Release Notes:
The Audition return with their fourth full-length and third in the last three
years, which could question the bands musical authenticity. If you’re familiar
with The Audition then you pretty much know what you’re going get with ‘Great
Danger’; driving pop-rock with good harmonies courtesy of Danny Stevens.

I’ll admit I didn’t pay that much attention to bands previous two releases,
mainly due to a mix of average feedback from the online community, and
personally not being a band I go out my way for. Nevertheless this manages to
start off healthy with ‘Let Me Know’, ‘The Art Of Living’ and ‘You Ruined This’
setting the tempo, as the bands straight to the point structure is instantly

Throughout the band show they have somewhat managed to craft near-perfect
radio-friendly (see ‘Can You Remember?’ and ‘Ms. Crumby’). Although the 2nd half
of album is, for the most part, filler that goes off into an area of where the
band sound quite moderate. Throw in the standard acoustic number (‘Run Away’)
and riff-heavy concluding ‘Final Adventure’ then you’re done, just past the half
hour mark.

Rushed? Maybe. Back to the best? Possibly. As ‘Great Danger’ generally starts
off strong and has you wanting to hear those tracks again, but by the end you’re
left with the impression that the band could of done better. Whilst the later
tracks go back and forth between average-ness and (slight) variation, they
generally disappoint. Performance-wise Stevens’ vocals are on top form
throughout and the band definitely show they have a found formula, that is
favourable. One which is your standard pop-rock, with more emphasize on the
rock, thankfully. Nevertheless for fans of the band and the genre they’re in,
this will please them as it hits the right notes when needed, but its short time
length means this is just off the 3.5 mark.
