Saosin is an alternative screamo Rock and roll band,they're based off Newport Beach, California and came together in 2003.The band members are vocalist Cove Reber, guitarists Beau Burchell and Justin Shekoski, bassist Chris Sorenson, and drummer Alex Rodriguez (A-Rod from the yankees?of course not).
The first album the band ever dropped Translating the Name starred the original lead singer Anthony Green who is now the lead singer of his own band Circa Survive.Green, decided to call it quits with Saosin when the band signed to Capitol Records,and Anthony just wasnt ready to go commercial,Which says alot about the kind of music he wants to make.When Cove became the new lead singer the self titled debut album received Exceptionally good reviews from all or most critics
The Grey EP is the biggest example of a musical montage that i have ever heard,Soasin has incorporated different styles,combined with lots of brainstorming,and catchy smoothe lyrics.Besides being creatively motivated in this album Saosin gives the consumers a feeling of pure innovation.
All the songs recorded on this EP are live and most of them have been used on their most recent album In Search of Solid Ground.
In the song Keeping Secrets Cove shows his vocal range and raw energy placed over the perfect live melody,Why can't you see is the song that appealed to me the least,out of every song this is the one that screamed "I am so boring i give you permission to musically shoot me down,if not i'll just be shooting myself" Cove doesn't sound like himself and the band sounds like an alternative mtv rock band, definetly not a good look for Saosin.
Anyone who loves to listen to good live music or even acoustic music would love this album as opposed to the Post Hardcore Emo Screamo fans Saosin is useto attracting.This album Deserved a rating because it wasn't heard by many of the fans,and if your a typical Saosin fan maybe it shouldn't be heard by you either,but if you like a New Saosin with a pinch less creative control and no Anthony Green im sure you'de love The Grey EP.
