CITIZEN "Youth" LP
From the first note of "Roam The Room," this album's massive, towering rock songs bleed emotion through until the tape runs out on the album closer, "Drawn Out." Ohio natives Citizen have captured the ghost of Brand New's "The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Of Me" and reinvented brooding, chorus-driven alternative rock for a new generation. Beautifully harmonized, half-shouted vocals along with fuzzy, reverbed-out leads lend weight to the album's mood while also making it impossibly catchy.
