MERCY FALL
FOR THE TAKEN
ATLANTIC

Sanitized for modern rock radio consumption, the 11-track endeavor by Arizona's Mercy Fall has got CW melodrama soundtrack written all over it, from the tearjerkingly mid-tempo feel of "Wake" to the undulating waves of light and dark found on "Hush". Going deeper than your average rock band, this quartet's love of '90s rock bursts through the speakers, as everything from STP to Jeff Buckley to Soundgarden to Pearl Jam turns up through the duration of FOR THE TAKEN, however these guys lose points for turning up the sap meter on pedestrian numbers like "Here I Am". Tapping the Creed and Finger Eleven vein with a smattering of alternative rock staple influences, if you like it passionate yet safe, Mercy Fall is a good choice.
