“Beautiful Disorder” by Breaking Point

Artist: Breaking Point
Title: “Beautiful Disorder”
Label: Wind-Up Records
Release Date: 5/17/2005
Genre: Rock
Rating: 7.5/10

The CD “Beautiful Disorder” on Wind-Up Records by Breaking Point is a breath of fresh air to those longing for solid rock and roll amid too much of an absence of this on some of your popular radio stations. These days we are overwhelmed by the likes of Nelly or Usher and Britney Whoevers and this CD allows you a very simple cure. Offering you a wide variety of tracks that are suitable for singing along due to their catchy choruses you get a release that focuses on the themes of romance and relationships. The band seems to have lived this stuff very much in the first person based on the simple yet to the point writing. While the band risks the generic label of Emo because of this subject matter I will stick with Rock when it comes to them. On the CD I have to say that I really found a few favorites very quickly with one of them being “Don’t Let Go”. It’s a fast tempo rocker that you will find yourself bopping to very quickly. There are also a couple of songs that are aimed directly at loved ones such as “All Messed Up” and “Goodbye To You”. I think the last one was very effective as it sings of finally being able to let go of that one you never really had.

“Fantastic Four – The Album” by Various Artists

Artist: Various Artists
Title: “Fantastic Four” – Soundtrack
Label: Wind-Up Records
Release Date: 7/5/2005
Genre: Alternative

I feel as though Wind-Up Records have optioned all the recent crop of super-hero soundtracks outside of Spiderman and l use the release of “Fantastic Four” to cement my statement. I had enjoyed listening to the “Daredevil” and “Elektra” pieces so I expected more of the same when it came to “Fantastic Four”. This piece however would be a half and half of good and bad in my opinion. There are some highlights from outside of the Wind-Up family such as Velvet Revolver and Sum 41. Each of the bands delivering a solid track. Simple Plan however simply ruins the classic Cheap Trick tune “Surrender”. Reviewing the contributions from the Wind-Up roster is the tune by Alter Bridge (the new band formed from the ashes of Creed) as well as another track from Ben Moody (co-founder of Evanescence). This time around Ben has Anastacia with him and this track has some heat to it. Ben has been keeping busy since he left Evanescence and hopefully will have a full release soon.
