Today I have the pleasure of reviewing The Thomas Confession’s album “Convolutions.” The Thomas Confession is a band out of Fresno California, created in 2008.
The album starts out on a strong and unique sound with the song Love Like Fire. It’s hard to pin their sound to any one genre of music, it’s unique in such a way that it almost forms a genre of it’s own. Each song has a unique sound, yet it’s a consistent uniqueness which is exhibited on their album. Each song is beautifully written on this album, and it flows magnificently.
The first few songs on the album are amazingly energetic. They start the album with an almost “epic” kind of feeling, like something big is about to happen. The way the album starts out relates directly to the band in my opinion. With this album I feel as if they’re on the verge of something here. The uniqueness and energy that the band portrays is hard to come by in music nowadays but these guys just broke the mold.
Following a short instrumental, the album begins to slow down some. The songs build slower than they previously have, yet they still seem to fill the listener with energy, and not just that, but also a sense of awe. The music and lyrics are beautifully written, the listener can easily tell heart and soul were poured into the making of this album.
The album only continues to shine as it progresses towards the end. Songs like When Everyone’s Dancing and My Perfect World keep up the fast-paced energy of the album. Songs like You’re Asking Me and Oh If You Could See slow the album down while still allowing for the band to excel.
Lastly, the album ends with the song Still Standing Alone. This song almost seems to blend together all the different aspects of the album into one song, an amazing end to the album overall. Personally this was my favorite song on the album. It ends the album in the same way that it began with an almost “epic” sort of feeling.
I thoroughly enjoyed the album, and was pleasured to have the chance to review it. If I could suggest any specific area for the band to improve one, it would probably be on the music. Not so much the music itself, but rather that it doesn’t cancel out the vocals. At times the vocals were a bit tough to pick up on outside of the music, and a bit harder for the listener to focus on. Besides that I believe the album was a solid one though.
I believe that the band will go far in their career, they surely deserve it. They are a dedicated group of guys who have made some outstanding music which stands out in the crowd. I look forward to hearing more from the band in the future, hopefully they’ll be playing over the radio airwaves next time I hear them. Who knows how far these could go? My rating: 3.5/5 stars.
