"So so" full-circle single

I'm an enormous Shiny Toy Guns fan. More specifically, I'm an enormous Carah Faye Shiny Toy Guns fan; the chemistry and vocally mated sound are dynamite. This is a decent effort by the band, having re-established their original line-up. That said, I feel it falls quite short of the quality found on their freshman album. I'm not expecting to hear complete replications of their We Are Pilots tracks, and I like the idea that their music may be evolving, but what Waiting Alone seems to be missing is the complexity of so many of those old tracks. It's as if they've regressed to some degree. Waiting Alone is very repetitive - very ostinato - but to an extent that one is left wondering, "When will I hear the dynamic character that STG nailed on virtually every track of their first album?" In a word, monotonous. I was left waiting for a surprise...until this track ended. Sounds like a very long chorus with no verses or bridges. All that said, there were hints of things to come. I just hope they find the mojo that served them so well. Glad to hear them back together again! I have to admit, too, that i like the new Human League like vibe of the vocals between Carah Faye and Chad. Nice match...

Shiny Toy Guns are BACK!

Let me be the first to say, welcome back STG. It's been awhile, but it's so great to have your original sound back! I'm talking a perfect mix of "We Are Pilots" versions 1,2, and 3! <3

Welcome Back Carah!

Excellent return to the bands original sound. Waiting a long time for new music with Carah and this proves to be well worth the wait!!

Although formed in sunny California during the early 2000s, Shiny Toy Guns' music flaunts a sleek, '80s-influenced combination of synth-pop and electro-clash. Founded in 2001 by bassist/keyboardist Jeremy Dawson and guitarist/vocalist Gregori Chad Petree -- both natives of central Oklahoma -- the band's lineup was fully realized with the addition of vocalist Carah Faye Charnow (who was brought aboard in 2004 to replace the departing Ursula Vari) and drummer Mikey Martin. After building a local following...
