I THE MIGHTY SAN FRAN ALT.PROGSTERS CEL­E­BRATE 10 YEARS ON AC­CES­SI­BLE FOURTH LP

Kerrang! (UK) - - Reviews -

■ SIM­PLIC­ITY? IT’S not the most renowned of qual­i­ties in the world of post-hard­core. Over their decade of ex­is­tence, and three al­bums, I The Mighty haven’t been an out­fit over­bur­dened with straight­for­ward­ness. Though its 11-word ti­tle would sug­gest oth­er­wise, this lat­est LP makes a break for some­thing ap­proach­ing main­stream ap­peal. At­tach­ing the clean edges and wide hori­zons of con­tem­po­rary prog to the com­pelling beats and syn­thy flour­ishes of pop-rock, tracks like Chaos In Mo­tion and Where The Mind Wants To Go char­ac­terise a record torn be­tween the con­tra­dic­tory worlds of in­no­va­tion and safety.thank­fully, oth­ers, like lead sin­gle Sil­ver Tongues (fea­tur­ing Dance Gavin Dance’s Til­ian Pear­son) and the pound­ing Es­capism, pack just enough prom­ise to see them through. DOWN­LOAD: Sil­ver Tongues. FOR FANS OF: Emarosa, Dayshell. SAM LAW
