Machines Album Review


Press play.  That is the best advice I can give to anyone thinking about listening to the new The Young Electric full-length record Machines.  Rooted in the pop/rock movement the tracks on this album stand out far above other offerings in the same vein.  Machines is much more than a few catchy tunes, showcasing their ability to effectively write both upbeat and heavier material.

The transitions throughout the record are smooth and well thought out creating a different experience when listened to strait through rather than as singles, a detail which most bands seem to neglect.

Artists in The Young Electric share influences of The Cure, Thrice, and A Wilhelm Scream, but admit to listening to music from Enya to Kanye West.  The wide-spread influences are apparent as the band produces its very own intoxicating sound.

Strong tracks include the band’s singles “Golden” and “Machines.”  The favorite of mine from Machines is “Like a Chemical” which has found its way directly into my everyday playlist.

This album needs to be heard.  It is a shinning example of pop/rock done right.  I’m giving Machines a 5 out of 5 rating.  Easily the best local release I’ve heard in years.
