CD Review: Queens Club "Young Giant"

Queens Club is comprised of former members of The Chariot. Upon hearing that you might have a notion of what Queens Club is going to sound like. Well, you're most likely wrong. Queens Club is evidence that individuals musical taste can vary, greatly. Fortunately, Jacob Ryan (drummer) and Dan Eaton (vocals & guitar) have very good taste.

Queens Club is pop and dance music in all of it's glory. Highlights on Young Giant include "Issinair" and "Dust" which is by far my favorite track on the album. The beginning is absolutely beautiful (and for a girl that doesn't really care for techno/dance music, that's saying something). The techno fades away as the song progresses into a more rock/punk sound. One of my favorite songs not only sonically, but lyrically too with lines like - ever since the day I was born I filled the void by crawling in arms, I think he swore to never let me go. And just because you run from the norm, I think he's saying, don't be alarmed. Other songs to check out include "Less Talk" which they recently released a video for. "Upstart" could be the theme song to a television show. It just has that feel to it.

Queens Club's Young Giant demonstrates that these guys want to have fun. I hope that with some time and experience maybe the songs can be more than just fun sounding but also have equal depth and longevity too.

★★★★★★☆☆☆☆
