AC Acoustics' third album is very much a return to the guitar thunderstorm
created by the much-missed Kitchens Of Distinction. Like that group, AC Acoustics
generally play their instruments very loud, but submerged beneath the wall of
sound, genuine layers of melody are slowly revealed. That's not to say 'Understanding
Music' is derivate and one-dimensional though; opener 'Luke One' and 'Arcane
Action Man' are deliciously melodic yet fairly light in terms of production.
Understanding Music appears as a bold plea to music: people, go beyond the cheap
tendencies of money-pop and return to rock music as an art form with feeling.
Every song stands alone as powerful, and every lyrics asks for a passionate
response. The listener is lead on a musical journey that is difficult to parallel.
Combining soft instrumentals with powerful, intimate songwriting, A.C. Acoustic's
Understanding Music is rock music defined as ART, and succeeds brilliantly.
