The Coloursound

Guilty for the First Time / Hold On (single)

Review by Gary Hill

I like The Coloursound. I reviewed their last disc and this single is the follow up. This time around, though, we’ve just got two songs. Both of them are entertaining and do a nice job of continuing the musical legacy of the group. If you liked their full disc, you’ll like this. If you didn’t hear that one, this might be a great way to get introduced to this cool band that does a great job of combining progressive rock with more pop oriented elements.

Track by Track Review
Guilty for the First Time

This powers in with a great melodic prog style and grows out from there. The acoustics have a lot of passion and style in them. The layers of sound are driven by acoustic guitar. The chorus hook is very pop-like and extremely catchy.

Hold On
Less proggy, this is a rather jazzy tune that’s quite entertaining. I like it a lot. It’s got some great vocal arrangements and some cool soaring space rock like elements overhead. There is a cool mellower bridge.
