Twothirtyeight

Regulate The Chemicals

Takehold

Emo, indie rock, whatever you want to call it, Twothirtyeight set forth the things that matter as a band and leave out the rest. Simple lyrics and layered harmonic guitars are the potion of the nine serene, yet disturbing songs on Regulate The Chemicals. Each song on the album gets a little bit deeper, and by the end of the album, you are burdened by the honest lyrics and the sincerity of each song. Everything just comes together, and that is why I found this album so good.
