Control Top Share One Good Day
I know that Control Top‘s Covert Contracts got a lotta lotta love last year from all the heavy hitters…but I listened, and it was good, but it wasn’t something that really blew me away. Here they are upon their return, and I want to like it, but at the moment, I’m on the fence. Ali Carter’s voice is the high point throughout; there’s a flare in it that only the best front people have, shining through the recorded version. Musically, I just wasn’t super interested in the guitar work; it felt like someone that was really into Queens of the Stone Age their whole life suddenly wanted to be in a punk band. Guess that makes me an asshole, but I wanted something sharper, more angular. Didn’t hate it, but didn’t love it. You?
