A thread not easily broken
Posted May 08, 2010
I was first introduced to The Letter Black via the Tooth and Nail Podcast and was impressed by the Song Hanging on By a thread, which they previewed. When the EP came out I popped it into my CD player, and they say, it knocked my socks off. I thought, these guys have talent. This could be the start of something big.
Boy can I call it. Hanging on By A Thread should be a slam dunk for Best New Artist honors at the doves and grammys next year (not sure how eligibility works out) 13 Songs, 3 Ported from the EP, 10 Originals, most done in TLB's signature dual lead vocal. Styles range from AC(Best of Me, There'll come a day) to hard core thrash (wounded). Shepherding by Skillet and Red won't hurt either.
I'll say it in advance and I think NRT's Bill Lurwick will agree, this is one of the Best Albums of 2010.
