Atticus Fault - 2002 Atticus Fault


ATTICUS FAULT - ATTICUS FAULT (2002, MCA)
Todd Evans - vocals, keyboards, guitars
Jason Noe - guitars, vocals
Chris Laurent - bass, vocals
Paul Asciutto III - drums, percussion


Background
Rather like Collapsis before them, Atticus Fault is the thinking man's rock band. Intense, melodic and not a song about high school in sight, it's clear that they won't be to everyone's tastes; the epic six and a half minute opener, 'Soundtrack' is testament to that.

The Songs
Yet don't discount Atticus Fault as an inaccessible band. The quartet may display a real lyrical and musical depth but vocalist Todd Evans has a commercial-sounding voice, and songs like the memorable 'My First Trip to Mars', the powerful standout 'Silver Stars' and the lush, sonic tapestry of 'Little People' make for an engaging, interesting listen. Indeed, this standard is maintained throughout. 'Damn' is dreamily hypnotic, '1000 Years' and 'Once Around the Sun' are heartfelt without being cliched, and perhaps the only mistake is the terrible electro-fused 'She's a Vision'.

In Summary
Apart from that slight error, 'Atticus Fault' is a promising, well-written debut that will hopefully be the first of many albums for this Nashville band.

This is a fantastic ...no... brilliant album...and easy to pick up at a doozy of a price generally. Very melodic pop rock with a somewhat contemporary feel. I'd heard reports saying it sounded a little like U2 which having heard it confounds me completely. I'm so glad I took a chance on this CD as its now one of my fave albums these days .... one of those you play and find something new each play. The E.P. that proceeded this Bolara is worth tracking down too.
Pity they split as I feel they were really something special - Todd Evans went onto form a band called The Golden
