I think Pierce The Veil has a great kind of music, and sounds quite cool. You'll be hearing the high and sweet voice of Vic Fuentes, cool pop rhythm music and awesome lead stuff, and great drumworks. The first song I heard from them is Currents Convulsive, and I can say that it was terribly cool! Awesome intro, then machinegun drumrolls, back-uped by Vic's sweet voice:"Congratulations!" It was very cool. I wanted to dance when I heard the song, and on the chorus you'll be hearing back-up voices as the vocals whined his hysterically frantic voice. Love it. There was a mini solo that introduced me how great their lead guitarist is. So I decided to upload songs from i-tunes and found out there's more to add to my favorites. I quote some of them, like "Yeah Boy And Doll Face", "The Cheap Bouquet" which was very great and you'll hear lots of lead stuff that sounds so magical, hahah, I just love it. There was also a mini stuff after the song, and it was cute. "Drella" was also awesome. You have to listen to it.
Lyrics — 8
The lyrics? It was very sweet and very relevant to the present, and I remember some of them. The song "Falling a Sleep on the Stranger" was perhaps a love stuff that seemed like love at first sight, and perhaps happened somewhere in a sweet park.(Well, that was my perception..) I love the lyrics and were easily understood, and Vic wonderfully ruined(I mean decorated) the phrases using his lethally amazing voice. Vic is a very great vocalist; he has this great high-pitched voice that sounds sweet.(I dunno how many times I used that word to describe Vic's voice). He's just perfect to the band..
Overall Impression — 9
Pierce The Veil proves that they are no ordinary stuff: excruciatingly high and sweet vocals, funky pop drum stuff, cute lyrics, and wonderfully clean lead riffs and solos that dominate the surface of your sensually endulged ears. All these and even more is what you get from merely listening to the album once. All songs are qute impressive, but there are actually songs that can't help but stand out, like Currents Convulsive, Drella, The Cheap Bouquet, and Yeah Boy And Doll Face. And Wonderless too! I love everything in them, but I hate to say that currently, they only made 14 songs, 11 from the album, another 2 entitled Kissing In Cars (acoustic), and She Makes Dirty Words Sound Pretty(with Johnny Craig, an acoustic too ) and the new and kick-ass revival of Beat It. Oh, I Love Pierce The Veil! You should have the album. You'll end up begging for more.
