ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
4 1/2 stars out of 5. The Silver tongue online by Myriah Christine Pivotal by SMB Project reels you in with a lovely piano intro, then blasts you with lively shoegaze rock. Delightful dreampop sounds soon follow which have you floating on the clouds. Several songs are filled with the pure electric joy of being in love, bound by the theme, you and me against the world. Enhancing this you and me sensation is the male/female interplay of vocals between Stephen Belcamino and Angela Boshart. His reassuring croons coupled with her piercing calls create a fascinating mix. He sings, “We took a chance.” She sings, “Bound by fate, we carry on.” And together, “Here we are, just me and you.” “Above the Clouds” is a fantastic piece about love and loss. Beginning with a dreamy flow, Stephen Belcamino sings, “We found such peace. The two of us is all we need.” Then in near panic, he asks, “Can’t you feel it? Oh no!...It’s gone.” As if slipping back into his reality-denying dream state, he sings, “Here and now, without a sound…Above the clouds, we won’t come down.” The guitars and drums then enter with a desperate wake-up call while the lyrics plead, “I can’t live without you, face the world alone this time.” Pivotal runs the gamut of bliss and sadness. And though songs like “Rumors” and “Lies” demonstrate an angry streak, SMB Project doesn’t stagnate in raging despair. They move on to hope. In a seemingly paradoxical statement, Pivotal’s final track summarizes, “Looking back, my journey carries on.”

5 stars
4 1/2 stars Connections Magazine by Jaime Eschalman From the first few bars of the opening track (after a brief piano intro), I could instantly tell the SMB Project has grown. Their 11 song album, Pivotal, is the band’s first full length record, and it is a remarkable improvement over SMBP’s past efforts. The bio proclaims a ‘90s alternative rock like sound with the band’s own unique touch. I would say that is an accurate descripition, and I’d like to add a bit of a Smashing Pumpkins influence can be heard. Considering where SMBP was a few years back and where they are now, this album is a milestone and deserves to be in your music library.

I disagree- I give this album 5 stars
