Many bands out there today are trying to create music that will stand the test of time whether through quality songs or stage show spectacles. New York's Moment Theory is comprised of three exceptional musicians who have set out to create. The band's goal is simple in the words of bassist Bobby Bello, "ůMaking memorable songs instead of just memorable parts." Throughout the EP you can hear echoes of A Perfect Circle, Foo Fighters, and S.C.I.E.N.C.E. era Incubus.
Each song is beautifully crafted and passionate, but it's unfortunate that it's only an EP; I would love to see what the band can do on their next full album. Album opener "Calling Shotgun" is one of the best songs on the album; it has just a huge rock sound to it and should be all over radio. "Regrets" is probably my favorite song on the EP. The remorseful acoustic song is a perfect break in the album and is stripped down to its barest form, another sign that the band will be at home on rock radio. "Reaction Time" has a very Breaking Benjamin feel to it features some great guitar work. It being an EP aside, this is a great album and a band to be watching for in the future.
