YATIN DAWRA

Mothered Land is an abandoned construction site. At a place where a magnificent building could have been built now lies an isolated crane and a few iron pillars. The album, where the songs could have taken the band to a newer direction, has only a few good riffs scattered around the corners. The band seems to have rushed into the studio with ideas before working them out a little more. Their alt-rock leanings take a bit of a stumble, with unnecessary drum fills, monotonous guitar solos, a rhythm guitar tone that doesn’t quite blend, and the vocalist’s often underwhelming attempts. This album is melodic boredom.

‘Bitten’, the first track, kicks off with an amateur riff with no punch and the vocalist trying hard to make his voice fall in place; the first thoughts about the album aren't good. This track, like most of the album, sounds like a crash course in music making and production – a surprise given the band’s experience. ‘Untitled’ manages to pick up the pace through a rich acoustic guitar sound and delayed atmospherics before the vocalist enters the mix. 'Storm’, on the other hand, screams exactly what’s wrong with the album – a catchy riff begins, but the collective sound wave just doesn’t rise high enough for a harmonic surf. The album lacks basic nurturing of musical thoughts, and the overall feeling is that of disappointment, which is what you get if you pull the chicken out of the oven before the timer beeps.
