Unlike some currently popular punkers, these guys know how to play their instruments. Not that knowing how to play is any big deal in the punk realm, but this skill may help Visually Impaired cross-over to a harder-rocking audience. The band's wall of sound comes from two electric guitars, bass, drums and vocals. The guitars are recorded LOUD, while the vocals remotely echo "intelligent punk bands" Bad Religion or Pennywise. There's no screeching here, just great melodic singing. The band understands the value of dynamics, and doesn't bludgeon you with a constant barrage of volume. Standout tracks include "Twenty Five ," with its Sabbath meets New Model Army guitar intro, or "Chorus of Angels," a track that would have been right at home on the best Bad Religion albums. The lyrics discuss themes of hopelessness and despair: "No one understands the emptiness that has surrounded you since birth. You knew in your parent's minds that you were nothing but an unpleasant surprise." Visually Impaired's music will have you reaching to turn up the volume. Punk doesn't get any better than this, so get ready to do some serious head banging.
