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 One Word Album Review is Frank Iero and The Patience’s (or as the album cover reads Frank Iero and “The Patients”) punky and punchy four-track EP Keep The Coffins Coming. Using only four songs – two previously unreleased and two newly recorded – to serve as the “missing link” between 2014′s Stomachaches and 2016′s Parachutes, Iero’s newest release might just become an instant fan-favorite.
Now, before we turn this too much into our own review, we’re going to pass things over to Iero as he carefully chose four words to describe each one of his Steve Albini-produced tracks. After reading what the former My Chemical Romance guitarist had to say about his new EP, be sure to pick up a copy here before it hits stores this Friday.
