Amos The Transparent (Ottawa, On)
Bio Says: “Although they claim to be transparent, Amos are anything but. They live between the light and the dark, sometimes in the shadows, occasionally in the dark, more often in the light. Their songs take them there! Quantum shifts between heavy and light, soft and hard, loud and quiet.”
What they think they sound like: “Amos has been featured on Q with Jian Ghomeshi, who referred to them as “the Canadian Wilco”.”
Sounds like: Inspirational music for use in automobile commercials.
Honest review: There is just way too much to hate, so where does one even begin? The kind of band that attempts earnest sincerity and, as a result, comes off shallow and souless. I can’t believe that there is still a market for this kind of tripe.
