I’ve been cruising the internet checking reviews of TITEOC. I expected they would probably be mixed and I would probably end up pissed at some elitist who just didn’t get it. I was wrong. I’m sure there must be at least a MEH review out there somewhere, but I didn’t find one. The links I have below aren’t “Cherry” picked (pun intended) either, they’re just the first 8 real reviews listed on Google in order. They’re all positive though there are clearly a few cases of “Did Not Do The Research”. One reviewer states that they only wrote two of the songs (it was eight - check the liner notes) and more than one thinks Julia sings lead on everything and note her vocal versitility (versitile enough to sound like four different people I guess - she’s good guys, but not THAT good).
I’ll never get sick of This The End of Control, everything on it is awesome, all songs! I kinda listen to it everyday haha. Can’t wait to see CB growing and making new songs, getting better and better. Miranda, Nia, Julia and Rena are really talented and I wish the best for them
Got my little sister to tell me what she thought of the album as she listened to it for the first time…
Take This Now - even though it’s only an intro it’s not too bad, it kind of scares me, it reminds me of a song that would play when someone’s about to kill you or something… well i know what i’m talking about.. you probably think i’m retarded.
Better This Way - don’t really like it that much, it’s too hard for my liking. the singing isn’t my fancy either.
Raw Real - i think i’ve heard you playing this song before, i like the chorus, but the verses are retarded. but otherwise it’s alright.
Shake The Ground - not too bad. probably the second best one i’ve listened to so far. best so far is raw real.
Too Many Faces - in the first few seconds i was thinking it sounded like living on a prayer… but now it doesn’t… i like the beat. good song, i like it.
Let It Go - the intro is really good, the beat is really good. it’s just the person singing - it puts me off all the songs. she sounds old. she reminds me of the singer off evanescence a tiny bit. not really. the chorus she sounds alright but the verses are ehh.
Sacrificial Lamb - the title of the song is stupid first of all. it’s alright i guess.
Act The Part - i like it, everything is good.
Drawing A Blank - i like. not as much as act the part. act the part is probably my favourite now.
Heart Is A Hole - very technoish, it’s retarded - nyeeah… don’t like it.
Paper Doll - the guitar is really cool. i like the beat. don’t like her voice.
Hold On - its alright. the lyrics are weird. HOLD ON TO EACH OTHER GOOTTA HOLD ON.. lalalala. don’t like it, don’t hate it - if it came up on shuffle i would probably skip it.
I have to say I’m really disappointed that she doesn’t love the album as much as I do, but then again she doesn’t normally listen to this sort of music so the fact that she enjoys some of the songs is a plus.
