Banquets – Spit at the sun

The album title represents the album quite well, I think, because spitting at the sun seems like kind of a rebellious act, right? And that is just what this album sounds like: rebellious and passionate. However, there are also a few things I don’t like that much about it. For an example the singing/screaming starts to sound a little monotonous after a while. Also, the songs seem to lose a little of their power as they go along. Most of them start really fierce and then droop at the end. So I guess this should be Banquets’ challenge: to keep us entertained to the last second of every freaking song.
