An Okay Debut
Posted July 22, 2013
Dreamers is an album that features a band that is figuring out who they want to be. When I first heard of Shine Bright Baby, the songs I heard were fun rock ones that I wanted to hear more of. While there are a few rock songs present here (most notably "The Brave Ones" which is probably the heaviest sounding song on the album,) most of the tracks are basic pop rock songs. While that sound may be fine with most people, for me personally, I wanted to hear more of the heavy rock stuff that I heard when I discovered this band.
Dreamers is an okay debut for Shine Bright Baby. It has Christ-centered lyrics and a sense of hard effort put into it, but it suffers a bit from dual identity. One side wants to be a pop-y kind of band while the other side wants to be a more rock-heavy band. I prefer the latter, but there was enough stuff in this album to keep me interested throughout it's rather short length.
