Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

THE INSTRUCTION

Failure By Design

2009-09-17

Hailing from Louisville, Kentucky, this foursome offers morose, sophomoric lyrics set to a well-produced electric guitar and drums background. This adds up to rock that is sometimes interesting (occasionally even a bit reminiscent of Interpol, though nearly not as cool). It does tend to drag, though, before the disc if half finished. Best song here is "Into the Tomorrow". Though "Hello Darlin'" is supposed to be the focus track, I found it to be a dull ballad, even with its catchy chorus. Rebecca Ruth
