Crime In Stereo have come a long way... For a band that cut their teeth playing lightning-paced Long Island hardcore, Crime In Stereo have come a long way. There’s still a throbbing hardcore vein running through this album’s spine, but songs like ‘Drugwolf’ and ‘Type One’ have a much bigger, almost stadium-like atmosphere about them. It’s a gentle beast of a record and one that’s both physically and emotionally exhausting.
Evolving from very undeveloped and unorganized beginnings, Crime In Stereo have established themselves as insightful songwriters and musicians. 2005’s Is Dead was nothing short of an evolution for the group as there was a powerful focus on appealing and diverse arrangements. This resulted in beautiful developed tracks such as “Small Skeletal” and “Animal Pharm” which perfectly expressed the quality of music the band can distribute.
