“X” might be my favorite track just because of how hopeful it is

CityCop’s album “The Hope In Forgiving & Giving Up Hope” is totally a great post-whatever punk Ohio album. This is sort of like mewithoutYou, but I hate making comparisons. Although, mewithoutYou is awesome, so I hope nobody takes that as a negative comparison.

First off, when you put any sort of sea creature on your album cover, I’m going to come to your music with a great first impression. Then if the catch phrase from one of your songs is “Let’s create something great.” it’s going to be hard for me to have a negative image of you at all. So excellent job guys, I really love you.

“X” might be my favorite track just because of how hopeful it is, but I also really like, “Ode To Bula/Flight Lessons”. That one is a bit harder, and I love the intensity on the acoustic guitar. I’ve always been of the opinion that acoustic guitars are percussion instruments. Hit them as hard as you can. Acoustic guitar and double bass drums. If that’s not genius, nothing is. Nice amount of delay on the vocals too.

“Go West”. That’s solid advice in itself. Lots of people learn just from moving somewhere, and west is very often the direction of choice. The lyrics in this song are really great.

If you can, go see CityCop. I’m sure they’re tons of fun! If you can’t, go name your price to purchase their album “The Hope In Forgiving & Giving Up Hope” on their Bandcamp.
