Album Review

It's disappointing that Universal didn't feel confident enough in Minus.Driver to fund a full-length debut from the young Atlanta group. Despite its similarities in taste and tone to compadres such as Deftones, Incubus, and especially Hoobastank (with whom the band shares a parent label), Minus.Driver still manages to impress on A Message for You. Led by the at once seering/pleading vocals of Jordan Williams, M.D mines the surging post-hardcore dynamic impressively on tracks like "Inhuman" and "Lie to You." Prerequisite top-notch production (courtesy of veteran helmer Matt Wallace) ensures that the guitars will fairly roar over piercing drum rolls, while "Sure Thing" takes advantage of voice multi-tracking to build the kind of tension angry suburban kids need when parents just don't understand. Over before it began at a brief five tracks, A Message for You leaves you wanting more. Then again, Minus.Driver's principals are barely old enough for drink tickets, so there's a chance Universal knew what it was doing restricting them to an EP. (After all, Hoobastank's eponymous first effort was recently re-released with half of its original track listing excised.) Whatever; with Message, Minus.Driver makes it clear that it's broadcasting something worth hearing, and that's proof enough of talent in a genre as rigidly controlled as this.

Good but not AS good...

Too bad iTunes doesn't have the old <MINUS> CD. That's their best album. This one isn't bad, but if you can find the original Structure of Simplicity CD under the name <MINUS>, pick that one up!

[minus]

I used to love these guys. I have seen them several times in Atlanta and they put on an amazing show. This album was definitely a turning point for the band, but personally I prefer the album that they came out with under the name [minus]. iTunes, Please find the album Structure of Simplicity!!!

agree with others!!!!!

Structure of Simplicity is an amazing album and I have it on an old mp3 player that I can't reboot now because if I do the album is lost forever to me. This one is good to but nothing compared to the album prior to the name change. If itunes ever found a way to put that album on here I would buy it in a heart beat. My one copy I had got stolen from me and they don't make it anymore. Sad day!

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

Minus.Driver hailed from Atlanta, GA, where vocalist Jordan Williams and bassist Lee met as high schoolers. The duo became Minus after uniting with guitarist Dustin and drummer Matt, and was soon struggling for gigs in the competitive Atlanta club and house party scene. Internet exposure led to a performance (alongside another young group, Incubus) on the short-lived TV show Farmclub; it was also around this point that threatened legal action persuaded Minus to add a period and "Driver" to its name....
