The Front Doors – BIG TIME
Yes you are reading this correctly, they’ve come out with another record just 7 months after their last one!
For those who didn’t see the first review, The Front Doors are a fuzz-pop/rock & roll band out of Long Island/Queens made up of Steven Joyce on bass/guitar/vocals, William Hargrove on drums and Michael LoSchiavo on bass/guitar/vocals. To date they have two full lengths, Open which was released in January, 2016 and their newest record BIG TIME which was released in August of 2016.
Reasons your ears deserve this:
-Consistent writing, you always have something new to look forward to
-Fun, upbeat rock n’ roll with catchy hooks and tasteful instrumentals
My favorite track on the record is Up The Wall.

Up The Wall is my favorite track on the record for a lot of reasons, and I’ll explain them! The song starts off with a simple drum beat and chord progression which is then accompanied by Mike’s vocals. They throw in a little spice with a drum fill and break that gives the verse some subtle depth. This song has the most catchy chorus of any The Front Doors song(in my opinion.) “I don’t really want to dance with you, but I really really don’t want you dancing with him.” The descending chords that sync perfectly with “dancing with him” make this hook that much catchier. Add in some well-placed vocal harmonies and you have a song that is sure to get stuck in your head.
The Front Doors have such a good formula for writing catchy, engaging and alluring songs that are short and sweet and leave you wanting more. Each track on BIG TIME has it’s own little flare of creativity and catchiness that makes the record so great.
