Unwritten Law 12/1/2003

Review

This unusual project from the pop/punk band Unwritten Law came about when they were asked to appear on MTV's Music in High Places, where they played an acoustic set of their songs in Yellowstone Park. The band with a drum set, a bunch of acoustic guitars, and an acoustic bass, played up on a cliff, by a pond, and in the middle of a rodeo arena surrounded by horses and bulls. The band is surprisingly convincing playing intimate, acoustic numbers, and they manage to have a much fuller and accomplished sound than they do on their other records, almost sounding like a different band. On Music In High Places, they knock out the occasional pretty acoustic solo. Pat Kim's bass playing is impressive, and Scott Russo's voice is quite pleasant. But the music can't hide that the songs are still boring pop songs, generic as can be with the dullest lyrics imaginable. Is playing uninspired songs very skillfully an accomplishment? No, not really. Still, this is the best record they've put out and they should consider sticking with the acoustic sound. Though that's unlikely. ~ Adam Bregman
