Most bands that are determined, and in most cases talented enough to get signed to a record label, usually possess the chops, intelligence and the right people to make a nice sounding CD with a good looking jacket and liner notes. Let us not forget the matchless “hidden track” (which is usually #13) that they’ll often give you as a consolation for the shitty songs that should be buried like those Almond Rocha looking treats that lie in your kitty’s litterbox –the stinkers that your dog may dig up for his little scooby snack.

The Autumn Effect is a record with a mixture of good musicianship, thought provoking lyrics and it is a very well produced offering. It does, however, lack the soul or vital hook for this listener to review the disc and want to tell a friend about it. 10 Years’ sound is somewhat like that of an anemic Tool, with vocals that sound very much like those of Nonpoint’s singer, Elias Soriano. (note: anemic tools aren’t that hard. cymbal crashes)

A stand out track on the disc is “Half Life”, but after several listens my overall evaluation of The Autumn Effect sticks. The record is weak. Talent is within this band, but they couldn’t put it all together for this release.

You, Pure Rock listener, needn’t take a bite out of the same turd twice.

* * (out of a possible 5 stars)
