KIDS IN GLASS HOUSES- DIRT: PUNKTASTIC ALBUM OF THE YEAR CONTENDER

Posted on March 3, 2010

‘Dirt’ is an absolute monster of an album. It sounds huge. Pretty much every single song is a potential single. Aled has never sounded better, hitting notes that most vocalists could only dream of. Singles ‘Matters At All’ and ‘Young Blood’ are huge, huge hits, while ‘Hunt The Haunted’, which was given away as a free download, has become one of my favourite KIGH songs. While the band do their patented pop-rock thing really well, it’s the variety that makes this album so damn good. Opener ‘Artbreaker I’ sounds like Lostprophets with energy and exuberance in abundance, while ‘Lilli Rose’ and ‘The Morning Afterlife’ are slower and more considered, without falling into ballad territory. Tell the truth I prefer the band when they’re a bit quicker, but you cannot deny the album as a whole works better with a quick chance to catch your breath….

So say PUNKTASTIC of forthcoming album Dirt from KIDS IN GLASS HOUSES, which is due in stores on March 19th.
