Showbread - Human Beings Are Too Shallow To Fall In Love (Cover Artwork)


Human Beings Are Too Shallow To Fall In Love (2001)


This is a band out of Savannah, Georgia that's doing national tours trying to get their music out and make a living. I picked this up at a show they did at my local skate park about a month ago.

These guys played their hearts out when they played, even though it was an outside show, it was freezing cold and it was at night. They all stood around and talked to everybody after the show, and they're really nice guys.

Anyway, on to the album, this is album is one of the best hardcore albums I've heard in a while. This reminds me of the first time I heard "Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence" by Glassjaw (not comparing the music, just the experience of listening to the CD).

For the most part the singer(s) are screaming/yelling/whatever. The 3rd song "Letters To April" is a soft song with yelling background vocals but the other 4 songs on the EP are pure hardcore bliss.

"I Had Music In My Heart, But Now My Heart is Broken" is my new favorite song. This is the opener and what a great way to open a CD. The second song "Better World" is a political song with great, and I mean amazing vocals on it. This song is where the band capitalizes on the fact that there are 6 people in the band, which makes for some great background vocals.

This band is one of my new favorites, with this CD, they're newest CD, and the sampler they gave out getting constant rotation in my stereo.

If you're looking for a comparison to another band/bands, I don't know if I could give you one. Josh Dies and Ivory Mobley have very unique voices and I can't think of a comparison to them.
