View From An Airplane - All the Right Words EP
Record Label: None
Release Date: November 24, 2009
Needless to say, the Northeastern pop-rock scene is thriving. From underground acts (The Call Out) and fresh-faced Hopeless-signees (We Are the In Crowd) to pop mega-stars (Boys Like Girls), there seems to be amazing acts experiencing success at every stage. Coming out of this scene is View From An Airplane. With an EP produced by the likes of Ace Enders (The Early November) and Matt Malpass (Copeland, Lydia, Manchester Orchestra), and a catchy pop sound, View From An Airplane’s All the Right Words EP is a sugary treat that still has enough quirks in its production to give the effort something of an indie charm.
With only five tracks, there is not a single low point on All The Right Words. Each song is great enough to stand on its own. However, “The Ghost” and “The Empire State” are both the best tracks on the effort, and are destined for greatness. “The Ghost” absolutely soars with its layered vocals, energy, and lush instrumentation, while “The Empire State” is anchored by amazing drumming, an explosive chorus, and a great demonstration of vocal range.
This is an absolutely solid effort from View From An Airplane. The only potential complaint would be that View From An Airplane does not push the envelope musically. However, since it is clear that All The Right Words is meant to be a fun, summery pop-rock experience, such a complaint will probably only come from the most jaded music fan. I hope View From An Airplane follows up on the momentum created by this EP, because if they continue to craft solid songs, they will reach such heights that the ground will look like the view from an airplane.
