Low Level Flight – Through These Walls Review
Posted by Guest Writer on Thu, 19 Apr 2012.
We all have those rare albums where we just can't skip a single song. Well, I've got another one to add to my list. Through These Walls is the second album from Low Level Flight, a band originating from Toronto, Canada. The album was released here in the UK on the 7th of November.
Low Level Flight is a 5 piece band that has been around since 2006 with their first album "Urgency". They have racked 2 Top 40 hits in their home country and have had an extensive tour of India. Four years later they return with Through These Walls, which took two years in the making, all in effort for an entirely unique overture.

The album starts with "Cash Machine" and what a great way to start the album. This track really sets the tone for the rest of the album, upbeat and fast paced, not once did I get bored or tired of listening. We then get tracks like "Floor" which start out with a slower pace, then break back into the upbeat and fast pace of the rest of the album. I feel this works brilliantly, always maintaining your interest.
My only problem with Through These Walls is that some songs do sound too similar to the last before it. Speeds may change, but choruses sound too similar and it can be hard to easily distinguish which track you are listening to.
Overall the album makes me think if you were to fuse Lostprophets (Post-Liberation Transmission) and The Killers, this album is the result and this isn't a bad thing! You get the nice melodic feel of The Killers and the upbeat, fast paced and edgy-ness of Lostprophets.
If you're looking for another alternative rock band to add to your collection I can highly recommend Low Level Flight to take its place there.
