Gee, what to think of Our Last Night? These guys released an enjoyable debut album with “The Ghosts Among Us”. And if you haven’t listened to any music in the past five years you might even call it fresh. But the truth of the matter is there are hundreds of bands out there like Our Last Night. Bands who all sound an awful lot like they simply lifted some Underoath riffs from their albums and coupled them to Saosin’s choruses. And I don’t mean it sounds like they were influenced by these acts… no, it sounds like an exact copy.

So I don’t know what to think of these guys. If you’re a big fan of the sound, I guess you won’t mind. And there’s no denying these guys are technically skilled. But all technical prowess aside, I’d like to see at least a little bit of imagination, originality and ultimately a face of your own. And I’m not finding any of that on “The Ghosts Among Us”.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
