The Bulletproof Tiger’s Wanna Kiss About It? is a great expansion of the groundwork they put down on their EP a few years ago. The album is very exciting rhythmically and melodically and the songs are just as tight live as on the album. The 4 piece is based in Toronto and just put out 8 songs that will amaze any lover of instrumental music. I’ve personally never been so emotionally impacted by instrumental music. This release highlights the band’s terrific composition ability, with each instrument acting on it’s own, but also complementing the other parts perfectly. This album features more spastic time changes than their debut and their sound feels somewhat more realized than the very groove-heavy Stab The New Cherry from 2009. While this band has been compared continuously with groups Tera Melos and A Minor Forest since a review at The 405 I think it’s fair to say that with Wanna Kiss About It? the group has achieved a unique sound with an exciting future. I anxiously await the possibility of 3 new songs that didn’t make the album being released in the “near future”.
Highlights: Everything Popular is Wrong, An Awkward Moment With A Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Menter Mandman.
REALLY FUCKING GOOD
Couldn’t agree more.
