3 Pound Universe-ENTO
227 Quail St., Albany, NY 12203
One of the best bands to come out of November's Philadelphia Music Conference, New York's 3 Pound Universe hits the mark with this release. Chock full of driving guitars, it alternates between pounding emotion and beautifully melodic Seattle-sounding rock. Although relying a bit too much on an Alice in Chains sound, the combination of rich vocals and tight musicianship make up for this pitfall that besets too many bands. The result is 13 songs of dark intensity and powerful, heavy guitar rock. "In Mind" is musically and lyrically masterful.
