On Saturday, I woke up in the morning and guzzled coffee. Once I was good and full of caffeine, I went about tidying the garage, mowing the lawns, listened to some new music, watched cartoons with my son… sorry, am I boring you with my mundane schedule?
Honestly, I can see how the above routine could seem boring, but ultimately it’s far more exciting than the new album from Silversun Pickups, which is about the most boring and uninspired release of anything I’ve heard in about 5 years.
From the opening notes of Neon Wound, right through 9 other songs that run for 48 minutes, Widows Weeds is nothing short of dull.
There is potential for something interesting, particularly in the pretty good voice of singer, Brian Aubert, but every time something peaked my interest, I was let down.
The title track has a fairly vibrant opening, but my hopes are dashed again, when it soon settles into another coma inducing snorefest…
I don’t really have anything else to offer for this one, it’s completely bland.
