Reliably informed

If you went into a record store and hunted around the ‘B’s of the Pop and Rock section, you’d probably find the core ingredients of Critical by No Time For Reason.

Take ‘Biffy Clyro’ for strong rock guitars bordering on metal but nudging more towards emo, then add in some ‘Blink 182’ for the track’s driving drums providing a harsh undercurrent of pop/rock and take some of the raw, emotive, language of ‘Bikini Kill’ before finally throwing in some of the overall pop/rock melody lines and production of the ‘Backstreet Boys’ (‘larger than life’ – it’s meant as a compliment) and you’d get this little belter of a track.

Raw and emotional, with a strong sense of pop, there’s all of the right ingredients here.
