@planetmosh reviews The Difference Between by .@mojofuryband out on .@graphiterecords
Following on from 2011’s ‘Visiting Hours Of a Travelling Circus’ Northern Irish indie-rockers Mojo Fury have released the much-anticipated ‘The Difference Between’. This second full-length album is available now on Graphite Records.
Safe in The Arms is a perfect song to open proceedings that is full of promise and builds the expectation that the listener will be getting a sonic rock treat. However promise is a long time coming, as you have to wait to track 5 ‘The Difference Between’ before hearing any real semblance of a rock tune, while everything before and after falls firmly into radio friendly indie territory.
On the whole it is a well crafted and produced record, with tracks like ‘Medusa’ and ‘To Comprehend’ strategically spattered towards the end of the album to keep the listener interested. This album has the musical bones of something that could be really great, it’s just seems a pity they didn’t put some meat on those bones so that it could really stand out from the crowd.
