My Glorious – Home Is Where The Heart Breaks (CD)

“You Should Be Dancing” is the first single off of the newest album by My Glorious, and it firmly establishes the act as one that is confident and sure of their abilities. There are hints of Nine Inch Nails, Oasis, and even U2 at the periphery. The driving beat established by the splashy drums allows a proper foundation for the spot-on vocals to truly shine, giving the act the proper energy to continue on with “Home Is Where The Heart Breaks”. While one will be blown away by the their 2008 debut, “Leper”, I feel that all aspects of the band have been further ratcheted up for “Home Is Where The Heart Breaks”. Where My Glorious has only been around for the better part of two years, it honestly sounds as if they have been rocking out over five or ten.

“Break My Heart” begins in a fairly Spartan way, with the different parts of the ands entering in soon after. The energy in which My Glorious crafts the tracks on this album is reminiscent of Jet or The White Stripes, but the act is not content to pigeonhole themselves in a specific genre. The thing that is a constant through the tracks on the album is a pop-worthy sound that will bring the band chart success, even as the smart compositions will bring them success in the minds and hearts of critics.

The sound crafted by the band and producer Raphael Spannocchi (Peter Schonbauer)is one that is able to properly idealize the music of those that influenced My Glorious while not becoming beholden to those act – My Glorious is able to put their unique stamp on everything that is featured here. Make sure to pick up a copy of “Home Is Where The Heart Breaks” when it comes out in specific parts of Europe February 5th, or in April when it finally hits American shores; it will be available at all normal online distribution outlets (CDBaby, Amazon).
