Being and Becoming

The Smashup - Being and Becoming - 2005 - Warcon Enterprises
Beating of your Life talks about a young boys fear of an abusive father and just how he plans to deal with it. Itís only a sample of how angry and angsty this band is, you can feel the rage, believe me. No you wonít find any crying lyrics in this in-your-face bandís songs. I rather liked the Smashup, although admittedly it may take a couple of listens to grasp the feel of the music. Personal high spot of mine was Murder to the Mattress, which is about a womanís choice to have an abortion. Itís as close to a ballad as you will find as they mournfully wish the dead child a safe trip to Heaven. But even that wasnít as emotional as you might expect. I give this at least eight stars, because the lyrics are truthful and honest even in the music is a bit dull and a drone.
