One Time Angels

Sound of a Restless City (2001)


This band is going to get alot of flak for trying to copy Jawbreaker and maybe they deserve it because they sound an awful lot like Jawbreaker. Personally I could care less if they sound like Jawbreaker because I love Jawbreaker and I love these guys. I'm a fan not a critic, and if I enjoy music I'm not going to stop listening to it because it sounds like someone else.

Now that I got that of my chest how about a review. From the opening distorted feedback of this cd I was hooked, the melody, the gruff vocals singing great lyrics, and just the all together catchiness of this record kept me listening. My favorite songs on this cd are the opening track soul rebel song which starts off the album perfectly leaving you wanting more, see you in spring is a song about marriage with the great lyrics " this isn't about religion, just a choice that feels right. Another great song is Chase the sun which is the first song I ever heard by these guys, it was on the adeline comp. Might as well, Can't Dance. On this cd its acoustic and it still sounds just as great as it did the first time I heard it. Overall this is one of my favorite cds at the moment.

If you are a fan of music like Jawbreaker, Leatherface, Hot Water Music, and Small Brown Bike I urge you to check this out you won't be disappointed
