Devour the Day: Time and Pressure 2.0 review

Sometimes there will be a debut record that comes about that surpasses any and all expectations. It’s rare, but it does happen.

Devour the Day’s debut, Time and Pressure, is one of those albums. It did so well, in fact, that the band is set to re-release it with a new track, “Check Your Head” and an acoustic rendition of their smash hit, “Good Man.”

Anyone who’s seen these guys live can tell you they have everything it takes and they’re one of the complete bands in the game.

Time and Pressure 2.0 opens with “Respect,” a track that showcases exactly what everyone is talking about- good, solid, take-no-prisoners American rock and roll.

Their tenacity and charisma is indescribable and it shines through on tracks like “Respect,” “Good Man,” “Get out of My Way” and virtually every song on the album.

There are no low points here and there’s something to be said about that.

The new track, “Check Your Head,” has Devour the Day written all over it and has one of the catchiest choruses you’ll find. “Good Man” acoustic is exactly what we all wanted to hear- the track stripped down. It’s not a shot out of right field or anything like some acoustic versions are.

It’s good to see the band growing and expanding while not changing too much. This is a great re-release and worthy of a good listen.

Rating: 9/10
