Greeley Estates - Far From The Lies Review

by Mike Rapin

The only way to describe Greeley Estates' album Far From The Lies is to blend the metalcore half of Chiodos with the scream from Fall Of Troy while still keeping that Senses Fail feel to it. And you think "God damn it, I hate this crap." But no, you're wrong because this sh*t is good. Seriously.

The CD compiles some great screams and pseudo-breakdowns and still manages to add a poppy feel on top of it leaving the listener wondering what you're listening to... for the entire CD. But I will admit, the CD stays on the emo-core side of things, yet, just when you expect the CD to start going downhill, a crazy awesome chorus/breakdown combination punches your jaw (via vibrations from your ear of course--try putting a jackhammer in your ear, you'll see what I mean.).

Musical talent-wise, the CD stays on the easier side of things with a few testing riffs here and there so I have to give Greeley Estates some musical "cred" for actually trying--try "Nothing Good Happens" for the breakdown and for the riffs. The majority of the CD is made up of simple powerchords with a happy feel to them. Then again, there are some kick-ass breakdowns and such.

Now, once you get past the first 7 songs, it feels like the band decided to jump from genre to genre every song after. Now, this actually gives the last 5 songs some cool diversity and I have to give it up to a band who can create some kind of diversity (racial, musical, technological, etc.).

Wrapping things up, I have to say Greeley Estates isn't half bad, or even one-third bad, but I would probably suggest this CD to someone who is into bands on Equal Vision or is into bands that are a tad heavier than emo-core.

Track Listing:
1. The End Of All We Know
2. Too Much CSI
3. Life Is A Garden
4. Where Did You Go
5. Nothing Good Happens After Dark
6. Remember
7. Believe The Lies
8. Are You Listening
9. Secret
10. Through Waiting
11. This Moment
12. See Your Scars
