Londoners Staring Out The Sun had a huge impact on me with their previous EP "Break the silence", the tracks are Hulk-strong so expectations were high when they announced the release of the new album "Dawn".
And there's no doubt it's a good album but I expected more, you can truly make a great EP out of these 12 tracks.
The song "Lonestar" bring thoughts to Alien Ant Farm which doesn't really suit the sound of SOTS, I prefer them in songs like The river and Hero.
You can't blame 'em for making lengthy songs, some are Ramones-short. Well, well, all good.
If you are new to this band, start with "Dawn" and continue with the EP, that should make a great introduction to SOTS.
Highlights : Hero, Where are we, The river
