Brian Fallon “Sleepwalkers” Album Review

Brian Fallon starts off his album, “Sleepwalkers”, with a very swingy song “If Your Prayers Don’t Get To Heaven”. This song sets the tone for the whole album and gives off a slight Motown type rhythm. Brian follows this song with his initial single released off this album, “Forget Me Not”, which is one of my personal favorites off this album. I would recommend this album for anyone who enjoys albums like, The killers, “Sam’s Town”, Vampire Weekend, “Modern Vampires of the City”, or realistically anything from, The Gaslight Anthem. The fourth song on the album entitled, “Etta James”, slows the album down a little bit but makes you wanna grab the closest person and slow dance. From start to finish this album is very well written and you can just feel the emotion in every song, this is the type of album you just throw on and drive until it’s finished. I throughly enjoyed  the musicianship and song writing through this whole album. I don’t think we appreciate Brian Fallon enough as a singer/songwriter. I give this album 4.5 out of 5 pizza slices.

We Were Sharks “Lost Touch” Album Review

We Were Sharks latest album, “Lost Touch”,  is a definite pop punk throw back once you initially listen to this album you get this immediate feeling of New Found Glory and a complete throw back to Drive Thru Records. This album from start to finish flows beautifully and I find myself listening to this album without skipping one song. The album opens up with a heavy hitting ballad, “Beyond Repair”, which was the initial release off this album, which in my opinion was the perfect song to release as a single because it leaves you wanting more. The fifth song on the album is titled,  “Stay”, and to me this song kind of serves as the anthem for the album and was perfectly placed. I had been anticipating this album for months since the release of, “Beyond Repair”, and it absolutely delivered. My only two problems with this album are that it was not long enough and that they release 4 of the songs off the album before the release of the album leaving some of the album less of a surprise. I give this album four out of five pizza slices.
