Album number three from The Almost is balanced and impressive...
Recorded completely live and in a just five days, the third album from Florida quartet The Almost is expectedly succint. With a fine balance of delicate melodies, rhythmic guitars and raw emotion, there are plenty of songs with the same atmospheric sounds similar to that of early Taking Back Sunday on offer here, whether it be in the opener ‘Ghost’, the toe-tapping ‘Never Be Like You’, or the ever-so-catchy ‘So What’. Like any album it’s not complete without the odd chilled-out tune, and ‘The Florida Sun’ and ‘Fear Inside Our Bones’ offer some much needed respite. While not entirely memorable, ‘Fear Inside Our Bones’ is an easy-to-listen-to, worthwhile listen.
