NYC Smoke
For The Posers (Smoke Recordings)

By: Alex Steininger

Part guitar-rock, some straight-ahead pop-rock, and gritty vocals, NYC Smoke's For The Posers is a well-written album that turns stories of hard knocks and bad luck into listen-able lyrics. All while the almost-radio-friendly (lacking a real push from the production and standout hooks) songs try and get you to sing along, working half the time. It's a decent record that is half way there. The songwriting needs more toning and the songs need a little work, but otherwise it's an album with promise and some strong songs. I'll give it a B-.
