Halo - Lunatic Ride (2002) Retail CD
Melodramatic pomp-rock is the order of the day on Lunatic Ride, the debut album from Bristolian quartet Halo. Listen to these 13 tracks of atmospheric melodic rock, and the most immediate comparison you'll come up with is Muse. It's true, the two bands share a number of hallmarks--somersaulting falsetto vocals, stark wall-of-sound guitars and an attitude ripe for rock god posturing. But Halo forsake the distorted, rough edge so beloved of Matt Bellamy and pals for a clean production style that paradoxically, makes Halo a little more accessible, but a little less interesting. All the same, theremore… are some stellar moments here. "Sanctimonious"--here with extra oomph from Pixies producer Gil Norton--opens in a shrill thunderstorm of feedback, before opening out into a twisted lullaby of highly-strung heartbreak and gut-wrenching emotional histrionics. "Cold Light of Day" showcases the band's tight-as-a-barber's-shop-quartet vocal harmonies. And the dark eroticism of "Vampire Song"--let's just say it pertains to the menstrual cycle--proves that the band have a few skin-crawling wild cards to fill up the album's closing act. A patchy debut, but one that indicates that better things are surely in the pipeline. --Louis Pattison
