Short and sweet, TTV as they are popularly abbreviated by their fan is a female fronted somewhat metal band from the Philadelphia area. Bringing an emo type message of how abused and horrible life has been for her, lead singer Heather Thompson flexes her vocal ability in front of a very ordinary band that is playing very ordinary music that will have you losing interest after just a couple of songs.
For the most part you get glorified pop music with an occasional foray into the use of the electric guitar as a lead instrument. "The Ledge" kicks off the disc in a heady heavy metal style but it is a flash in the pan as they digress quickly. Most of the remainder of the disc is filled with the angst and feel sorry for me melancholy lyrics and the music to coincide with it. Lots of electronics with a most annoying habit of adding machine like noises throughout the disc are the norm. It is too bad as Heather does have the pipes to do rock and roll but she is just not given the opportunity enough.
This re-release from Metal Mind Productions of the 2001 debut full length disc by the band does nothing to make me want to investigate the band further. It might have some appeal to the goth "I am in pain" crowd but it really is a very average offering.
