Customer Reviews

This band absolutely has to be known

I couldn't be happier that guitarist/vocalist Joey Rubenstein sent me a message on MySpace asking to listen to his band. I expected what every other alternative kind of band brings out. And I would have been fine with that, I'm always glad to hear another band that sounds just like the rest. But what I got was an assortment of songs with impressively difficult time signatures from the incredibly talented guitars, insanely fast drums and well ranged vocals, and each song with originality from both their other songs and any other song from any other band. I bought this CD on iTunes the day it was available and couldn't have been happier with that.

Running From Lacuna: 4.5/5 - As I'll probably say for all these songs, the guitars are very cool in this song. The vocals are addicting and the drums suit everything with impressive skill. The lyrics can be very good and original, but can also be a bit bland.

The Extortionist: 4.5/5 - Apparently a favorite of everyone, the guitars are even more impressive and cool on this song. The double bass drums can easily be heard and sound great in the song. I love the vocals and lyrics too.

Disposable Company Makes a Lonely Man: 5/5 - My first favorite. The time signatures get a bit more tricky, but are played with ease by the band. The guitars and drums are simpler, but are well suited to the song. The vocals are what catches me. They get very high and the lyrics are great.

La Charliere: 5/5 - Switches between heavy and soft very nicely and shows another side of ITO. The vocals are the high point of this song as well because of the impressive range. One of the few songs that manages to stay 4/4 for the majority of its length (except for the ending, which sounds very good). Drums stay simple but the guitars are skillful and sound great in the song.

Esophagus: 5/5 - Another amazing song that has vocals that stand out. And this song is also one of the only ones with impressively played time signatures that I am still unable to follow (thats a good thing). The lyrics are very good too.

The Man Who Cried Wolf: 4/5 - Not much to say about this one. I don't listen to it as much, but I know it's still pretty good.

Tragedy of the Commons: 4/5 - Feel the same way about this one as The Man Who Cried Wolf. I prefer this one though and can tell the time signatures are much more impressive on this one.

Game of Jenga: 3.5/5 - Another fan favorite. I'm not particularly a fan because I don't like the way the guitar sounds in the main riff. The drums sound too simple and the vocals don't catch my attention like I know they can.

Invertebrate: 5/5 - And the album picks up again. I absolutely love the drums in this song; it's one of my favorites to play along with. The guitar isn't too hard or easy, but sounds very good with the song. And the vocals lay over it all very nicely with a good range.

Igloo: 4/5 - This song is good, but nothing quite stands out. I like the vocals the most.

Yellow Bricks: 5/5 - Nothing wrong with a good short song. The guitar and vocals are both impressive and obvious high points of the song. Another good example of the impressive time signatures.

It's A Good Thing You're Loyal: 5/5 - Took me a while to get into this song, but its so great. Once again, I mention the time signatures. The best part of this song is how it just sounds so unique even without an excessive amount of attention on the talent of the band.

My Grey Shun: 5/5 - Here it is, the shining trophy of this album. I absolutely love this song so much more than all the others. The vocals are amazing, the guitars are great, and the time signatures are ridiculously hard to pull off, and yet drummer Mark Haines still takes all the attention here. He just plays so unimaginably well and makes it seem as if the song wasn't even in a different time signature.

Three Week Break: 5/5 - A perfect way to finish this album. Once again showing a different side of ITO, this song gets very heavy with fast guitars and impressive double bass drums. The vocals hit a nice high range, and at the very end, the first and only screams of the album come in, and they complement the song so well, the song is just epic from start to finish.

2nd review!!!

Amazing vocals, killer guitar, banging drumms! What more could you ask for!? These guys are amazing with their dark lyrics and slashing instruments! buy this cd you will never regret it! My favs are Esophagus and Disposable company makes for a lonely man! All the songs are great so click the *buy album* button and take your ears on an adventure! haha :D

Well done I say...and live with their new guitarist they are amazing!

Really enjoyed the album can't wait for the next.
