Not just different...but better.

I've liked Mest since I heard "Wasting Time" in a basement somewhere when I was a teenager. Now, as a 20-something, I feel like Mest has made a record for me to enjoy. No longer singing about stupid things that kids do, with hormone jokes running amok (although that IS on the DVD), Mest has finally made their GREAT record. Don't get me wrong: I love "Destination: Unknown" and consider that to be a great open road CD. But it FEELS like a CD, almost like a mix-tape. It's a collection of great songs that are all up-tempo and loud, but they all sound the same. There's something good about that, but "Photographs" feels like an album; something you put in, listen to straight through and feel like you've gained something from it. Some may say their sound is darker, and I'd agree a bit. At first, the hints of blood, death and destruction left me rolling my eyes, but the song writing makes it better. Put songs like "Girl For Tonight", "Drawing Board" and "Hotel Room" out of your mind-that was a different band. This version of Mest writes harder, darker, more full rock, and they do it quite well. Songs like "Cursed" and "Can't Take This" are great examples. There are still some songs that sound like their old days, particularly the title track and "Cried Out To Heaven," which might be two of the catchiest songs they've ever written. Mest is a great band that's been around a while and deserves any success they get. I would also add that they put on an AMAZING live show. Pick up a ticket to see them, and pick up "Photographs" as well. Both are well worth the price of admission.

More than most bands!

Mest is more than most bands, first off they are extremely poppy but in a very good way. Second, their singer is extremely cool. Mest's overall sound is really pleasing. I have playlist of bands that I love to listen to and relax to, it is called my Chill list. Mest fits perfect on this playlist and is, in fact, on it. Now pop-rock is real genre. Mest is pop-rock. Mest is chill pop-rock. I really like how the whole feel is relaxing but still upbeat. A few songs that stand out in my head as exceptional, on this album, are Curse, kiss me kill me, This Time and Can’t Take This. These songs demonstrate Mest's best ability at song writing. After getting this album and becoming comfortable with its poppyness, you'll find yourself singing to all four songs and many others. The last song on the album, Last Kiss, is my mind is a great way to end the album. The entire cd seems to flow together very nicely from one track to another. When you hit Last Kiss the vocals and beat change. I knew it was the last song instantly! With each song lyrics having so much meaning behind each of them. The time spent shows on every track! I’d purchase this album. You should take a good listen to Mest and see whether you like it or not. I'm glad I was able to pick up this album and am excited for their next release! I would and do encourage everyone to pick up the album, and take time to listen to the lyrics!

Mest tries something new and pulls it off

I didn't expect Mest to do this good compared to their self-titled album. Some vocals by Jeremiah are catchy, while Tony's are still as good as the ones on MEST (but somewhat better). Don't miss out on this great CD. Nice job, Mest!
