Album Review: Heavy Like A Headache by The Ninth Wave

Very Good, Based on 2 Critics

The Line of Best Fit - 70
Based on rating 7/10

Heavy Like A Headache oscillates sometimes painfully between its two halves. It's split into songs that are euphoric, industrially huge, and upbeat, and songs that are dark, bleakly ominous, and sonically intense. The Ninth Wave handle both sides well, and the sense that both halves of their sound are kind of fighting each other gives the album its emotional core - but it doesn't make for a smooth listen.
