Most Of What Follows Is True

Fire Note Says: Detroit band returns after 5 years with a solid fourth record!
Once hailed as Detroit's next big band, The Sights rode a trail of hype behind their first two records right into a major label deal that imploded and left the band for dead back in 2005. Five years later, singer/guitarist Eddie Baranek has reassembled The Sights and released the groups fourth record Most Of What Follows Is True. Time has mellowed the overall sound of The Sights, as this record still contains garage rock pieces but is much more tame and even ventures down a folk road on several tracks complete with twang on "I Left My Muse" and "Maria". It is when The Sights bring back their upbeat attitude on songs like the power poppin' "Happy" or the grinding opening rocker "How Do You Sleep?", does this record find its groove. The 2010 version of The Sights does have a different sound, as maturity takes a lead role here and there is no pressure built on Most Of What Follows Is True's success. This lets The Sights be who they want to be, as this was a record made out of the love for music and it comes through here on every 60's influenced power pop nugget, every Detroit sounding garage stomper and even the steel pedal induced tracks all back up The Sights early hype and prove that their talent has never diminished.
Key Tracks: "How Do You Sleep?", "Guilty", "Happy"
