Twin Atlantic ~ Great Divide (released August 19th 2014) [Alt Rock]

This album is the 3rd full album released by Scottish rockers, Twin Atlantic.
The band is known for their anthemic, urgent post-punk style with a good dose of alt-rock influences. Their previous album "Free" had honed 
that style down to a T with great tracks such as "Dreamember" and their title track.

This record is a bit of a deviation from that particular sound.
It's a bit more (for lack of a better term) "mainstream". It features a more subdued pacing, with more slow tracks and anthemic build up tracks. The hard rocking songs a still present, they just take a little bit to get going.

The single "Heart and Soul" is one of the highlights of the record. It's a very powerful, punchy tune with an uplifting chorus that's sure to be a great song to sing along to live. The other single "I am an Animal" is a bit wilder, but seems to be written solely for hit material, as it is quite repetitive and the lyrics aren't as meaningful as some other tracks.

Some non-hit highlights for me were: "Fall into the Party", "Brothers and Sisters", "Hold on", and the closer "Why won't we change?".
The album's aforementioned slower tracks are good, but can get lost in the mix as they tend to blend together.

While production-wise the album is good, I think that the band still has to work a little harder to perfect the sound they are trying to get to. Something along the lines of their first record (with it's aggressiveness) combined with the anthemic style of their sophomore record would be incredible. This record comes close, just gets a little bogged down by it's slower tracks.

The album finishes very strong though, and it's easy to listen to on repeat.
I'd give it a strong 6 to a medium 7 out of ten.

This record wasn't bad by any means, just compared to what they made in the past it could have been much better. It has the potential to really grow on me however.

Give it a listen!

My name is Caleb Hilston
Age 19
Height 5' 6-ish"

I'm an artist, I prefer to draw with pencils but occasionally I will do it digitally, usually if it's for something quick.

I am very slow in my art though, it takes me forever to complete something if it's not for a contest or something.

I am also a musician, I play bass guitar, and I dabble in piano. I'm an amateur bassist, as I can't play much yet. :P Still working on the simpler stuff.

And I'm also a voice actor. I like doing voices for characters that either goofy, tough, or just plain evil. I have trouble voicing good guys. :roll:

Feel free to click the watch button if you enjoy my art. I do take requests, but because of my pace I cannot take more than 5. Message me about requests and I'll tell you if I'm up to it, or if I can fit one in. ;)

Fell is my OC. He is a separate being from me. So do not get the idea that I am a furry, because I'm not.

That's all!
