MILES ABOVE ‘Move Or Be Moved’ Escape Music ESM111 (2005)

Second album by this young Canadian band (their debut 2003’s ‘Further’ was an enjoyable slice of modern rock) and again Corey MacFayden produces (he of Brighton Rock fame - whatever happened to that great band?).

This album continues the catchy modern rock of the debut album although there are more mid-paced numbers on display like ‘Close My Eyes’ and the blissful ‘Far Away’. For rockier moments try ‘Lights Out’ (not the UFO classic!) and opener ‘Faith Unkind’.

The band do stretch their wings musically especially on the album’s closing track ‘God Help Us’, a track that verges on pomp rock with piano, strings and pipe band all thrown into the musical mix. Easily one of the album’s stand out tracks and proves the band have more talent/breadth than many of the modern rock bands out there.

Another enjoyable album and Miles Above are definitely a band worth keeping an eye on in the future as they still have their classic album to come.

** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
