For a band that cut their teeth playing lightning-paced Long Island hardcore, Crime In Stereo have come a long way. There’s still a throbbing hardcore vein running through this album’s spine, but songs like ‘Drugwolf’ and ‘Type One’ have a much bigger, almost stadium-like atmosphere about them. It’s a gentle beast of a record and one that’s both physically and emotionally exhausting. Where 07’s ‘…Is Dead’ hinted at the band experimenting with a more progressive sound, it was nowhere near as cohesive and accomplished as this. ‘I Was Trying To Describe You To Someone’ is a phenomenal album – go out and buy it.
