Sometimes it's hard not to judge a CD by its cover - the back cover in the case of the Colour's debut long-player. There's a guy who looks eerily similar to Hot Hot Heat's Steve Bays, a dude wearing a hipster hat and bandana and another with an indie rock comb-over. It's all very clichéd, and, unfortunately, the album is, too. This collection of, wait for it, Strokes-meets-Killers-meets-Rolling Stones rock tunes follows all the conventions of a somewhat popular, mid-selling rock 'n' roll album. Despite its lack of surprises or innovation, there are some good, straight-up distortion-fuelled moments, as on Kill The Lights and Black Summer. While Between Earth & Sky is by no means original, it's catchy enough to warrant a few spins.
