Waxwing
Nobody Can Take What Everybody Owns (Second Nature Recordings)

By: Alex Steininger

Seattle's Waxwing put a spin on mid-90's guitar rock, making it just as loud and combustible, though using more punk than melody to motorize the songs. Buzzing with speed and power, but not afraid to slow things down before launching back into it, Waxwing gives emo-rock a run for its money, creating something as equally powerful and emotive, but firmly planted in guitar rock for its inspiration. The songs don't wear the heart on the outside, and they don't feel the need to jam the emotions down your throat. They just fly by and if you catch on, you do. Otherwise, you still have something to tap your toes to and smile. I'll give this a B.
