Product Description

Internationally acclaimed band "Two Hours Traffic" hailing from Charlottetown Canada are set to release their first album in Australia called "Territory". The album is full of sunny pop gems for the heart and head. Territory, however also finds Two Hours Traffic discovering the shadows at the side of the road. Right from the get go this becomes apparent as the gold into lead alchemy of the rousing opener Noisemaker kicks in and by the time the title track tells its tale of disillusionment and betrayal you know you are settling in for a drive on the darker side. Indeed, songs such as Weightless One, Drop Alcohol, Wicked Side, and Lost Boys all explore the approaching dusk but just like the more hopeful tracks on the album (Happiness Burns, Sing A Little Hymn) they all lock into the close your eyes, sing along choruses and instantly memorable lyrics that have put Two Hours Traffic on the melodic map.

Great album. 15 great tracks. Takes over from Kings of Leon "Come Around Sundown" as my favorite recent album purchase.

HASH(0xa322a528) out of 5 stars Unabashedly Pop Oct. 26 2009

We went to the Toronto Film Festival and this band was on the cover of the givaway magazine. They are from Vancouver, British Columbia. The music is definitely for twinks (I'm an oldguy) but I found it really charming and fresh. There's a range of styles and techniques in the songs and most of them wear very well after several listenings. This album is great in the car. For me they most recall a band from the 80's called Crowded House that I liked very much. Have fun.
HASH(0xa5075618) out of 5 stars Not what I expected Jan. 3 2011

I had gotten 'Noisemaker' as a free download from Amazon and really liked it's catchy, alt-rock music and beat. I sampled the remainder of Territory and that samples made most of the track seem similar to 'Noisemaker', so I bought the album.

Unfortunately, the remainder of the album is much mellower, and kind of folk rock-ish (almost like it's a different band completly). Don't get me wrong, by those standards, it's a decent album, it's just not what I expected and not to my liking.

Personnally, I'd recommend downloading/purchasing 'Noisemaker' and forgetting about the rest of the album.
