Trik Turner, Self-titled

By Tom Makarov

Much in the vein of Linkin’ Park and Project Wyze, Trik Turner’s self-titled release seems as though it was pushed through the studio to capitalize on the popularity of nĂ¼-metal bands. Unfortunately, it came off lacklustre and empty.

The dual vocals are very familiar and the lyrics are hit-and-miss in terms of their complexity. Lacking the anger of more popular acts such as Korn, I’d describe their overall sound as “suburban angst.” On the plus side, you can hear white guys say “you can get with this, or you can get with that,” a bunch of times. Low on the innovative scale, they sample artists such as A Tribe Called Quest and Ini Kamoze. At best, copy this CD off a friend.
