Music Album Review: Saosin - "Along the Shadow" (8/10)

Anthony Green has returned to the group he paved the post-hardcore path with in 2003, Saosin. Along the Shadow features familiar tones, but with a maturity in songwriting—something scenesters will either grow to admire or instantly reject. The album’s opener, “The Silver String,” perfectly encompasses what listeners can expect throughout: heavy rhythm guitar below harmonic leads, A.D.D. drumming and a dual threat of throat screaming slash syrupy clean vocals from Green. Though marketed as “Saosin Featuring Anthony Green,” this is Saosin in its purest form in well over “7 Years.”

Score: 8 out of 10
