GLORY OF THIS


"Adoration" (Indianola; 2004)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

 

Glory of This is a Florida based quintet whose palatable punk rock has a very muscular frame, thanks to the production of Jeremy Staska (Poison the Well). "Adoration" contains ten tracks with hook happy choruses which morph into furious yet melodic hardcore breakdowns. 

Falling somewhere between Finch, Lostprophets, and Thursday (especially on "Flip For It"), tracks like "Uncomfortable Silence" have equal parts savage barking and snarling guitars, which give way to bouncy refrains that will suit both the vitriol filled guys and the swooning young gals. 

Perfect for the Warped Tour (where the outfit actually played this past year), the mixture of bruising melodies and contagious vocal lines found on "Adoration" puts Glory of This in fine company and potentially in the I-pods of teens everywhere.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
