If you are a product of the 90s and like the softer side of this era; Grey Weather is your 21st century ticket. Opening up the album with a melodic tune called, “Carbon Copies”, Grey Weather immediately shows their strength as players. Though entering into what I think is the weakest song on the album (the second song), they give the listener the sense that this band has not yet found their sound. With poor arrangements and compositions, this song just never has a real hook to it. Tyler Thompons guitar solo, a little more then half way through the song, is its only saving grace. The cellist, Jen Lockwood is tastefully highlighted in the growing combination of classical instruments and soft rock on “Louise Lane.” This would once give them a unique edge, though common in this genre of music these days. They end as strong as the album started, which shows promise for this new band. With catchy lyrics, solid drum arrangements and tasteful guitar presence, one could easily point out what works for this band and what doesn’t.
