The biggest issue with this record is its pacing. Coming out the traps all guns blazing with Buried and Blue (one of the heaviest songs on the album). It gets the blood pumping and excited for an expected tour de force. However second song Funeral Verse sucks all life at the album. A slow ballad which if placed better within the album may be more effective. After this the record never fully recovers. A constant swing between heaviness and slow ballads prevents any momentum. In truth this makes the record a very hard listen.
The emotional concept of the record is felt throughout and with better pacing and structure it would surely have a greater impact on the listener. The execution of the majority of the songs are good and whilst the songs themselves aren’t top drawer they display a potential. With the blending of gloomy electronic elements and the typical modern guitar parts, create an atmosphere which compliments the emotive vocals. If this is worked on and with growth as a band Modern Error could certainly improved on this debut.
