A Third Release Honorable Mention in the 2005 Awards
With The Art Of Breaking, TFK has widely diversified and experimented with their sound (hence their new genre description ).
The CD kicks off with “Absolute”, a powerful, rocking anthem that is one of their best tracks to date.
“Slow Bleed” lyrically asks if someone can be imperfect and still be accepted.
Title track “The Art Of Breaking” is a good rocker.
“Stranger” is musically darker in the first verse, building into the chorus.
The main melody and lyrics of “Hand Grenade” are fine, and it’s a quite heavy rocker; yet there is a guitar section near the end where the melody isn’t played at all (and sounds distinctly like Trevor is just showing off ).
“Move”, “Hit The Floor”, and “Go” are certain to be played live— their excellent, driving music and energetic vocals will get crowds moving instantly.
“Make Me A Believer” is a familiar-feeling rocker that is similar to the songs on their second album.
And finally the closer track “Breathe You In”, an excellent, slow-building, slow-rocking ballad, is a great way to finish off the CD.
