POWER OF POP MUSIC ALBUM REVIEW: GREYS – OUTER HEAVEN

ALBUM REVIEW: GREYS – OUTER HEAVEN

By Ebru Yildiz

By Ebru Yildiz

Background
Toronto quartet that somewhat traded off an early reputation as punks/noiseniks on debut EP – Repulsion – into something a bit more expansive than a ‘genre’ stereotype.

Strengths
A solid understanding of dynamics anchors this sophomore effort. With greater attention to detail paid, especially in relation to songwriting and arrangements. Sophisticated textures are developed well with each subsequent track surprising the listener somewhat. Fans of their debut EP will still find enough noise-rock to satisfy though.

Highlights
“Cruelty”, “No Star”, “If It’s All The Same To You”, “Erosion”.

Sounds Like
Metz, Two Inch Astronaut, Shellac.

Bottom Line
Not content to be one-trick ponies, Greys outline their agenda for ultimate widescreen rock domination. Getting there is more than half the fun.
