As a band, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. We united as a team.
The Fill-In’s had one of my favorite albums last year with their debut full length album Hipster Killers. I got it a little late to review it, but it was such an amazing record I had no choice but to make it one of my Top 5 releases of 2014. When I was given the chance to preview and write about their second full length album Fifth Time’s the Charm, I was beyond ecstatic. It looks like they’re going to wind up as one of my favorites of 2015 too.
Closing track “Hear me now” is a catchy uptempo Melodic Heavy Rocker that reminds a lot of THE DONNAS, yet with some awesome guitarwork included as well. So, this mini-CD starts off quite heavy during the first 2 tracks, a bit modern and very groovy Metal based, which isn’t bad either, but the 3 other cuts are definitely more interesting as these are all very strong Melodic Hardrock based tunes.
