Album Review :: Left of the Dial :: Idly By

Left of the Dial :: Idly By

Left of the Dial’s Idly By is a heavy record. Not like heavy hardcore, but it has a heavy vibe. The music is solid and fast punk rock, yet the tone and cadence of the vocals take on a somber, serious sound. These tracks are emotionally driven yet nowhere near emo. The first track Idly By, is a slower track that sets the mood, yet and Rusting On Your Laurels are gruff yet catchy yet still somber. Most of the other tracks exist in between those two points, each one stronger than the one before it, or maybe this is one of those albums where each track builds on one another. To me, this is such a great winter album, it is one to put on in your car when the nights start to come earlier and earlier.
