Bluebird - Falling Back To Earth

Label: Dim Mak
Year: 2003

Here's the sound of a band swinging for the fences in an effort to "break through". Pulling out all the stops and going full on Post-Grunge-Alternative-Rock. But we wouldn't talk about it here unless it was good, right (locker room talk)?
I think it's good.
If you followed the trajectory of the band then this record is not much a deviation from the 'Hot Blood' that immediately preceded it, not surprisingly as this ep is essentially a single built around 'Hot Blood' lead-off track "Falling Back To Earth".
If you're in the mood for big rock songs, this one will do the trick.
And if it helps, they recruited Pete Stahl (Scream, Goatsnake, Earthlings?, Wool) and Shelby Cinca (Frodus, Black Sea, Decahedron) to guest on the final track, which is a rollicking punk rave-up that bleeds around the edges.
