Brush The Green

Self-Titled CD


Genres: rock, alternative rock

May 26 - Jun 1 2003

Brush The Green, who have appeared on the ScreamTracks Volume I compilation (released by Creed singer Scott Stapp's clothing line) as well as the Playstation/Xbox "Transworld Snowboarding" video game soundtrack, have high hopes for their music.  And why shouldn't they?  They've got an energetic, radio-friendly sound that provides the ideal backdrop to moshing, parties, snowboarding, and just having fun.  While a lack of originality and variety is apparent on this EP, criticizing it for that fact does no good.

You see, this music wasn't made to be deep, sophisticated, or "art"-y.  This was made to be taken for its superficial value - power guitars, yelled vocals, and catchy, familiar melodies.  The vocals are all that macho, on-a-mission style dreck, but that isn't a problem.  There's no use mentioning any particular tracks, because all five songs on this disc sound exactly the same.  I think you've got the point now.

If you're young and looking for some party music - something that's fun, but that that you don't really have to think about - then check out Brush The Green's debut EP.  In fact, you can have the band mail you a try-before-you-buy copy at for free, and you only have to pay for it if you like it.  But don't expect high art.
