Amazing Device
The Quiet Room (Tribunal)

By: Mike SOS

Hailing from the suburban area of Baldwin, NY, Amazing Device's latest release is a nine-track album that has breakout potential written all over it. This emotive quartet share many traits with its fellow Long Island musical brethren such as Glassjaw and Taking Back Sunday, as well as current radio darlings and personal friends Lostprophets (whose Ian Watkins lays vocals down on opener "Secret"), from the wide array of styles showcased inside its hybrid rock sound to the pure songwriting prowess and mature arrangements displayed on songs like "My Saving Grace" and "Calamine". Laid back on the surface yet undeniably raging underneath, Amazing Device has the innate ability to captures your attention with blatantly hooky choruses and rich musical interplay during the verses, making this band an aural delight. Adventurous and full of vigor, Amazing Device have the new rock star swagger stamped on every song, and by the time you reach the moody groove of "Air", you'll want to hit repeat on the CD player and recapture The Quiet Room's irrefutable charm.
