|He Is We - My Forever|
|Sing It Loud - Everything Collide|
As with every year, 2010 was the last breath for quite a few good bands. These Arms Are Snakes, Envy On The Coast, Between The Trees and My Favorite Highway are just a few of the great bands to say goodbye to us this year. Sing It Loud is a band that broke up on a point higher than I ever expected them getting to. Everything Collide was one of the surprises of the year, moving from a very forgettable synthy debut to a southern tinged lasting follow-up. "Shadows" is the first song Sing It Loud has ever done with guitarist Kieren Smith on lead vocals, and he may very well be the best vocalist in the group. Kieren's vocals are extremely impressive on the bridge, while the drumming is notable throughout the song. Single "Sugar Sweet" symbolizes everything the band has ever attempted to do, which is to make pop music that you just want to come back to. "Wonder Why" ends the album and the band's career with possibly the best song Sing It Loud has ever done, with twinkling keys, rumbling baselines, and powerful guitar riffs. Additional cuts to listen to are "Thunderstorms" and "Only One".
