Elliot Millman – Jor El / Box The Sky – A World Upside Down

Crash bang intro of hammering drums and riffs, followed by an intriguingly mixed vocal section, of interchangeable poppy and growly sounds, creating an impression of uncertain direction.  A gentler phase after the mid-section seems to suggest another alternative route.  Collectively, a difficult style to categorise, as it comes across as a song trying to pull in too many different directions at once.  Potential catchiness here and there, but it needs to know where it’s going.  Vocally speaking, a bit too ‘boy band’ for the rock genre.  Promising riff and drum sections in places, but neither one thing nor another.

Overall – Confusing mish-mash of techniques.

3/10 ***
