American Hi-Fi - Blood & Lemonade Cover

It's been years since we've heard much from American Hi-Fi. Has 'Blood & Lemonade' been worth the wait?

In fifth album ‘Blood & Lemonade’, American Hi-Fi deliver the kind of melodic, moody fare that would be right at home soundtracking a US teen drama. Again. It’s promising in places, with occasional lyrical genius and wailing guitars impressing, but by and large it lacks the balls to really make an impact. The songs meander along pleasantly enough, but it’s crying out for a killer chorus and a chunky riff or two to crank things up a notch. It doesn’t happen. There’s hope in bouncy standout ‘Carry The Sorrow’, but this album is okay, and not much else.
