Review- - Marianas Trench's Ever After

This week I decided to review Marianas Trench's latest album Ever After.  It's the BC band's third studio album and has had three singles released off of it so far.  I was so surprised a couple years ago how much I enjoyed Masterpiece Theatre and this, its follow-up, is no disappointment.  Lead singer and mastermind Josh Ramsay is incredibly talented and I believe he's going to be a stand-out in Canadian music for decades.  (Did you know he took Carly Rae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe from slow, guitar-heavy song, to the pop smash it is today?)

The influence of Freddie Mercury and Queen is obvious throughout the 12 tracks, with its theatrical nature and flair.  Ramsay's blood, sweat and eyeliner are palpable:)  You should listen to this album from start to finish as it plays like a story with no break between songs.  There is zero filler and not one track I wanted to skip.  The songs are radio-friendly hits yet unique and unlike anything else out there.  Desperate Measures is their current hit and I cannot help but turn up the volume on this song.  Love it!  (And I think this is the first time a music video made me LOL!)
On a final note, I encourage you to read the liner notes.  There is an entire story that goes with the track listings.
