The Mother, the Mechanic, and the Path
Label: Drive Thru Records
Spanning three discs and 46 tracks, this is a triple album unleashed by the Early November on an unsuspecting public. The vocals are decidedly un-tough, but the guitars are always interesting if not downright spectacular. These Jersey-bred Drive-Thru records kids cut their teeth on the Warped Tour and, led by guitarist and singer Arthur "Ace" Enders, are clearly an ambitious lot. Jamming each song with explosive breaks and abrasive noises, Early November come off as a distinctive band in a homogenous emo-punk landscape.
