THRESHOLD Critical Energy (Inside Out 08960532) (2004)
One of the better bands I've discovered since starting the Newswire
back in 2002. Big on power chords and strong lyrical themes, coupled
with the superb vocals of Andrew McDermott. This double live CD (and
accompanying live DVD) captures the band on their 'Critical Mass'
Highlights? There are many but try the riffing on 'Phenomenon' -
sheer aural bliss. Andrew McDermott sounds like Thunder's Danny Bowes
on some tracks notably 'Angels' and 'Falling Away'. The second disc
has treats like 'Sunseeker', 'Light and Space' and 'Sunrise On Mars'
to name a few.
An essental live album, with a high quality sound, just wish I'd
seen them on this tour now...
