Tandjent's release of "No One Will Hear Us" is a raw and energy-infused CD that is comprised of a heavily driven guitar and deep growling lyrics. Self-mastered and mixed, the CD is a clean structural sounding board integrated with the the brash sound of thrash metal and traditional heavy metal. Their roots show with the reminiscants of bands like Testament and Meshuggah but they are only roots. Tanjent has developed it's own stylings and sound that make it distinguishable and unique.

The riffs are prime, especially in Gasoline Finder, I Remain and No One Will Hear Us and it certainly doesn't hinder Tanjent that the professional quality they've put into their sound resounds throughout the CD itself. No One Will Hear Us has its own sound and progressive style. There is a sound here for everyone that enjoys the heavy metal feel. The composition is, at times, extremely technical while at other times you get what is a decidedly abstract feel.

No One Will Hear Us carries you through progressive and hard rock right into an evolutionary style of metal. You do not have to enjoy heavy lyricism to appreciate the sound that makes this CD so cohesive. Tanjent has an original sound that many attempt, but few succeed at.

5 Excellent - Buy it and say a prayer to the metal gods that you were tuned on to this masterpiece. A classic.
4-4.5 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a clunker or a lacking somewhere to keep it from perfection. You won't feel bad about dropping some bones on these.
3.5 Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler. This is the OK range where you'd search for the record on sale or used.
3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio. Could show skills but be dull overall. Redeeming qualities for indy bands are effort and passion. Majors that don't try or suck outright end up here.
2-2.5 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors. There is much better metal out there.
1-1.5 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
0 Terrible or an otherwise waste of your life and time.

Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
