When a band plays with the likes of Too Bad Eugene, Craig's Brother, Slick Shoes, and oh yea, Smashmouth, they always deserve at least one listen. Well, Next In Line, deserves that listen especially with a debut release entitled In Due Time.
"Letting Go" begins the record in catchy punk melodious fashion leading to "Empty Promises," another of the same genre. "Poisoned" adds a new mix to punk with an acoustic guitar but brings the old flavor back in little time while "Sweet 16" pulls the production and harmony to full force with a nice melody. Don't let the title "Dilbert" fool you, it may be about the cartoon character but the lyrics are far from comical whereas "Silent Cry" adds a church choir feel in its intro. I thought I was about to hear Stevie Nicks when "Tonight" began with acoustic guitar and female vocals, but turns out to be a great change of pace as well as a worship-filled awe-striking song. "Heart's Song" ends this CD nicely with a very catchy pop punk highlight.
With a release slated for Summer of 2002, I am definitely looking towards the horizon. This is amazing for a debut release and I can't wait to see the progression these guys have taken. With a tad more melody-filled hooks and another "Heart's Song," in due time, these guys will be at the front of the line.- Review date: 1/21/02, written by Blake Garris
