Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

ONWARD, SOLDIERS

Monsters

2012-01-30

Monsters is the second release from North Carolina quartet, Onward, Soldiers. Featuring catchy melodies and well-executed production, Monsters offers either rock or country, depending on which song you listen to. The album starts out strong with the catchy, “whoa-whoa’s” of “Telling Nobody”. “Nighttime Sky” is also a winner with its toms, trumpets, and strings. The liner notes suggest the upbeat, though unremarkable third track “Cinder Blocks” as a featured song. The rest of Monsters, with the exception of the great title track, takes a decidedly country turn with the inclusion of organ and pedal-steel. Rebecca Ruth
