Ex Hex - It's Real
Mar 22, 2019

I love Ex Hex's sound, but this feels like diminishing returns. Like "Rips" before it, it's music you could have a lot of fun blasting from your car during the summer. But the songs seem a little more subdued, the hooks a little duller, and some of their signature tricks - those crushing, harmonized chords that always evoke a Towshend-like windmill - feel a bit worn out. Since it's not as "rawk" as "Rips," I wish "It's Real" would have committed to exploring the softer/sadder end of their sound. Instead it sounds like the band just got tired. Still, I can't exactly hate an album where Mary Timony plays guitar.
