The Ability - Be Still

Posted on Monday, March 08, 2010

A lot of Metalheads and Punks want to throwdown at the mere mention of Emo. I say life’s too short to pose. If it’s quality, I can appreciate it regardless of genre, and if it helps you sleep at night we can call this Indie Rock. The Ability aren’t great, but they’re good. A very mellow approach with big hooks and typical Emo lyrics. Somewhere between Jimmy Eat World and Death Cab For Cutie with more balls, and Taking Back Sunday and Northstar with less pep, you’ll find The Ability’s Pop sensibilities. When it works, it works well, when it doesn’t work it’s just boring, but it’s never terrible. Favorites: “Home and Coffin,” “Elusive,” “So This is Distance,” “Jubilee,” and “Driving on Water.”
