High Energy, Melodic Rock

Notes

This CD is one fantastic work of mature sound and song craft.

The last couple of years have been just plain rough in our nation and in our world. Everyone has gone through, in small and large ways, personal and professional struggles. These struggles have hit the band as well and the CD is the better for it. The struggles we go through either bring us down or cause us to reflect on where we have been and where we are going. Who are we? What do we really need to live? Why is this happening? This is an introspective work that examines the effects of these struggles.

This is the most unified work 24E has done. This is truly an 'album' and it has an extremely cohesive feel. The album starts out with the instrumental “Troubled Sky” that starts slow but builds into a crescendo of rock and roll goodness. This leads into the next track “Always in My Head” which continues and expands on the theme. This is a standout track that has a bit of a Smashing Pumpkins feel. “Destroy Me” is one of the tracks that can be put on repeat. The hook on the song is very subtle and grabs you as it sinks in. "The Museum" has a melancholy feel that includes some nice keyboard work. In fact, many of the tracks have more keyboards than previous 24E CDs. “Don’t Say Goodnight” grabs you right away and includes a great guest vocal appearance by the very talented Romulo Costa. The CD ends with “He Said Love” which has some intriguing lyrics that are best left for you to discover their meaning on your own. All the songs are great, there are no filler tracks on the CD, the song order is fantastic and it feels like a lot of care and thought went into the production.

For those 24E fans that have been waiting a long time for a follow up to their critically acclaimed “From Stagger to Wind” the wait will be well worth it. This is 24E’s best work to date. For those new to 24E some comparisons to Coldplay, Train and U2 may be appropriate. But there is no question 24E has a style all their own. This CD is a great place to begin your experience with 24E music.
