The Sound of Human Lives Review

by Pemberton Roach

On its debut full-length album, THE SOUND OF HUMAN LIVES, Boston-based band Therefore I Am delivers an aggressive, raw hardcore sound that is often tempered by a knack for melody and catchy hooks. Even though the record sometimes veers into emo-like vocal and guitar texture territory (“It’s No Wonder Why,” “Splinters”), the sound always retains a tough-sounding edge. Throughout, the rhythm section adds a touch of math rock-ish chops, the end result sounding a bit like Rush jamming with Thursday.
