So Hideous – Laurestine ALBUM REVIEW

Complete cheesefest. Goes for all the obvious chords at the obvious times, tries to maximizes it’s “epic” sound while only succeeding in sounding dull and uninspired. The more I listen to this wave of post-black that’s sweeping the hipster scene of it’s fair trade, hemp shoes, the more I’m getting to think the harder a band tries to be beautiful, the more they fail. That is certainly the case here. Music isn’t a formula, just because you technically hit all the theoretically right buttons, doesn’t mean it’s going to create the right result. And here the only result is a mess of major sevenths and misguided intentions.
