Do we really need another band like this? That was, of course, a rhetorical question. Odd Project features some talented musicians that play some stale-sounding music. Thatís not to say that I of all people would dismiss a band simply for playing metalcore, as I do still think that bands can do some interesting things with this style of music, and at the very least can give the listener some fun mosh parts.
The record skipped...and the needle cut your lips. But I'll miss you when i'm gone. Your ink filled eyes, they blink and the tears stain your porcelain cheeks. A cinematic smile is kind on the eyes...we rehearse and we rehearse these heartfelt lines (lies)..your lipstick still haunts me. Its ghost on my collar. Red and white they collide.What weíre left with in the end is an accessible release that will probably garner the band more attention than theyíve ever had, but at the same time, itís a disc with very little staying power. This record has its moments (i.e. a nice little solo on the fourth track, "A Perfect Smile And Butterfly WingsĒ), but the good moments donít really outweigh the mediocre ones, and the moments that do stand out arenít enough to make me pop this back in my CD player.
