Apparently So Many Ways is a band that just can’t seem to keep their line up together. After having swapped out quite a few band members, each time seemingly resulting in a quick tour and a recording of new material, the process seems to have repeated on their self titled EP.

Clocking in at 20:21 the album pops in with a thirty seven second intro which melts its way into the second track, I’ve Made A Huge Mistake, which reveals the bands formula. Mixing a dose of hardcore with pop punk works on this track which starts off all ferocious then drops into a Simple Plan like chorus that lessens the mood a bit. For me anyway. Fortunately in pops an angry letter to whomever which is mixed with wit and pop culture finesse. “ I hope someone has the grace to let you in/because I know I’ll never let that happen to me again/hellll no!”.

If it wasn’t obvious before its obvious now that So Many Ways is a decent band that is okay with being slotted into a sound that, let’s be honest, has been done before, but the fact that they do it with conviction helps it go down easier. Think Sum 41, Ice Nine Kills, etc. In any case the band tours hard, perseveres when things come undone, and trudges on with conviction. Obviously they’ve built a decent fan base to keep them afloat and with so many kids out there eating this stuff up no doubt the album will find its target audience. For me, I think once I’ve submitted my review I wont go back to it again. When the band finds stable ground who knows.  As always final judgment is yours.
