I Forget Myself gives the grunge we all know and love a face-lift in his latest album Continues

Written, performed, and recorded by I Forget Myself. Continues…, is the second album in the artist’s discography lies somewhere between the angst and rage of Nirvana and the murkiness of Deftones.

The opening track ‘Wilderness Fire’ sets the scene for the record. Scathing guitar lines dance around each other to a bare-bones backbeat while I Forget Myself channels his inner Kurt Cobain, filling the vocals with almost excruciating agony.

That formula is used throughout which runs the risk of getting monotonous. However in songs like the scathing, 'It’s Not Me… It’s You' and 'It’s Time' I Forget Myself does enough to keep things interesting, the former showing a hint of My Chemical Romance-esque recklessness here and there while the contrast between pop-rock music and drawled vocals in the latter instantly catches the ear.

As far as I’m concerned the highlight of the album comes in the curtain call 'Get Something Started.' From the jump, it already feels different to the rest of the album, the frenetic, breathless intro creating an aggressive kind of excitement. The energy of the composition seems to inspire the vocals as well with I Find Myself tapping into a higher level of intensity and, in turn, giving the album the kind of conclusion it deserves.

I Forget Myself’s Continuesis a hotbed of nuance and intrigue that does enough to keep itself interesting within the confines of its overall sound.
