A synth-driven rock band isn't something that you hear from everyday, but that's exactly what you're going to get when you pop in Frequency from Satellites & Sirens. This is the sophomore release from the band hailing from Nashville, TN and their rock eletronica music sounds nothing like what one might expect out of a band from the city known mostly for blues and country tunes.
The album opens with "Run Away" and "Frequency;" both are exactly what you would expect from synth electronic pop driven rock music. Both songs highlight that rather unique sound, but fail to deliver anything too deep when it comes to the lyrical content. Some of the following songs will carry a movement in pace musically (both faster and slower), while other tracks have more weight in terms of content, touching on subjects like brokenness and our wonderful Savior. However, for the most part, it's difficult to tell one song from the next as there aren't many striking differences musically from track to track. Each song carries the same flow and structure, and there really are no standout listings on the album.
Overall, many people will enjoy the music because of its diversity in blending pop/rock with that mentioned electronica sound. However, with the lack of depth on many of the tracks (even though the focus is mostly positive and Christ-centered) some will be left wanting more. It won't be an album to change the face of pop music and you probably won't be missing out if you skip out on buying it, but if you enjoy a touch of uniqueness in your radioplay tunes, then you'll likely enjoy this synth infused album.- Review date: 11/20/11, written by Kevin Hoskins of Jesusfreakhideout.com
