Pity Parade by The Cancellations: Review
Pity Parade, the latest album by The Cancellations, is an alternative rock record with a new perspective. With 13 expressive tracks with radioactive vocals, you’ll be inspired to pack your bags and jet across the world.
The magical essence of Verse and a Chorus continues as it transitions into Born to Break My Heart, which contains echoes of the first song. Elijah Jones transforms his voice into an honest, gloomy yet bold vocal in Beauty Queen as the music explodes with guitar riffs. Even though Here Comes the Sunshine is an optimistic melancholy song, the singer maintains the same attitude throughout. However, you’ll find the melancholy seep in Secret Truth. The Cancellations pick it up midway, fantastically outdoing themselves in Whatever You Want. It has all the makings of a smash hit on the radio. Up next, Standing On Your Own takes you on a voyage to the ends of the world, propelled by Elijah’s ethereal voice and Ferrell’s pounding drumming. Schizophrenic Blues and Digital Cage builds slowly at first, but the song’s true heart is revealed in its blazing instrumentals, which abruptly break away. Both “Smack Me in the Face” and “Party Girl” has a similar impact, but their respective instruments are tuned to perfection to create a thrilling aural experience. And with an immersive revolutionary buildup, We Are Not Alone becomes one of the most amped tracks in this album. Something Borrowed has the same underlying badass vibe but completely destroys it. Pity Parade sends tremors from head to toe, making your feet tap to the beat of the drums in 43 minutes and 13 seconds.
