IDLE CURE: ‘Idle Cure’ (Frontline Records RO9008 import)

I can’t picture the Bible-bashers Moshing to Idle Cure.

The band are based in Southern California, and boy does it sound like it! Polished and laid-back in the extreme, their Christianity is the only thing they have in common with label-mates Bloodgood. The religious references are there, but unlike Bloodgood, IC don’t feel the need to continually batter the listener over the head with their message. Bearing this in mind, they could well hit pay-dirt in the US with a pristine, squeaky-clean sound just perfect for radio.

You can’t fault their professionalism, though the end result is a-mite soulless.
