On ABOUT A BURNING FIRE, Blindside proved that they were one of the most diverse hard rock bands on the scene, careening from the screams and rhythmic intensity of death metal to punk-pop cheerfulness at the drop of a hat. In addition, the album was chock full of catchy tunes and the band's trademark inspirational lyric bent. As the title suggests, however, GREAT DEPRESSION explores the band's darker side, often fusing oblique minor-key melodies with the usual heaviness. "Ask Me Now" features Jeff Buckley/Radiohead-esque crooning vocals over a throbbing, drum-heavy groove. "We Are to Follow" channels stud-rock of the Ted Nugent variety while "My Alibi" goes a step further, recalling the thrash guitars and harmonized lead guitars of early Metallica. Characterized by a distinct change in tone from Blindside's previous work, GREAT DEPRESSION also ambitiously redefines the group's art.
