Album Review: Echolocation by Gone is Gone

I'll be the first to admit I'm not a big hard rock guy and so perhaps this album just isn't for me. That being said this album feels completely different when listening to it with headphones as compared to just listening to it over the stereo or computer, etc. The headphones experience is much, much better. Not exactly sure why, but I found myself enjoying this album much more as music to walk about to rather than as music to listen to while I work.

The biggest problem I have with this album is that it feels long. The first time I put it on, it dawned on me at one point that it was still going, and it felt like it had been playing for hours.  I think that is in part because there isn't a song that really stands out, and too the band struggles when the songs slow down, like on the song "Colourfade." When the songs are driving this album is much better.

Following the Rhapsody rating method I give the album 1 out of 5 stars for Just OK.
