"Somewhere In The Between" is the third studio album by the ska-punk and third wave ska band Streetlight Manifesto. Although many fans consider it to be their second album of original material as "Keasbey Nights" released in 2006, was just a re-recording of Catch 22's album of the same name.
"Somewhere In The Between" then, released in 2007, is long awaited second album of original material since 2003's "Everything Goes Numb". Tomas Kalnoky an co. return with raspy vocals, fast paced songs, catchy horn lines and clever songs.
Whilst the bands ethic to writing well put together, inventive songs hasn't changed, a number of things have. Kalnoky's vocals have improved; notable on "Down, Down, Dow To Mephisto's Cafe". Numerous line-up changes and robberies (yes, robberies) have lead to a different sounding horn section. Nonetheless the horn lines are still as catchy and complex as on "Everything...". Similarly the talent is evident with fast guitar, complex bass lines and drums, and horns that play various melodies that require precise timing.
Kalnoky's signature anthemic lyrics are also present in abundance. As with "Everything..." Streetlight produce an album of top notch songs that could equally be released as singles; an example of Kalnoky's perfectionist approach to song-writing ("We Will Fall Together" was written over a period of about 10 years). However stand out tracks include opener "We Will Fall Together", anthemic "Down, Down, Down To Mephisto's Cafe", "Watch It Crash" and "Forty Days".
Perhaps not as energetic as their debut, but still an album worth buying. You won't regret it!
