By We Are The Ocean
Kicking off with full force into the album opener 'Trouble is temporary, Time is tonic,' we are the ocean's 'Go Now and Live' is a brilliantly constructed album, which also encapsulates the band's explosive stage presence.
Current single 'The Waiting Room' is doing the rounds on most music stations, and is a catchy rock anthem, which will be in many heads this festival season, as the band are on most line ups, such as Leeds Festival, and it seems the band are touring non-stop on the back of the album, and have more tours lined up for the end of the year.
Seeing the band live at Slam Dunk, and then hearing the recorded album, it is easy to see why WATO are becoming one of the best bands in the rock world, as the atmosphere they create is electric.
The strong vocals of Dan Brown mixed with the harmonious singing of Liam Cromby give 'Go Now And Live' a strong and powerful sound, which heightens the album's atmospheric live feel.
From their previous effort 'Cutting Teeth,' it is easy to hear the band have progressed immensely with 'Go Now And Live.' The album is more emotional in the lyrics, yet very much stronger musically.
'Go Now And Live' is a great rock album and is the album which will get We Are The Ocean known and have people rocking along with them. This album is a must for a rock fan to add to their ipod for summer 2011.
