Review: 'Century Thirteen'
'Century Thirteen'   

-  Genre: 'Rock' -  Release Date: '13th July 2018'

Our Rating:
The thirteenth century is widely considered to sit within the time bracket known as the High Middle Ages, which was dominated by the significant expanse of the Mongol Empire. It was the time of Edward I, and of the later crusades. All of this is rather more exciting than the eponymous album by this Glaswegian act who align themselves to Green Day, Blink-182 and New Found Glory. It’s high on energy, but then, it’s also highly predictable for the most part.

‘Stop the world I want to get off! / I’ve had enough of life’ they chorus on album opener ‘Get Off’ before bailing into some finger-pointing at the source of the anguish: ‘this is all your fault!’. It makes a change from the usual self-loathing that characterises the lyrics of so many emo/alt-rock bands, but then Century Thirteen’s debut rapidly slips into cliché, by-numbers Green Day influenced punk pop.

It’s got the energy, but simply lacks the differentiating features.
