By Chapter Thirteen
"I don't need your cure for illness, This disease is keeping me from falling", reflects a poignant insight into the continued striving for deserved recognition from Chapter Thirteen. The five-piece have no inclination to compromise their individualistic sound for the sake of a few more fans; sticking with what they do (and they do it well) is clearly the way forward for personal satisfaction. Ignoring the odd bass line here and there, their self-comparison to "the groove of Stone Roses" appears nonsense whilst within the same biog "Bends-era Radiohead" hits the nail on the head. Mix that in with a clear desire to rock - imagine, at times, a less full on Muse - in a recognisable and well-defined quiet/loud order. Other than a band name that is in urgent need of being changed there's not much here to complain about; the well-produced demo CD features strong enough songs to retain interest throughout without tiring on subsequent plays.
