CD Reviews

DO YOU DARE TO READ MY REVIEW?!?!?

"Roadside Monument is one scary band. You never know what to expect from them; they'll take you one place in a song and then, BOOM! The song has totally changed around. I remember listening to their first album and literally jumped when some guitars blasted out of nowhere. Monument's last album (before the break-up that I have no real info about; sorry) is just like what I described. Every song changes and changes so much that you won't believe your eyes when you look at your CD player and discover you're only on the second track! While my player doesn't have a time-counter-thingie, I'm pretty sure that every song is about five minutes (so don't let that "only eight songs" thing get you down). It's hard to name a favorite track, since every song is more like four songs in one. I do remember an interesting hook in "O.J. Simpson House Auction" (which is a creative title, by the way). While all these different sounds in one track can be fun and interesting, it can also be tiresome if you're in the wrong mood. Listening to this is more like admiring a work of art than simply trying to find a cool beat that millions of other bands are doing these days.While this isn't the masterpiece "Eight Hours Away From Being A Man" was (which I'd give five stars), it is a real example of how creative this band was. More bands should be like this.Before I end this review, I'd like to mention that the vocals sound the best on this album than any of RM's past ones. Good job, guys!"

"The third album from the indie-rock group Roadside Monument has arrived. The first two albums, "Beside this Brief Hexagonal" and "Eight Hours away from being a man" have only introduced what was to come on "I am the day of current taste". By looking at these album titles, and the group name itself, one can easily determine that Roadside Monument is a strange group. Some could say that Roadside Monument is different. But this style of music that is, in fact, different from the mainstream rock, is a great breakthrough for indie standards. Roadside Monument has been known to make nice guitar harmonies, creative but not boastful drums, and a finish that leaves almost everyone that listens to it very satisfied. Roadside Monument's third album, "I am the day of current taste", demonstrates these fundementals well. Tracks like "I am the day..." and "Egos the Size of Cathedrals" show how Roadside monument can make heavy metal patterns and be able to cool down at any given time, and still make it sound smooth. Tracks like "OJ Simpson House Auction" and "Taxiriding as an artform" give off a mellower, more pop-like feel. And "Cops are my best customers" puts all this together, and is, in my opinion, the best track on the album. The one catch about Roadside Monument is: You need to listen to the whole song, because no song on "I am the day..." stays at the same tempo or quite the same melody as it was earlier in the song. Some people might listen to the first part of the song, say "I hate this song" and skip to the next track. But I did this sort of thing at first, and I can tell you that this was a big mistake. Please go pick up "I am the day...", and if you already have, pick up their previous album "Eight Hours away from being a man", which is also a good album with mostly the same fundementals. If you like the material produced by Roadside Monument, spread the word about them to others. Not too many people know this great group, so pass the word on!"
