While there are certainly a lot of worthy acts checking out, we do feel that pop punk doesn’t always excel in terms of variety. But here is someone who does offer something different – Chris Quinn, and his acoustic-based project A Reason For This, who put out a self-titled EP at the top of the year.
Stuck opens it well, sporting a very nice rhythm, while the short but sweet This Place Is Still The Same boasts great lyrics and a fast pace driven by the guitar.
The emotions truly show through with You Were Right, and the anguish is only heightened in The Home In My Head, before Changing serves as a low-key note to end on.
A solid compilation that lends as a perfect intro to the talents of Chris Quinn, and we recommend it without hesitation to fans of the genre who are maybe looking for something less traditional.
