SING! SING! PRISON was an emo-rock band with some minor post-hardcore leanings who got their name from Alcatraz. The mostly whispered and occasionally sassed instrumentals can sound very reminiscent of bands such as Serotonin, Encrypt Manuscript and Despistado - without being as good as any of them. Truth be told, the main reason this is here (perhaps the only reason this is here) is because of their split with Mass Movement Of The Moth's "Making the Clouds Bleed" being a very cool post-punk/sass track. The rest of the discography is more emo based and not really my cup of tea. "Kindling Scaffold for Kindred Hearts" is worth mentioning because of both its 7:33 length and the epic nature of the song, which is quite different than the rest of their stuff. "Staples and Tape" has some tribal D'Amore and a lot of Q And Not U going on which is pretty cool. "Everything is Hardly Enough" is a pretty sweet song that reminds me of Serotonin meets The Get Up Kids. They have instrumentals down but the vocal delivery isn't always there. They vary from whispering to mildly snotty/sassy shouting and work best when paired with the jarring, heavier and even jazzier sounding stuff, although the beautiful "Verbatim" throws my argument on its side cuz that softer, resonating song is pretty sweet.
