Such a great album. This band really deserves more attention. What I'm wondering the most is if they can actually hold onto Meera for the next album and break that curse of having a different female vocalist for every album that they hsve released so far.

the band got alot of attention with the last album, but lost it when the last female vocalist left. I listened to the other two albums, and i like Meera's voice the most of the three. I hope she stays.

This is at the top of my to-check-out list. I discovered them with On The Run and dug what I heard, then went back to the first album and loved it as well. These guys are stellar songwriters, and I love how they pull from so many off-shoots of rock to get their sound. Also love the fact that I've never picked up a trace of auto-tune in the main guy's voice. That's what gave so many songs from On The Run such a raw, passionate feel to them. This band should definitely be bigger than they are. I hope they get there soon.

When I first came across 1997 on AP’s weekly band listing, I requested their album only because they were a vaguely familiar name and were signed to a label whose artists I respect: Victory Records.
This made me lol

Good review. I prefer the old stuff.

i believe the song is called "Sympathy for the Living" not "Dead." The first album still stands out in my mind as the best of the three but Notes comes close despite some misses. Hope they keep it together long enough to make more music.
