I was not at all convinced by Throw The Fight’s previous album but they seem to have pulled together nicely on “What Doesn’t Kill Us” and while they were at it, they toned down the screaming… good thinking!

While they still lay down some pretty heavy riffage, the keyboards and vocals bring a more poppy atmosphere that suits these guys. I’m thinking I’m a little too old too still be enjoying this to the fullest but hearing these songs did put a little more bounce in my step and the cover of “I Just Died In Your Arms” made me smile. Granted, it’s an easy way to score but they do it pretty good nonetheless.

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.
