Funeral for a Friend
Escape Artists Never Die
‘Escape Artists Never Die’ is better on the second listen as first impressions leave a distinctly sickly sweet and mushy sense. It is so damn catchy though – how did they manage to write such a good song? Sense of timing is impeccable on it with hooks sharper than a chef’s knife. However, ‘You Want Romance?’ is better with their inclination towards screamo coming through although the song does sound like Jetplane Landing at times. ’10 Scene Points to the Winner’ shows some of the band’s love of Iron Maiden with metal riffs galore and even some thrash.
