Aw yes, the album review: A 300-500 word write-up explaining all the eccentricities pretentious wordsmiths love and hate about a band’s new album. While most reviews tend to hover the line between a positive and negative analysis, we’ve found that some seem to deviate from the pack choosing to spend their time putting an artist down for months of hard work.
We, on the other hand, would rather give the power back to the artist by letting them take a stab at reviewing (or simply explaining) their new music. And in order to make that process as easy (and fun) as possible, we’ve decided to give the artists one word and one word only to describe each song off their new release – thus creating the One Word Album Review.
Featured on today’s OWAR (One Word Album Review; come on, keep up) is Code Orange’s terrifyingly terrific LP Forever. Giving listeners a full-fledged trip into hell and back, the band’s third full-length album should come with its own defibrillator for once you inevitably go into cardiac arrest after digesting the nightmarish track “Forever” or vicious tune “Kill The Creator.”
Now, before we turn this too much into our own review, we’re going to pass things over to drummer/vocalist Jami Morgan as he precisely chose eleven words to describe each of his band’s combative new tracks. After reading what Morgan had to say about Forever, be sure to not only pick up a copy but also grab tickets to see Code Orange out on tour with Youth Code here.
