Rock Review: Flying Colors-Third Degree

Release Date: October 4, 2019
Label: Mascot Label Group / Music Theories Recordings

We are sitting at crossroads here. At times Third Degree sounds like an underground Grunge band and then it gives off a Kings of Leon-type vibe. With the length of this record, it’s only fair that the album sends its sound in several different directions. Flying Colors sets themselves apart from the typical Rock group in the manner that it possesses facets of all sorts of tones and emotion, where similar bands have one or two tones or moods to them. The same can be said of the Pop genre as well but, that is a story of a different day. 

Flying Colors gives off a positive vibe of soothing rock tones. If in this case, you judge a piece of work by its cover, then you judged correctly. Though each track is not your typical 2 to 4-minute ear-worm, it feels more sophisticated. 

The longevity acts as a storyboard of sorts, except, there is no clear-cut resolution in this tale. It is just pure relaxation and enjoyment for anyone looking to be entranced by “Cadence” or journey through “Guardian.” So long as the listener comprehends that they are in for a musical ride of their life, nothing but happiness will arise. 

The band knows how to capture its audience and bring new listeners on board. They do not start their album with any particular extreme one way or another in terms of notation and lyric (or lack thereof in some songs). They simply let the emotion and music guide them through the minutes of each track.
