The Most Terrifying Thing are a Liverpool four piece, but don't let that
sway you into believing they can be bracketed in with the tuneful pop
the city is usually associated with. This lot whack up the guitars,
injecting a toughness into their music that's straight from the west coast
- Seattle, in fact.
Things Always Change starts with a promising, ballsy riff but
unfortunately subsides somewhat, plodding on resiliently but losing some of
its appeal along the way, not entirely convincing with the sudden burst of
noise that signals the chorus.
Singer Chris Price has a decent voice though, and the wall of
sound supporting him gives plenty of weight to the heavier moments. The
angst-ridden lyrics, Price proclaiming; "I want it so much it makes me
sick", are a bit tiresome, and the music may need more impetus, but there's
still enough here to deem their forthcoming album worthy of a spin.
