From the fertile musical soil of Albany, Oregon comes the next rock band, A Dream Too Late. Following in the footsteps of their Oregon predecessors (Falling Up, The Send), A Dream Too Late blends melodic vocals with dynamic rock attitude and intricate programming. Leaping out of the gates with an already impressive tour history (Run Kid Run, The Send, Ruth, Falling Up), A Dream Too Late will hit the road with starry eyes and beautiful new album, â€œIntermission To The Moon."
Over the years Oregonâ€™s Portland/Albany area has served up many compelling bands of interest, but none with the unique blend of positivity and indie rock musicality like that of A Dream Too Late. Forget any Northwest slacker overtones; when considering Tooth & Nailâ€™s newest rockers, think more in terms like adventurous, creative, and empowering. The highly focused band stands out from acclaimed labelmates Falling Up, The Send and Run Kid Run for their particular sense of mission. True to their name, they promote the dreaming of dreams, even as they live out their own.
The album has good blend of Melodic Rock with mixtures of synth rock. I wouldnt say anything amazing on this record as Tooth and Nail is known for many of my rocking albums. This one falls a little short with originality but a good rocker album nonetheless. Most of the synth is very cool, but nothing really grabs me with the overall sound of the record. I listened to it many times trying to pick out the hooks of the album but couldnt find too many. Overall its a good record but I cant honestly say that its anything above other Tooth and Nail artists such as Anberlin, Emery, Ruth or Sullivan, which the band resembles most to me.
