Greenley Estates Go West Young Man, Let The Evil Go East
Greenley Estates' third full-length release, Go West Young Man, Let The Evil Go East, is a somewhat tasteful mix of screamo, hardcore and a theatrical atmosphere akin to My Chemical Romance. Sonically, this album focuses on typical elements of the two aforementioned genres and while Greenley Estates do deliver a well-focused album, Go West Young Man feels hollow at times, and can become irritating. Being in tune with your musical style is all well and good but when each song mixes into the next so seamlessly it's just not entertaining. In such an over-populated and watered-down market, being distinctive is what keeps bands like Chiodos and Dance Gavin Dance buoyant and Greenley Estates are sinking in rough water. Vocalist Ryan Zimmerman does all within his vocal range to serve the band's music but his Burt McCracken-esque vocals are just enough to put this release out of reach of being saved, and in the end ties this one to the ocean floor.
