Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

MINUS THE BEAR

Omni

2010-05-03

This is the fourth album from Seattle band, Minus the Bear. Many of the songs here start out with interesting guitar layers ("Excuses" and "The Thief"). Others feature vintage synth sounds ("Into the Mirror" and "Animal Backwards"). They seem promising until the vocals come in and the songs deteriorate into your average synth and guitar radio-ready rock. The single here is the first track, "My Time". It doesn't particularly stand out from the crowd; but then, neither does this entire release. Rebecca Ruth
