Relapse Symphony, The: Time's Running Out (EP)

The Relapse Symphony's people are certainly not scrimping on the hyperbole as can be witnessed by the following, "True rock n' roll is about reckless abandonment, wilfully taking chances and going against the grain with a freewheeling spirit and boisterous attitude. Danger, energy and inspiration coalesce with dramatic orchestral structure in The Relapse Symphony, who've blazed a trail of broken hearts and blissful devastation in a short amount of time and equally evokes the glory of rock's most fun era and a postmodern future." This is wildly over the top, practically as over the top as anyting I've ever read before, but when this also appears at the bottom of the press kit; "In other words, The Relapse Symphony is what rock is all about, "one has to think either a) Standby Records don't have ears or b)they're taking the piss.

Despite their power metal name The Relapse Symphony play the kind of power pop purveyed by Bowling for Soup or We Are Kings they don't play it quite as well as the Soup in particular but their brand of what is now called punk is melodic and infectious but in no way dangerous and definitely not what rock is all about. "Make Your Move" is the track which stands out displaying a canny knack with melody and should find an audience with the young alternative people but perhaps the wild claims should be toned down.

Track Listing:
  1. Forgotten
  2. Make Your Move
  3. The Other Side of Town
  4. Burning Bridges
  5. Panic! (Time's Running Out)
