Anyone who says rock is dead, Pale Blue Dot brings it back to life with Anatomy. With a sound influenced by modern rock, Anatomy is layered with track after track of the state of the country, particularly race relations. Lead singer/songwriter Tony LaRocco paints a clear picture of where we are as a country, but there are moments of optimism, leaving you feeling there is light at the end of the tunnel.
But what about the music? There’s some 90’s alt combined with 80’s prog rock. The vocals are gritty and the songs are arranged nicely around the excellent musicianship of Pale Blue Dot. It’s not perfect, but it is rock with heart, substance, and conscience that will still have you rocking out. Grab two out of a six pack and enjoy.
