The Godshills “March”

This marks my 10th year of reviewing records, and one of the nicest things about doing this for so long is watching bands grow up. It’s also nice to see new releases from acts that I’ve reviewed before. Such is the case with the Godshills, although the “2008” copyright confuses me. Is this record older than the one I reviewed last year? I suppose I could look it up on the Internet. Nah, that’s too much work.
Fans of the Godshills will be pleasantly surprised with this effort. Songs such as “Fate” awaken the conspiracy theorist in me. This band sounds a lot like The Reputation, except, hopefully, the lead singer doesn’t also smoke. The Reputation had an album called “To Force a Fate,” and there was a song on it called “March.”
“The Unclean Spirit” is one of the best tracks on the album. It’s a little slower than the others, but it’s also very heartfelt. There are no distractions, and it reminds me of 120 Minutes or Tami Hart.
There’s not a weak track on this release, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out “True” and “Zoewie” as standouts. This is another quality effort from these Baltimore natives.
