Tokyo Trawler Catch of the Day: Colin, USA
Artist: Modern Life is War
Tune: I'm Not Ready
Colin's essential rating: 4/5
Colin's Message to the People: "Hardcore's a family, and we need to realise that"
The Tokyo Trawler’s Essential Review:
"It's not for everyone". In Colin's own, honest words, this tune will never find it's way to karaoke classic status. In spite of* this, there is a certain epic* quality to the opening riff*, which wouldn't be out of place in the action scene of a war film. The building-up of this intro, however, leads us into repetition*, and the unpleasant* feeling that the pleasure* has been in the anticipation* of something great that never came. Undoubtedly* heartfelt* delivery, and a certain depth to the lyrical content are not enough to lift this song's head above the surface of the great pond of American rock mediocrity*.

The Tokyo Trawler's message to the people: Deep, but I ain't gonna be humming it, let alone whistling it in the park anytime soon.
