Review – The Ladder

Review of The Ladder by www.manchestermusic.co.uk…THE LADDER
:: Optional Wallace ::
31 March 2012 / Squealing Beagle Records / Free Downlaod / Hand Packaged CD
By Jon Ashley
Optional Wallace may help run some of the best busking / unsigned nights in Manchester, but their own penchant for new wave tones bleeds through into this epic collision of guitars and a merry-go-round rock mini-operas. The bass tracks itself between the octaves, clambering between the slice and chops of the guitar which then scrawls its way through a roughly cast scale. “…The Ladder” is an infectious tune, locked somewhere between the hooks of Muse and the exciting wall to wall strategic scuzz of Mansun.http://www.music-dash.co.uk/releases/release.asp?item=7223
