The Ease - Awkward Moments 
By coming down

“Nothing in the world could make you feel better than this.” (Twitch) Well I’m not sure about that, but there probably aren’t a whole lot of things that could. When I asked for the review of The Ease’s ‘Awkward Moments’, I expected there to be a whole lot of them, but what I found was a coherent disc chalk full of 13 good pop/rock songs. Large doses of piano and guitar mixed with liberal amounts of grooving beats make this disc a solid listen all the way through.

Luke Sheets has a hard to ignore vocal style that you want to pass off as an Eddie Vedder via Scott Stapp wannabe, but by the third track, ‘Holiday,’  you realize you’ve been deceived, this guy can sing. He’s not ripping anyone off, he’s just singing his ass off. The guitar work isn’t going to raise any eyebrows as being technically sensational, but Sheets certainly has an ear for a nice hook and is adept at finding unique tones and effects to compliment his earthy, organic songwriting.

Songs such as ‘Twitch’ and ‘What You Wanted’ are extremely bass driven and have a fantastic throbbing tone that gives them a violent undercurrent rarely heard in today’s music scene which is so diluted with passive emotion and shrink-wrapped feelings.

There’s a nice mix of mellow, acoustic/piano driven songs and hard-edged rock songs that keep ‘Awkward Moments’ from developing any sort of lull. This is definitely one disc that is worth the price of admission.
