  • A Skylit Drive is a pretty good band, first off. They are creative with their combination style of music, which combines hardcore, screamo, rock and even some soft rock with synth set in the background of several songs. Jordan Blake was the lead vocalist of this ep album and did a nice job of showing off his vocal talents in several different forms. Along with the catchy lyrics, the music is very listenable for most rock fans that can accept vocals and screaming in music. The lyrics are pretty well written, some songs better than others, but for the most part are at least decent and very understandable. The first track is a nice opener including a screaming vocalization style, also including hardcore and synth in the beginning and end of the song. Drown the City is the second track and one of my favorite (if not favorite song by the band). It starts out with hardcore and develops into a synthetic and very mellow vocalization that suits the song excellently, and combines the hardcore and sweet melodic vocalization throughout the great track. The All Star Diaries starts with high pitched singing and creates hardcore and screamo throughout, with somewhat meaningful lyrics; generating the vocalization styles in an organized manner and it works pretty well. Hey Nightmare… is a somewhat angry song with lyrics expressing (the style of) battle. It song starts of with a roaring kind of hardcore sound that evolves into a unique style of melodic and fitting vocalization, even adding piano to certain parts, which is a great touch, especially to a kind of genre that limits the instrumentals of a piano. The Past The Love The Memory is the softest and perhaps the most eerie vocalization of ASD yet. It is a very heartfelt song and expresses Jordan’s emotions very well, along with creating a break in the harder pitched sound and sounds very nice as well. According to Columbus opens the track with melodic guitar and continues the fine tuned sound of the album, except creating a rougher sound with quite a bit of screamo and hardcore vocals, it also showcases Jordan’s emotions in the chorus; perhaps telling of a person he knew and thought of them very highly of and perhaps was/is in love with them.
