Have a MSWHITE Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone! I have a short album review today for MSWHITE’s debut album, “Squares.” If you like the disjointed, yet melodic music of Norma Jean coupled with the drumming and singing of Underoath, then this band is probably right up your alley. On my way to Grandma’s (no joke) today, I decided to spice up my Christmas by listening to this album. To tell the truth, this album in its entirety is nothing too special.  Andrea Arcari needs work on his vocals to make it in a country where screamo is standard. Yes, MSWHITE is from Italy and may be the big thing in underground Italian screamo, but I feel to make it over here, they need to harness their canoli’s a bit more. The album starts off quite uniformly from “A Snake Biting its Tail” to “Young, Brave, Analog” and from there, the potential is rising. The instrumental track “V.I.T.R.I.O.L.” gives the feeling of Underoath’s “Define the Great Line” album. “Primavera” enters the album, giving it  a heavier side to it, and the album finishes strong with “22 Dots, 22 Stripes.” Overall, this album shows that this band has potential in the wide expanse that is screamo/alternative. I give the album 5 out of 10 and look forward to more music from them.

Here’s a little sample from MSWHITE, their single of the album, titled, “I Breathe the Sun.”

My loves in life are horror movies, metal, and science fiction. But that's not all I will be reviewing. I'm going to run the gambit on movies, music, books, and maybe a video game or two. Whatever I can get a hold of, I'm going to review, new and old. You can take my opinions if you want, but in the end, it's what you decide. View all posts by rosstheboss56
