As Day is a collection of catchy "alternative" rock
songs on the Static Records label of Detroit. Created by Jettison
Red, an unexcitable-looking fourpiece, the album is surprisingly
catchy, but a bit predictable.
"Livin' It Like No Tomorrow", for example, is a catchy,
upbeat pop song with a sugary sweet chorus. "Just Outside Of
Five", is similarly catchy, except with more of an Ash
influence. The most infectious track, however, is "Did You
Call?" It's a tremendously energetic power pop number with dual
vocals and strong power guitars.
All in all, nothing fresh or innovative is being achieved on Clear
As Day, and there's no problem with that if you're just looking
for a quick fix, because where they're low on content, Jettison Red's
high in fun. While indie kids may want something a bit farther from
the mainstream, Jettison Red will appeal to fans of
"alt" bands like Weezer and Jimmy Eat World.
And hey, they thank their fans in the liner notes!
