The Early November 

The Mother, The Mechanic and The Path


The Early November
The Mother, The Mechanic and The Path
(Drive-Thru)
A band releasing a three-CD set is a bit ostentatious. Emo-indie rockers The Early November almost pull it off. The band’s weaknesses show, but the writing is fairly solid throughout. The set is a concept of sorts, about a son and his overbearing father. The son grows up and falls into the same trap with his son. It’s pretentious, but the music makes up for it. The first disc, The Mechanic, is more power-pop and indie rock; The Mother is a more country-blues-driven work. The Path is the Pink Floyd record, a “soundtrack” with dialogue and characters interspersed with the music. An experiment worth the single disc price.
