The Fast Track - The Life & Death of the Party
Record Label: None
Release Date: July 29, 2008
Who?

The Fast Track is a relatively new band being that they formed in the middle of 2007. The band is a four-piece and is currently unsigned. A notable thing about the band is that it has no bass player. A little over a year after forming, The Fast Track released their debut EP, The Life & Death of the Party.

How is it?

Let me start by saying I like generic pop-rock as much as the next guy. However, generic pop-rock makes up almost all of this EP. With that said, I still found the album very enjoyable. It starts out with two tracks that sound like a hybrid of Mayday Parade and All Time Low. The third track, "After All" is one of the standout tracks of the album. It starts out slow and then about a third of the way through, opens up into a pop-rock chorus. The fifth, and final track of the EP entitled "Just a Memory" is by far the best track of the album. This is due in large part to the fact that the band strays away from its generic sound. Instead, The Fast Track uses acoustic guitars and singer Jordan Lyga sings the song in a sad tone that really captures the listener. In addition, a female vocalist is added to the mix on a couple occasions. I would definitely recommend this album to anyone who is hurting for another All Time Low or Mayday Parade type album.
