Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

METTA

Metta-mor-phi-ohm

2009-12-07

The first album from this Grand Rapids five-piece is a rock album with the usual suspects of guitar, vocals, drums, keys, and bass. With the addition of guest artists on mandolin, slide guitar, Wurlitzer, Hammond B3, and violin, the bar is raised. Add the Phil Collins-sounding vocals and the we-take-ourselves-oh-so-seriously lyrics, and you have what sounds like mid-eighties Genesis meets mid-nineties emo. I wouldn't be quick to dismiss this band though, when they've matured a bit, they might just be a band worth consideration. Rebecca Ruth
