The Designer’s Drugs: Falling Still – May All Magic Guide and Change You

May All Magic Guide and Change You

Medium: Album

Stimulus: Falling Still – May All Magic Guide and Change You

Anno: 2009

Falling Still opens its album with its best song, which is “Birth.” It’s a Foo Fighters-sounding track which takes the listener through a wide array of moods, beginning at bouncy, upbeat rock and descending into a captivating rush of guitars, strings, and desperation in the second half.

What follows is a collection of high energy, dirty white boy rock music. Most of May All Magic Guide and Change You doesn’t match the songwriting featured in “Birth.” Its closest competitors come in the bipolar gloom of “Zeus” and the soft strings of “Smashing,” two tracks which appear at album’s end. Yet in and of themselves, the tracks in the middle serve their purpose as party songs. The result is strong, if inconsistent.
