Everyday Sunday
Sleeper



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 11 tracks: 46 minutes, 56 seconds
Street Date: 2001


From Ohio, comes Columbus's own Everyday Sunday. A group that has opened for the likes of Earthsuit, Pax 217, Skillet, All Star United, and Plumb; they recently signed a deal with Flicker Records. "Sleeper" is their debut independent release, before all the hype.

"Would You Leave" begins with something seemingly reminiscent to new label mates Phat Chance but doesn't fix the mistakes made by their brethren. "Sleeper" does contrary to what it's name states and awakens me from my musical nightmare. A mellow pop track, this greatly shows lead singer Trey Pearson's vocal resemblance to Dan Haseline of Jars of Clay. "Wait" begins with a friendly guitar part but turns into some Limp Bizkit noise; if you're a fan of Limp Bizkit, where most aren't. "This Time" surprised me greatly with Pearson vocally turning to Bruce Springsteen while lyrically not holding a candle. "Hanging On" is a decent ballad but can't be the shoulder to lean on for the rest of the lackluster second half of the album.

Everyday Sunday seems to be along the lines of a perfect Flicker signee. Think Flicker's own Pillar and Flicker's own Phat Chance and you have Flicker's own Everyday Sunday. The youth group crowd may enjoy this recycled product, but all I see here is a Sleeper.
