Album Review

In the music industry as it existed from the 1960s to the 1990s, the Energy, a rock quartet based in Brooklyn, NY, are the sort of act that would be at the top of an A&R director's list for a major-label contract, a band that plays melodic yet hard guitar-driven rock, with an earnest, adenoidal tenor of a lead singer whose lyrics suggest he is unable to distinguish his own romantic life from the great philosophical questions of the ages. The Energy make music to fill basketball arenas with air-guitar aficionados and their swooning girlfriends, and to fill platinum-selling albums. But in 2009, the Energy are self-releasing their third album, Realize Your Sin, and are still working to develop a following through the much more fragmented promotional opportunities of the 21st century, such as placement of their songs on MTV's The Real World: Hollywood, Internet sites like MySpace, and that old reliable: touring, touring, touring. Even at a time when U2 continue to be the last rock band to defy the balkanization of popular music, the Energy, who clearly are influenced by U2, lack access to the mass media in a way that could catapult them to similar success. And do they deserve such success on the basis of Realize Your Sin? Maybe. Guitarist Ian VanderMeulen, bassist James Clifford, and drummer Zachary Thomas come up with tight, propulsive rock arrangements for the songs, and singer Adam Wolfsdorf puts considerable emotion into that tenor. Still, he's the weak link at this point, presenting melodies that often seem underdeveloped, and lyrics that sometimes seem to have gone missing from a heavy metal band; they're sketchy and doomy to no particular point. But it's the overall sound one looks for in a young group on the rise, and the Energy come off as a band worth seeing live, which, even in the marketing muddle of the contemporary music business, remains the key component in building a career.

Customer Reviews

Awesome album!

This album is really good, I'd recommend it to anyone who likes alt-y indie rock. Its relaxed, but still has a groove and I like the singer's distinctive voice. This band doesn't sound like any others out there right now, and I appreciate hearing something new and fresh. Check them out!
