I happened to hear Sum 41's new single "We're All to Blame" this morning on the way to work. It's not the first time I've heard it, but for some reason this morning I was struck by how much they sounded like System of A Down, Lite. Is it just me?
Back on October 12, I wrote the following on SLS about Sum 41's latest single. "Sum 41 isn't nomally my cup of tea. Despite the fact they're from a town just a little East of where I live, I couldn't embrace their popified sound and silly style. Having said all that, I actually like this tune. Is it me or are they getting heavier? It's a welcome change".
System of a Down Lite is a pretty good way to describe this tune. It's got that fast yelling part mixed in with the slow soft melodic stuff. In fact, upon reading your entry, I played System of a Down's "ATWA" and the resemblance is obvious. "We're All To Blame" is System of a Down Lite! No wonder I actually like this tune.
