Opening track “Be Mercury” is a relatively up-beat number; using classic sounding guitars entwined with a modern indie-rock vibe and is generally a bit of a foot-tapper. The album’s title track is similarly up-beat; it trots along rather innocently and care-free and has a really contented sounding melodic chorus, pleasant stuff.
“Monkee Makers” has elements of KASABIAN to it the way it’s delivered, resulting in an album highlight, before we round things up with the softly played “Smile Is A Sign”, a short but genuinely lovely song. The album isn’t without its criticisms however, and the main one would have to be the vocal display of Alessandro Meneghel. For the most part he’s…ok, but, on tracks like “Run ‘N’ Shout” and “It Takes Two To Tango” you can hear a weakness, on the former it’s more in regards to the chorus but the latter is generally a bit of a mess. If you take into account big indie bands like KAISER CHIEFS for example, their singer Ricky Wilson has a clear vocal but it’s a powerful one (as far as indie goes at least) and it boosts the songs more than adequately, The Borderlines lack a strong front-man that would elevate their tracks from “ok” to “good”. There’s nothing too wrong with “ok” though, it is their debut after all.
