A classic case of volume over content

A Place To Bury Strangers - 'Worship'

Album Info

  • Release Date: June 11, 2012
  • Label: Dead Oceans
  • Fact: This is the first album on their new label 'Dead Oceans'.
4 / 10 The main guy out of APTBS also makes FX pedals. They’re called stuff like ‘Total Sonic Annihilation’ and make guitars sound like kittens being murdered. He’s good at this. The problem with his band, three albums in, is that they just sound like an excuse to demonstrate his products. We all love a fuzz pedal, but it’s what you play through it that’s important. Were you to strip away the face-melting™ noise from the lazily titled likes of ‘Alone’ and ‘Slide’, you’d swiftly realise that all APTBS do is mask a lack of ideas or something to say by inventing louder volumes than everyone else.
