The Exit

Album Title: Home For An Island
Release Date: October 11, 2005
Genre: Rock
If anything terrible should befall Cedric Bixler-Zavala (heaven forbid), then the Mars Volta will have to look no further than the Exit's Ben Brewer for a suitable replacement. Grating and tinny, but ultimately wonderful, Brewer's voice is but one of the many elements that makes Home For An Island an album worth listening to. The pounding edge of "Don't Push" kicks off the disc, falls into the harmonica-laden acoustics of "Soldier", capped off by the pop-punk of "Already Gone".

Eclectic but not scattered, the New York trio lays claim to two singers who also happen to be songwritersólucky them. All the instruments are pulled tight, and the clean production lends itself to the current pop-centric trend instead of dragging the album through the mud of the early '00s. Not only is the Exit's sophomore effort anything but a "slump", they've also managed to pen lyrics that should be emblazoned across every rockstar-hopeful's t-shirt:

"I left my home for an island / Where rebels fly in on airplanes / I left my girl for a guitar / Now I can play all night long"
