Title: Full of War
Released: February 2013
Label: Good Fight Music
Producer: Paul Leavitt
Full of War is Conditions’ second full length album and it serves up essentially what you’d expect from the band. It’s the same upbeat, anthemic, fists-in-the-air type pop rock that the band have become synonymous with. In fact, compared to their previous album, Full of War has the same tempo, same style, same superb lyrical messages and the same song structures, though fortunately enough the same high standard of execution.
Conditions have a knack of continually churning out predictable songs that are so infectious that you forget to care. At this stage I should be bored of listening to an up-tempo pop rock song with a massive chorus, but once I get to that chorus and it sticks in my head, all is forgiven. If you’ve enjoyed releases by this band before, then you’re sure to love what’s on offer here, but if you’re looking for signs of development and creativity in their style, then you may be disappointed.
