Here I Am
Many bands come and go with only a single hit that sticks. This band...this album, is proving it's longevity. It is hard to find just a single song to share with a friend. Fickles Lot is very diverse in their songwriting skills... EVERY song has something that you can not ignore. To review to someone that has never heard it themselves: there is a clarity and range to the voacls that only a very few people can attain. Slow and soaring choruses singing thoughful lyrics with good messages. Very clever guitar hooks and solo's that do not abuse your ears over a powerful and catchy rythm. Inviting a sing-along, or a mosh, or a slow dance. As a musician myself I have a critical ear. Fickles Lot is very disciplined in that you do not hear them struggling to have the limelight all the time. Unity. Each insturment works together tonaly, and rythmicaIly toward the common goal of pleasing your soul. I personaly am drawn to the slower songs. There is a certain genuine feeling put into them I can't explain...Listen for youself. I also have a biased opinion. I have seen them LIVE! There is an infectious energy that you can only experience at one of their shows. They make it look so easy. Some bands are recording artists. Some bands are live. Fickles Lot is the whole package!
