EB 11 Enjoy The Ride CD Review

All is Fake is a high energy track that ties together hard rock, emotive music, and just enough hardcore chops to make for a track that will resound loudly with listeners long after the cut has stopped. With this goodwill, EB 11 is able to move into System Breakdown. The drum work and sizzling guitar lines that are commonplace during this sound further build on the overall sound of the band while keeping the same ferocity and frenetic energy constant. Enjoy The Ride is a bonafide hit for the band, as the track builds off of the work of act like Jet to create something that is current and contemporary while still having a hint of older influences present. It is this sheer array of styles and approaches that is taken during Enjoy The Ride that will make a fan out of the widest conceivable swath of fans.61WA9C+1wDL._SS280

The slower tempo that the band takes during To Make It Real is a bold shift for EB 11, but the band is able to create something that will burrow itself deep into the minds and hearts of listeners. The track feels like American Idiot-era Green Day mixed with a hint of Alter Bridge. Tie titular track from Enjoy The Ride is a high-water mark for the band, as there is a certain complexity that is fostered that separates this track from the best on the album. Listeners will have to spin the song a number of times before hearing everything that the band has placed into the three-plus minute run time. Make sure to visit the band’s domain for samples of their music and visit their social media for the latest in EB 11 news.
