Mad Lee Riot - Terra In Cognito

MAD LEE RIOT take a step out with their debut album TERRA IN COGNITO. They are one of those bands that are hard to pigeonhole as they twist and dance around a few genres without falling into one obvious category. Alternative rock/grunge would be the most comfortable fit although there is also some very indie-pop melodies in here too.

There is definitely a hint of Alice In Chains and Soundgarden hidden in the swirling sounds produced here.

Any band that can do an off the wall cover of Britney Spears' Toxic are fine with me (OK I have confessed that I like her now *runs off to hide*). It's not as good as the original but it is a fabulous take on it and well worth getting this album for!

Standout tracks:
Terra In Cognito
Toxic
Acedia
Take It Back

RATING: 7/10
