The first track on â€œInto A Soundâ€ is â€œThe Scissor Gameâ€ and it gives The Action Design a rock meets goth type of sound that really brings the band into a Nightwish or an Evanscence sound in my opinion. The second track on the disc is â€œEyes On Meâ€, and aside from being a more pop-influenced track, hints of dance music present themselves just as the Rasputina influence does. The end result is that The Action Design is a catchy act that is quite like a chameleon; each track varies the approach enough that individuals are always left wondering what is next from the band. There are only six tracks on â€œInto A Soundâ€, and six different sounds promptly issue forth from the disc. The best track on â€œInto A Soundâ€ has to be â€œCity Committeeâ€.
While the pop vocals of â€œEyes On Meâ€ stick around, a Pennywise (â€œBro Hymnâ€-type) of bass line is thrown into the mix. This bass line interacts with the pop vocals as well a decidedly more indie-rock approach to make an eclectic track that practically anyone listening in can like. This does not mean that the second half of the disc (with â€œThe Question Is Howâ€, â€œConnect/Disconnectâ€, and â€œLaundry Dayâ€) slacks, but that the second half is a fundamentally different creature than the first. The band oinly hangs onto the EP for a smidge over twenty minutes, but the well-written and catch songs on â€œInto A Soundâ€ will stick with individuals well after the disc stops spinning. The music here would be perfect for a party or other bouncy social situation; buy this EP and make it a point to pick up the bandâ€™s LP whenever they come out with it. Given the right publicity, the scintillating styles of The Action Design will reach millions of interested individuals.
