Sleeping With Sirens is a very intuitive young band with a lot of potential. However, before listening to Let’s Cheer To This, make sure not to over-estimate it. Sleeping With Sirens frontman Kellin Quinn boldly declared that their sophomore record would be “the best” of 2011. Sorry, Kellin, but not quite. Nevertheless, Sleeping With Sirens did manage to top their last release and produce a pretty solid collection of songs. The brightest points of the album include the anthem-like song “Do It Now Remember It Later” (the first single released from the record, and its’ opening track), “A Trophy Father’s Trophy Son” (a song about not having a father around), and the soft love song, “All My Heart.”
Sleeping With Sirens has taken their songs in a lighter, slightly more mainstream direction, but it is a direction that suits the band well. Let’s Cheer To This is a true alternative rock effort, as opposed to 2010’s With Ears to See and Eyes to Hear, which was better categorized as post-hardcore. Kellin Quinn’s voice shines throughout a record which contains more meaning than, and seems to have been thought out a good deal more than the band’s last record. Make sure to check out the album when it drops tomorrow.
