Between the Buried and Me frontman/keyboardist Tommy Rogers takes an alias (Thomas Giles) and makes his way into solo artist territory on the 11-track PULSE. This effort showcases Giles’ crisp songwriting prowess as well as a leaning towards the electronic side of the mainstream rock spectrum, a far cry from his day job’s progressive pounding. Providing a departure that stands toe to toe with any artist currently impacting the airwaves, this album embodies the true definition of solo project, as Giles both produced and performed all of the instruments that comprise this adventurously composed and diversely developed release. If you’re expecting something heavy, move along, but if you want well textured and masterfully captured avant-garde rock, this disc is worthy of your attention.
