Impressions: Saosin - In Search of Solid Ground
09/02/09 at 11:13 AM by Steve Henderson
Can't really call this "first impressions" since I have been listening to Saosin's In Search of Solid Ground for some time now. I have been hoping it would click after a few listens, but no such luck. The record is just, well...boring.

These guys have gone from being one of the most promising bands in the scene to being an above-average radio-rock group. Sadly seems like the sophomore slump hit Saosin pretty hard.

PS - where the hell is Saosin hiding Alex Rodriguez on this record? Where is the killer drumming from S/T on most of the tracks? Dude has to be the most under-utilized drummer ever on this album.

What did these guys do to draw the ire of what seems like everyone on the site? They did what seemed like the impossible, when their S/T album lived up to the expectations I had for it. It seems like when it came out, some people just hated on it to be contrary, now people talk shit on the band whenever there is a news post.

I understand they take forever between records and can be inconsistent live. But is it just me or do they get WAY more shit than they deserve here?
