Under Your Bed

Under Your Bed is one of the best produced albums I've heard from an independent band in a while. Its deliciously driving, with raw guitars playing off one another, bass lines syncing up perfectly with the drums and intense wailing vocals to drive home each song.

Leave the Lights On hits hard from the get-go; a perfect song to get the adrenaline pumping. While tracks like No Compromise give off a real No Doubt (on steroids) feel, the kick drum pulses against Sapp's vocals. The song quickly explodes and you'll agree its a great piece of work.

Quite possibly the tightest sound and most cohesive throughout the album, is American Idle. I haven't been able to shake it from my head in over a day. I'd say they're onto something here.

Overall, Under Your Bed knows how to write. They know how to translate pure rock emotion via song. Under Your Bed is a ride - take advantage of it and spread the word when you do.

Rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
