JFH Staff's Second Opinion



Though they're not a new band, Nothing Is Broken For Good is Idle Threat's first opportunity to take their sound and message to a new level, thanks to Tooth & Nail Records. The band is a great addition, fitting in perfectly with label mates like Civilian and Tigerwine. The moody post-hardcore is the perfect backdrop for the weighty topics the band covers, including, but not limited to, the brokenness of our world and feeling like nothing is getting better. The band is also not shy about getting heavy musically, with the energetic lead single "Cement" being a perfect example. The meatier riffs and powerful screaming are a real treat, and I'd honestly love to hear them explore that sound a little further in future releases. This is a surprising gem of an EP for me and I hope Idle Threat is around for the long haul. - Review date: 8/19/20, Scott Fryberger of Jesusfreakhideout.com

 

JFH Staff's Additional 2 Cents


    The first song on Nothing Is Broken for Good, “Nothing Lasts Forever,” opens with a simple droning three-note arpeggio. Sublime as it is, this austere and serene sonic landscape offers little clue to that which will ultimately follow. “Empty House” is a perfect case in point: beginning in typical pop/rock fashion before morphing into an all-out instrumental barrage, replete with screamed vocals, before dialing everything back to a lone lingering note. And, therein lies the underlying and undeniable attraction of the album: the way the band darts so seamlessly between softer, meditative passages, melodic pop, hard rock and post-hardcore – all within the course of a single song. The ever-changing tone and rhythms do make Broken something of a difficult listen. Ironically enough, though, they also wind up being the very attributes that render it such an absolutely captivating one as well. - 8/20/20 Bert Gangl
