Birmingham, England's Beat Union already have almost all the right ingredients needed to help them make a name for themselves in the US: an already completed tour with reggae stars Bedouin Soundclash and Westbound Train; a spot on this summer's Warped Tour that's gonna take them around the country all summer; full-page ads in magazines like Alternative Press; endorsement from Hurley; and notable producer John Feldmann signing on to help make their debut album shine with a coat of poppy goodness. After seeing Beat Union at the Stone Pony on the aforementioned tour back in January, judging by their live show I really thought the band had the chance to be huge in the states. With big dance beats, a few sing-along "whoa"s and another bass player who just can't seem to keep his feet on the ground for a second, it seemed like they had a formula down pat and were ready to put it into action across the sea. I was really hoping that all the excitement they made on stage would be captured well on their record, Disconnected. But after four months of waiting for it to finally drop, I can say that I'm a little underwhelmed.
