The priorities of Don Broco become immediately clear to the listener on "Priorities": overflowing melodies. They work best if you turn up the volume control a little more (or even better a little more). The British foursome first of all gives itself a smooth punky, only to then throw itself around with massive emo and semi-prog chunks. But his music always remains highly melodic and stirring. The whole thing is reminiscent of a conglomerate of Thin Lizzy (the coolness) and Circa Survive (the ultimate harmonies). "Fancy Dress" drives such a tingly drive that you get out of breath even as a listener. "Back In The Day" is melodic metal with pop appeal and a chorus that is addictive. "Hold On" as well as "Yeah Man" even have a lot of hit appeal and "Actors" could also do well in the legend world of Coheed And Cambria. This debut album is damned entertaining. So it's all the more painful that it only lasts a good half an hour with its eleven tracks.
