Aconite Thrill

Album Title: Recliner
Release Date: August 30, 2004
Genre: Punk
As courageous and seminal as they may be, bands practicing the art of post-hardcore genre-bending wizardry take a big risk of just sounding a bit pap. On 'Recliner', five-piece Aconite Thrill veers between success and failure, but ultimately steer their way to genuine achievement. Anyone who has seen the band live would expect that dancing, and often singing, along to these songs is a challenge, and they'd be right. The style of Will Jeffree singing a seemingly different song to what his cohorts are actually playing works well, and at points is even bizarrely catchy. Acoustic number 'V.I.B.G.Y.O.R' exploits the dramatics of the frontman's regionalized style brilliantly, while 'Caspian Sea Holiday' and 'B-Movie Explosion' rock with a superb lack of direction as you try and fail miserably to sing along in time. It's bold, and for the most part it's beautiful. Heroic stuff.
