Pop-meets-punk-meets-metal-meets-rock in the unlikeliest of places, this is the musical crossroads where you'll find Washington State-based trio The Fall of Troy, skittering off defiantly in one direction after another, refusing to stick to any one established road. If it sounds like it all adds up to chaos, that's because it often does - but only in the same beautiful way as our own everyday experience. And with Doppelganger, their Equal Vision debut, that kind of musical experimentation and alternate perspective has enabled Thomas Erak (vocals/guitar), Tim Ward (bass/vocals), and Andrew Forsman (drums) to stand out right from the start. 2005.

Before that, I was very into the Mars Volta. I still am, but as time went on, I got more and mroe into the Fall of Troy. I eventually bought the cd, and listened to it. Now, reguardless, I listen to all of Doppleganger, each day. I can't help it, they are so great. I didn't expect this band to actually entertain me, especially with their live work. They are an amazing band, and everybody else, who thinks otherwise, should just stick to their metalcore and rap. No reason for your lack o musical tastee to interfere with peple who have potential of lisntieng to one of the best bands to arise today
-I Just Got This Symphony Goin' 10/10 The guitar in the intro of this song is amazing.
- Act One, Scene One 10/10 One of the catchiest songs of the album that makes you want to shake your head when the singer goes into a screaming fit.
-F.C.P.R.E.M.I.X. 9/10 Great single but it gets somewhat old after listening to it for a month staright.
-You got a deathwish Johnny Truant? 10/10 Short but sweet.
-Mouths like sidewinder missiles 15/10 amazing, catchy song with awesome guitar riffs.
-The Hol[ ]y Tape 9/10 sweet intro, good song
-Laces Out, Dan! 9/10 good vocals, catchy
-We Better Learn To Hotwire A Uterus 8/10 great song off the old cd
-Whacko Jacko Steals The Elephant Man's Bones 11/10 SWEET SONG OF OLD CD!!
- Tom Waits 7/10 gets a slight listen, not as catchy as some of the other songs
-Macaulay McCulkin 9/10 decent song that you have to make sure to listen to before turning off the cd.
BUY THE CD....YOU WONT BE SORRY!!!
Fast foward to now, and they finally seem to come together as a band. All the instruments seem synced, and I can really start to enjoy Tim and Andrew's playing abilities. Thomas still has some amazing solos, but for the most part they have seemed to mature into a solid band. Tune into We Better Learn To Hotwire A Uterus, Tom Waits, and Macaulay McCulkin to hear Thomas at his best.
The only reason why I gave this cd a 4/5 is because of the fact that I have heard 7 of the 11 songs on the album. Tracks 1, 3, 5, and 9 are all remastered songs from their s/t, and tracks 7, 9, and 11 were all on a limited release demo.
Check this band out if your a fan of Chidios, Minus the Bear, Every Time I Die, The Mars Volta, At the Drive-In, etc.
