Oh, Apollo! - 2008 Twin Peaks

Band : Oh, Apollo!
Album : Twin Peaks
Release Year : 2008
Genre : Post-Hardcore | Screamo | Progressive

Tracklist :
Cd-1: Black Mountain

Cd-2: White Mountain
1. Cross Creek
2. Peter Pan

4. Bleach

Truth is, it doesn't seem as though I was missing out on much. Judging by the first track, 'Cass' Clockwork Army', I thought this might be up my street; a few tracks later I realised it wasn't and that I don't really like it at all. Don't get me wrong, there's a few pretty instrumentals in there and a couple of twiddles which are quite enjoyable but it just seems as though they're going through the motions. There's a definite potential there but at the moment this is half-baked screamo at best. Kids really need to start stepping their game up with this screamo business - everything's been done! This sort of thing won't impress me!
