Bethany Curve returns with their unique guitar centric sound that amazingly emulates the tones and scales of a synthesizer. Although it doesn't sound like it, every single note on this album was written either on a drum kit or a guitar. Yet you would never know it from some of the Ambient harmony and deep drones. This four piece band from Santa Cruz are masterminds of guitar distortion. Whether they use pedals, delays, or flanges, they perform miracles with the six stringed demons of rock and alter them to sound like angelic keyboards. As a result this album is very mellow on the tracks where the drums are used infrequently. The mood almost borders on a catatonic, thereby confusing the band with a depressing Gothic act, which they definitely don't deserve to be compared, no matter how bleak their music can get at times.
