Five Points - Shades Of Black

Crack Pie   (1908 reviews)

I'm getting kind of bored of trashing all the shit that I have been given to review lately. Five Points from Brooklyn, NY are not helping me solve this problem with their five song EP "Shades Of Black". These guys proudly list similar artists as: Creed, Deftones, Alice In Chains, and Nickelback. I have no idea where they got Deftones from.

This paint by numbers radio rock. The only positive I can point out after a few listens are some similarities to Alice In Chains, but without the raw sound of AIC. The musicians are all pretty talented, even the singer has a decent voice. However, you have heard this all a thousand fucking times by a thousand fucking bands. There are couple of catchy hooks and choruses, but nothing close to a hit. In my opinion if you are writing this kind of shit then you better have a record full of hits. Otherwise you are playing bars with your bros for the rest of your life.

Five Points aren't bad at what they do, but they aren't doing anything good. Writing this review has bummed me out so much. I can't wait for 2012.
