The Autumn Defense
Seeing that some members of the band were part of Wilco, and inspired by Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Kinks, and The Zombies, I expected a lot. Unfortunately, like most bands that claim to be heavily influenced by the Beatles, The Autumn Defense sound like they’re trying a little too hard to capture the flawless melodies the Beatles were known for. Most of the songs are full blown ballads that sound similar to each other. And because of that, the album is a little boring. However, there is a song worth noting: “This Thing That I’ve Found”.
