Woke Up Falling
Woke Up Falling (Post 436 Records)

By: Alex Steininger

Playing well with emo bands, but including a lot of missing elements from your average emo band, Portland, Oregon's Woke Up Falling delivers the much anticipated follow-up to their debut, Dividing Blue From Blue (M-Theory Records) with their new self-titled full-length. It is a hard-hitting, melodic burst of aggressive guitars, thundering rhythms, and stark vocals that scream ripe with emotion. This is what emo should have been, and could have been, a raw, open sore exposed to the world, scratched and scratched at, refusing to allow a scab to form, without hurting or feeling out of place. This is rock 'n' roll with beauty, a sophisticated, stripped to the basics offering of guitars, drums, and bass fronted by a voice that demands to be heard. I'll give it a B+.
