CD REVIEW 

 

The Artist I recently checked out the latest CD from 4 piece unit My Silent Bravery entitled Are You Prepared. My Silent Bravery who hails from Boston area recently re-invented itself as they used to be called Matt Shwachman Group (MSG).

 

The band Standard 4 piece line-up which includes Shwachman on acoustic guitar & vocals, Andrew Gallagher on guitar, Hugh Allen on bass & Dana Bonardi on drums. I would say the band possesses above average to advanced alternative rock paying abilities. You will find a musical personality that is rich with Industrial - Techo - & rock.  along the way. Timing is spot on within this genera & musical grooves. Shwachman can hold his own on the guitar & vocals, but more importantly Shwachman delivers music that is highly entreating - & somewhat of a warning to mankind. of bad things to come. If Shwachman had a really bad day he might sound allot like Trent reznor. The strongest aspect of the production is the polished crystal clean sound quality & amazing sonic sequencing & sampling. The music possesses Industrial, Electronica, & Alternative Rock stigma. All in all great music to get your head wrapped around. Will remind you of classic Stabbing Westward, NIN, & Queensryche. The songs Simply put - deep music with thought provoking lyrical content. I kept waiting for a weak song to come down the pike - I eventually gave up on that. The vibe Overall very dark, progressive, with amazing stories that possess incredible highs & lows. The CD has its shares of positive & negative moments. Simply put  - very much like life itself this CD personifies life experience, with music that are 100% honest & pure. There is no attempt to sugarcoat the truth. The production is professional grade from start to finish. There's not many songs you can listen to time & time again. Has a crisp & Clean production aftertaste to it. The good Crystal clear recording quality. Solid production value. Entertaining music & solid songs. The bad Song for song, not for note a bit repetitive. I can't tell one song from the next. The ugly Nothing to report.  

 

The verdict Are You Ready by My Silent Bravery has everything: good chops, fancy sampling, entertaining songs, heart felt vocals, & music that covers allot of bases Industrial, techno, Rock, Alternative Rock. to even Pop Rock. All in all re You Ready doesn't have allot of weaknesses. The Bottom Line WARNING - Listening to this music, & studying the deep lyrical content will open you eyes to the dangers of Mankind & his reckless behaviors.
