CD Review: True Nature's 'You Shouldn't Have To Shout So Loud'

True Nature
You Shouldn't Have To Shout So Loud
True Nature/Fire Sign Records

The New York City-based power pop and alternative rock group, True Nature, brings us an excellent album of alternative tunes with vocals akin to The Gufs and Nickelback. The instrumental arrangements are not too far off either. The six-track album contains one track that is a short introduction to "My Freedom Lies Behind The Sun." The alternative rock song is pure Nickelback with The Gufs guitar work. The title track, "You Shouldn't Have To Shout So Loud," contains jingly and grungy guitar work with vocals not too dissimilar from Pearl Jam and Nickelback. "Only Love" is a classic rock tune with pop and alternative greatness that only can be achieved by the best groups. Fortunately, True Nature is one of the good guys with good vocals, arrangements, and catchy rhythms. Fans of the aforementioned groups will be happy to add True Nature to their audio library. After all, it's only natural. ~ Matthew Forss
