I really had no idea how prophetic my cd reviews actually are. Wait, wait, wait, I’m not as big headed as I sound, let me give you the evidence and you can decide for yourself. This is the first full-length from Kansas City’s indie-rock quartet, The Golden Republic; a few months back their EP, People, came into my possesion and I gave it a decisive listen. In the review I ranted about how it was an amazing EP and I quote, “It is very seldom that you come across a band’s debut EP that is better than half of the full lengths you listen to,” but also that I hoped that their full length would be able to live up to their potential. Well here is the full-length, and much to my dismay, it’s not close to as good. Now, it is not horrible or anything, but the sheer rock energy of those 4 songs is missing here. The only song to make the cut from the EP is #2, and guess what, it’s the best. Their sound is a combination of 60’s pop, glam rock, new wave with a touch of classic rock and grunge, but never really finds its place. Not a bad debut, but if you really want to hear the potential of the band, check out the People EP. Mpardaiolo
