Here we are again, Schneeweis being the only active member of Number One Gun for a second go around- this time, titled To the Secrets and Knowledge, which is technically the band's fourth national release. Not much has changed since we last heard from him on The North Pole Project a year ago. It's still emo-flavored pop/rock; but there is an eternal quality to the way Schneeweis writes music, that harkens back to the glory days of Tooth & Nail, and such acts Further Seems Forever and The Juliana Theory, as well as Jimmy Eat World.
This release finds Schneeweis getting a little creative experimentally, on such tracks as "Noises" and, to some degree, "White Lies." Honestly, these tracks are only slightly successful. Number One Gun shines as a "catch us if you can," emo-driven rock act.
The Secrets and Knowledge is nothing you haven't heard before, but for old school fans of Number One Gun that have followed them since the Floodgate Records days, their fourth release is an emo/rock treat that will take you back to years passed. Just skip that last track.- Review date: 1/23/10, written by Josh Taylor of Jesusfreakhideout.com
