teenager music, stuff written by a bunch of guys who discover the world with eyes wide open and overflowing with emotion, completely sure no one has ever experienced these feelings before — or expressed them with this set of riffs and lyrics. The actual musicians may be past their teens, but it doesn't matter. Such a record cannot break any new ground by default, but Gyroscope's belief in what they do helps them to write some powerful songs that may require déjà vu suspension, but stay in mind nevertheless.


Genre: Rock

Years Active:

Originally known as Gyroscope Sunday, Aussie alt-rock four-piece Gyroscope formed in Perth, Western Australia, in 1997. Within a year, the band had a demo to push, and was playing as many shows as possible to build up its following. In 2000, Gyroscope had built up a decent support résumé, as they had been lucky enough to score gigs with bands like Unwritten Law and Reel Big Fish, and were ready to record their first two EPs. Both eventually saw the light of day in 2001, just before the band took...
