ALBUM REVIEW: The Trophy Fire – “Modern Hearts”

The Trophy Fire Modern Hearts

Year of the Album — #085
The Trophy Fire – “Modern Hearts” (2011, Greyday)

The hooks might get them through the door, but Modern Hearts features music barely half as memorable as Trophy Fire thinks it is.

There’s a lot about the Trophy Fire’s Modern Hearts that I liked, and much of it lied in the strong musical hooks these songs offered up. But the album as a whole left me feeling cold, and it wasn’t just because the best song on the album was a cover of the Knife’s “Heartbeats.” In the end hooks alone aren’t enough to live by, and this blend of energetic alternapop came up short in the long run.
