What the hell is that new band 4Lyn? Don't tell me please that it's a new trendy EMO band… Ok ok ok, that's one of them god damn and you can trust me they do and play all what I hate! I have nothing against Pop and Rock bands in general really but please help me to say NO to all these horrible EMO bands. NO NO NO!
There is all what I dislike in this album. First the songs are mega commercial and even if at least they are a bit punchy, they're so "trendy", between US Punk and false Gothic, stuff that it's just terrible in the end. Plus the singer has this terrible EMO voice (yes the one that all the EMO singers have) and of course it doesn't help the few good writings of the album. Some ambiances can be ok though but all in all this is too soft and easy to be acceptable for a basic metalhead. Sure I don't have any doubt about the fact that the band will find fans but I don't think that these people will come from the metal scene because I'm sorry to say one more time but this is just two really different worlds!
So ok we have catchy tunes on this release but they're just perfect for radios and 12 years girls who believe that they're gothic. The lyrics which talk about love (as always) are dull as hell and even if I tried to listen to the whole album I didn't find anything good in this release. The only positive point of "Hello" comes from its production which is really good, but the songs, the musicians, the singer are all really average or bad. With all my respect to 4Lyn, I just think that this album is not for me and I will not recommend it to anybody here.
Sorry if you're a fan of 4Lyn, I have nothing against this band really but their last release is just uninteresting as hell. I'm still wondering how this kind of music works today and I'm not even sure that I will understand it one day, but please my metalheads friends, if one day you're in front of a CD of this bands go away as soon as possible, 4Lyn will not be the band which will save the EMO trend…
