Action Reaction - 3 Is The Magic Number Review

by Jeff K.

.
Expect one thing from the new Action Reaction cd-good music. Don't expect one thing from Jason Gleason's new project-a Further Seems Forever release. This band is so diametrically opposed to Gleason's work on FSF's "How To Start A Fire", it's hard to believe that is the same vocalist. Once the opening track "Sinner's Algebra" kicks off though, it's obvious that Gleason's spotless vocals are the same that graced that sophomore release from his former band.

Jason Gleason has very possibly the strongest, cleanest, best voice in indie music today. He, along with wife Bella, and ex-Element 101 member Sal Ciaravino, churn out a release of indie-laced, slightly techno, slightly danceable rock that fits well with Gleason's vocals.

The music here is stripped down, yet not simple. The songs are layered, for sure, but not so much so that they are 'too' busy. Listening to the album, it is easy to hear how well these songs can be pulled off in a live setting.

Only those fans of Gleason who are too 'scene' to like anything but their latest emo releases will enjoy this album, but hopefully that will include quite a few fans, as this is an album that deserves recognition. It definitely helps that the band was picked up by Equal Vision Records, a label that houses some of the best underground and indie music around.
