And The Land Of Fake Believe

Well, I didn’t really know what to expect when I popped in “The Land of Fake Believe? from Flicker band Eleventyseven. Boy was I in for a surprise, when the first notes hit and the vocals came in, I was suddenly shifted back to the days of pop punk; Blink 182 style. It’s definitely not my cup of tea, but if you are into that kind of stuff, then you will dig this band. The lyrics are somewhat crafty, weaving in and out of rhyme and leaving the audience to use his/her imagination on whether or not the vocalist is singing about girls or Christ? It’s really up to you to decide. Other than that, there is nothing too special here. They are just 4 to 5 years behind the times with their style. Check out the song “Myspace? (yeah, guess what it’s about) and you will know what I mean. The stand out tracks is are “Here with Me? and “Reach That Far?, which sound nothing like the rest of the album. They are predominately acoustic songs with good non-nasal vocals that would go well with any worship album. I would actually enjoy this album much more if they stuck to this style. So, if you are fan of bands from the late 90’s early 2000’s pop-punk days, then go get this album.
