Dinosaur Pile-Up – Growing Pains

NAME: Dinosaur Pile-Up
ALBUM: Growing Pains
DATE: 4October2010

LABEL: Friends Vs Records


FIVE WORD REVIEW: Intelligent, diverse, a little inconsistent.


LINE UP: Matt Bigland (vocals, guitar) , Harry Johns (vocals, guitar) Mike Shiels (drums)


WHAT’S THE STORY?: Dinosaur Pile-Up’s debut album is certainly diverse. Final track ‘All Around The World’ is unadulterated, grunge. ‘Never That Together’ is a remarkable mix of Everly Brothers style harmonies and Foo Fighter rhythms.
However, a few tracks, like latest single ‘Mona Lisa’, seem to contradict the eclectic influences of the rest of the album. And although these tracks are delivered with the same passion they detract from the quality of some of the other tracks on the album.

SOUNDS LIKE: A self-assured first offering, that sticks to it’s guns in terms of style, but loses a little momentum at times.

YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF: You can appreciate the obviously far reaching range of influences that have inspired the creation of this bold, confident debut.
