This band was reviewed purely based on their music, because I had never heard of Speaking in Capitals. I had no expectations or preconceived conceptions of them.
The first track Ė Plastic Brick Ė is my favourite of the three songs. I like the weird idea behind the song, of a man being attached to a plastic brink, I think because it would make life easier, but Iím not sure. It is a great happy song. It is a simple sound Ė guitar, drums and vocals. And once of twice the ting of the triangle. I appreciate a song that you can dance to!
Real Men Are Made of Tin sounds melancholy. I think itís a break up song. It has nice guitar sounds and the strange but pretty line;
Would you love me more if I was made of mirrors, or flowers, or tin?
Disclaimer is another slow, sad track. Instead of dancing, Iím tempted to sway slowly, lazily along with it. Iím not sure what it was about, but I found it a little repetitive, which always annoys me because I think itís lazy song writing.
Iíd like to hear more by Speaking in Capitals. Thatís mainly based on the first track. I found the slow, sad songs to be a bit formulaic, and I felt that the band suffered from a lack of confidence, and the songs could be better if they werenít so afraid to try something new.
