Song: "Bad Timing"
Album: "Ceci N'est Pas Recover"

This band saw me at the tail-end of my pop-punk meets screaming days of yore...err, 2002. I was transitioning out of Hopesfall, Boy Sets Fire and Thrice. RECOVER started out strong a year before this and delivered what I consider to be one of the most progressive post-hardcore records of the millennia (at that time, of course) with 'Rodeo and Picasso'. This record combines Refused screaming, Thrice pop-punk and the spaceyness of Cave In. 'Ceci N'est Pas Recover' showed the band making quick progress and great mixing didn't hurt either. The harder songs were hard but still retained a more cohesive sense of melody and the pop/rock hooks were even better than the previous full length. Then, all of a sudden, I stopped caring. I heard they went all-out pop-punk after the EP. That isn't surprising, but it's a shame about all of the pissed off fans who lashed out at the band for playing what they wanted. Tis in the past. Check them songs!
