Ardentjohn - On The Wire

How much you like 'nice' music will define your enjoyment of Ardentjohn's debut album On The Wire. Those who enjoy the type of music that washes over you and leaves you with a relaxed feeling will no doubt have the album on repeat to wile away those lazy weekends; those who need music to jump out from the speakers and grab their attention from the get-go would be wise to give this album a miss. There is literally nothing to offend during On The Wire's run time but unfortunately, there isn't much to excite either. That's not to say there aren't moments of brilliance on the album; 'Colours Of The Day' is a beautiful track that couldn't fail to loosen you up even after the most stressful of days and 'One Step Behind' ups the tempo considerably resulting in the most memorable track on the album and shows that the band are more than just a one trick pony. However these moments are sporadic at best and too often the gentler tone of the tracks leads them to blend into one uninspired effort, albeit an extremely tranquil one.
