Travis Woyen's - Echoes in the Dark

Travis Woyen's - Echoes in the Dark
4

OVERALL

4.0 /10

Travis Woyen’s – Echos in the Dark showed up in our in box a few months ago. This Minnesotan who has been inspired by 70’s prog rock. Produced and and played all the instruments on this recording.

I think maybe this album would have benefited from other people’s input. For instance, the sound is not melodic, its dreary. Something is not right with the vocals. I can’t put my finger on what my problem is either they are screamed instead of sung, maybe its an effect. I think it would have made a huge difference if a less dirty sound and the vocals could carry above of the really interesting guitar work.
