Track analysis:

1 – Lock you up

So “Lock you up” is a funky song a lot in line with what SID has been known for (jazzy rock), but as a twist, it relays just a bit too much on synths to try to have something exciting.

Putting the rather annoying synths that sometimes pop up in the middle of the song, the instrumentalization is actually pretty good.

The vibe we get from the song right from the start is interesting, and if you fancy rock songs that stray just a little bit from the genre adding pop lyrics and jazzy guitar playing, then you’ll love this song.

But the problem remains. Whereas we have a delighting heavy bassline we also have the dreading high pitched synths that almost ruined the experience for us.  

We forgot to mention earlier but the irregular drumming is actually quite nice in this song.

The vocal performance is as expected. apple-polisher‘s frontman doesn’t play around when it comes to singing. Shouta Aoi delivers every single line without missing anything.

Beat, tone, pitch, everything is perfect as you’d expect from him. In the end, if it wasn’t for the synths, this release would have been one of the best in the series but sadly it isn’t.


Lock you Up”  is available for purchase at CDJAPAN.

REVIEW OVERVIEW

Lock you Up

SUMMARY

Sugar Toxic Panic sing "Lock you up" for the third shuffle album on DYNAMIC CHORD's 2nd shuffle series. Looking at this lineup - Shouta Aoi (vocals - Apple-Polisher), Nobuhiko Okamoto (guitar - LiarS), Kaito Ishikawa (bass - KYOHSO), Yuya Hirose (drums - rêve parfait) - and having prior knowledge of how everyone sounds usually sound on their respective groups, you'd expect everything to go wrong with this unit. Well is that really what it turned out to be in the end?
