iForward, Russia!- Give Me A Wall: Review

Tuesday, October 10, 2006

I once had a debate with a friend who claimed numbers made more sense than words, judging by the track titles on iForward Russia!’s debut Give Me A Wall, they’d probably agree with him. I’m still not convinced, just confused as hell. I’m also not convinced iForward Russia!’s got the formula right here either.
Obvious comparisons can instantly be drawn to Bloc Party. The hooks, loops and intensity that made Bloc Party such sensations have been regurgitated, add in hardcore guitar riffs, thicker bass lines and 80’s glam vocals and it all changes quite drastically. With the exception of track 5 ‘Nineteen’, containing a synth line reminiscent of CSS’s ‘Let’s Make Love and Listen to Death From Above’ and track 6 ‘Seventeen’ which peels back the heavy guitars to slip into something psychedelic, the album comes off sounding repetitive and boring.
