CD Review: The Artist Life – Impossible

Unlike their previous releases, The Artist Life fused their traditional punk ideals with just a drop of pop to created tracks like “Suicide Girl” and title-track “Impossible” for arguably sing-a-long and toe-tapping glory. Other tracks stick closer to the band’s punk roots speaking of traditional working-class themes, specifically the album’s first two tracks, “Working Class Revolt” and “Steel City”. Though this album is a solid release, certain tracks don’t seem as original with heavy Green Day, Blink-182, and generalized pop-punk sounds seeping through. It’s not that these songs aren’t decent, they just seem like filler to the gems that this album beholds. Despite a few lackluster tracks, the album as a whole is a perfect showcase to this band’s talent, and their sound, along with Ian Blackwood’s vocals, have never sounded better thanks to the help of producers Greig Nori (Hedley, Sum 41) and Jesse Colburn (of Closet Monster). Now what are you waiting for? Put this album in your car and start driving.
