8/10 Amelie de Large Customer review,
The debut from Grammatics is a very good start. With many songs of the album previously released in singles (A and B sides), there was no surprise about how it would sound, with the extra credit being given to its excellent production.The album is a mix of creative pop/rock (including ballads, powerful guitar riffs or a mix of the two in the same song) which doesn't resemble a bit its contemporaries. It is of course possible to catch influences, as in the track Relentless Four, which changes into almost a Muse song; but Owen Brinley's distinctive and tuned voice clears any confusion.The two first tracks of the album have all the elements the band brings to the table: pop/rock melodies full of riffs and cello to singalong. Mid-tracks Murderer, Cruel tricks of the light and Polar Swelling do not let the listener down with pleasant and tight compositions. Highlight for the powerful ballad Broken Wing, the energetic riffs of Rosa Flood and the closing track Swan song, with its original structure mixing different tempos.The album might not be as homogeneous as one would expect but that is also what debuts are about: to show what bands are and what they can do. Grammatics are a band formed by talented and inspired people, which can already do very well in their small underground world. Hopefully their debut will take them to broader audiences, the album sounds like they are already prepared for that.
