Much credit to This Town Needs Guns for at least attempting the road less travelled, even if the musical terrain here can feel flat.
suggests to me that you don't have a clue about the type of sound TTNG are going for, or their musical influences.
That said, I'm yet to give this a proper listen, so not going to argue with the score.
I know exactly what sound TTNG are going for - I've listened to their albums many times. I compare them loosely to one band in this entire review. The other bands are clearly talked about in the context of the narrative, not used as comparisons or described as influences. Cheers.
