You just have to love Canadian bands. So much of what is popular in America comes from the country just to the north of our own. Thousand Foot Krutch, Downhere… You just have to love it. Now I've had the privilege of being introduced to yet another. Threadline is an independent band, but they shouldn't be for long. Once this band gets down to the states, I wouldn't be surprised to see one of the big labels in Christian rock to pick them right up.
Threadline's debut Undefined sounds like, ironically enough, what a stripped-down Thousand Foot Krutch would sound like. But the real irony here is that TFK is about the closest I can get to "defining" this band. Their sound seems very familiar, but it's hard to put a finger on what exactly it is. It's a somewhat blend of rock, a little bit of punk, and just a tad of contemporary flavor. But, enough with definitions, the point is, it's accessible to anyone. Not too loud, and not too quiet.
With the exception of the touching "1985," the story of a lost mother and it's affect on the surviving son, the lyrics are more of a compliment to the music than anything else. They don't really keep it going, but they don't slow it down by any means.
And to top everything off, the production quality is top-notch. Ah, Canada, you've done it again. Threadline is yet another band to place on a prized shelf. Check these guys out before they become big. Because I can assure you, this band will be big.- Review date: 10/30/03, written by Josh Taylor
