Japanese Version featuring a Bonus Track
Though this semi-anguished boy-metal group claims that lock-jawed Helmet is a primary influence (and layers of frayed guitar chords support that claim) Trust Company are better characterized as a simpler and slightly more heartfelt relative of Linkin Park. Minus the turntables and digital tricks, but laden with revealing lyrics, a wide guitar sound, and thumping rock rhythms, Trust Company charge fearlessly through the gaping hole in the pop landscape left by more famous contemporaries. Thanks to Linkin producer Don Gilmore, their major-label debut is smoother than those of Papa Roach and Puddle of Mudd. To their detriment, they're sometimes lulled by the slickness of their polished hooks. Like the title implies, the ride is more impressive when the band dares to veer beyond its own neutrality. --Ian Christe

It's not a common thing for me to say that only half or less of any CD albums I buy are any good, but TRUSTcompany showed me that it's quite possible to produce an album with no "less than great" quality tracks. Each song is like every other, and yet each has their own differences at the same time, which is a great thing unlike others bands I've heard... (cough* cough* Blink* cough*).
Also, I think it's a nice touch that TRUSTcompany didn't have any swearing in its entire album, which does a lot to get it out to younger kids who are curious or already like metal. Explicit cussing really isn't needed at all if you put the right lyrics into your tunes, and congrats on that one too TRUST.
Downfall - The 1st single off this cd that everyone has heard. Enough said, this song rules. *****(out of *****)
Falling Apart - I heard this song on the radio once, and it was the main song that got me to buy this cd. This song is less rock, but has a great chorus and can get stuck in your head. *****
Hover-Most people consider this the best song off the cd, I don't but it's one of the best. I really love this song, I haven't really heard anything like it and that makes it good. *****
Running From Me - This was the 2nd single off their cd, I only saw the music video once, and didn't like the song at first, but I have the cd of course, and this song is great. *****
Slipping Away - This is my 2nd favorite song. This song is awesome, the song is slow, but when it gets to the chorus, you can rock out to it. This is an amazing song and one I really enjoy. *****
Figure 8 - This is my least favorite song. I dont really listen to it much, it's an ok song, but just not one of my favorites from them. ***
The Fear- And we're back to yet another great song. This is a slow and beautiful song. Just listen to it once, and you'll love it. *****
Deeper Into You - A pretty good song. I like this song, but I wouldn't give it 5 stars. The vocals are a bit off imo. Oh well. Other than that, the song is good, worth listening to. ***1/2.
Drop To Zero - My friend loves this song, saying it's the best, and it is pretty good, but not the best imo.Read more ›
Anyway, enough about crappy music, When I first heard Downfall I was amazed. I didn't get the album right away which i should've but eventually i did. Oh what a great day that was. I played this album constantly for over two months STRAIGHT and i didn't even get tired of it. Almost Every other album in my collection I have gotten sick of in just a matter of a few weeks.
Now though some of the songs do sound a little similar they each have a beautiful melody. These guys sure know how to make some catchy music let me tell you. Other bands should strive to cook up great melodies like Trust Company.
Every song gets better and better and better. This band is, Like many great bands, overly underrated. But really who cares what people think, I don't.
WEll anyway i'm done with this review, all i can say is that this band is one of the greatest new bands to punch the rock scene in it's mainstream abused face.
And let me just say that I can still pop this cd in and listen to it straight through without even touching the skip button.
THANK YOU TRUST COMPANY
The songs are catchy, yet unique and distinct in their sound and composition. Though the lyrics are simple, they convey powerful emotions, and ones that everyone can relate to. Kevin Palmer's voice is mesmerizing, and communicates the emotions of the lyrics with incredible skill yet without losing the hard rock essence of the songs. Some of my favorite tracks include: "Downfall," "Falling Apart," "Hover," "The Fear," and "Take It All." However, there isn't a single song on this CD that I skip over. All tracks have their own appeal.
I've noticed that some people have related Trust Company to Linkin Park, and I would tend to disagree. I'm not much of a fan of Linkin Park, and I find that Trust Company's sound is much more accessible and melodic than that of Linkin Park.
Overall, I feel that this is a band that deserves much more recognition and attention than they get. My CD collection wouldn't be complete without this album, and I can't wait to hear what they come out with next! Buy this CD!

OK. One thing I don't like is how these guys are compared to Linkin Park. Though both bands have equally bad lyrics, this cd contains more intelligent instrument work. Read morePublished on June 13 2004 by tim
