Spinning The Earth In Reverse
 
Spinning The Earth In Reverse Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $12.00
Artist: The Turnback
 
 
Quantity:
 
“The Turnback deliver a power/pop gem.  Music like this keeps hope alive for modern musicians and fans everywhere” – TuneGroover.com  “Swinging, grooving and bursting with courage and enthusiasm” – SomethingElseReviews.com  These are just a few examples of the excellent reviews The Turnback received for their first two albums, 2011’s “Drawn In Chalk” and 2015’s “Are We There Yet?”   Now, here in 2018, the band delivers their Kool Kat Musik label debut – “Spinning The Earth In Reverse”, their most diverse collection of songs to date.  From the revved-up, harmony drenched burst of rock and roll that is the album opener, “Here I Am”, to the grunge-like riff that kicks off “This Could Be Our Year”, which then transitions to an impossibly catchy chorus, the band manages to integrate new sounds into their music without forgetting their power pop roots.  A booming industrial beat supports the shifting dynamics and weighty subject matter in “She Had A Name”, yet the song – featuring a blend of acoustic and electric instruments - retains its melodic heart and focus.  The mix of orchestral and traditional rock instruments, together with their trademark vocal harmonies, make “What’s The Difference Anyway” an unexpected treat – at once epic, yet still intimate.  Taking cues from the artists of the 60’s and 70’s, songs such as “”Hit And Run”, “Stand For Something (or go sit down)”, “Your Fragile Wall”, “You Wear The Truth Like A Disguise” and “Age Of Dumm”, touch on the turmoil and trepidation of everyday life.  This a modern rock/power pop album that looks to the past as well as towards the future and does so with heart, melody, harmony, and humor.  “Their ‘Are We There Yet?’ was arguably the best power pop album of 2015. If Todd Giglio and The Turnback fell victim to a slump of sorts with its followup, it would have been understandable. Fortunately, ‘Spinning….’ packs the same punch as its predecessor. The production sounds slightly more polished than before but the sound is HUGE and the hooks are plentiful. If you’re looking for politically charged songs that’ll rip your face off, this is your kind of album.  Opener ‘Here I Am’ has all the traits that made their last LP so good. A start to finish hook with killer harmonies, it’s the logical choice for a single. The muscular guitar in ‘This Could Be Our Year’ makes it an instant Turnback classic. ‘She Walks on Gold’ is not unlike a lit fuse. The piano intro starts things off harmlessly enough and then…bang! The appropriately named ‘Hit and Run’ is irresistible, too. It had me hooked from the moment of impact. The Turnback have that unique knack of combining kick-ass with catchy. Call it hooks with chutzpah.” – PowerPopNews.com   GREAT!!
