A Look at my CD Collection, part 5: Alexisonfire


Alexisonfire is a so-called post-hardcore group from St. Catharines, Ontario.  I picked up a copy of Watch Out! for a few dollars a while back.  I listen to it from time-to-time, but it's not in high-rotation because it isn't the kind of thing you would throw on while kicking back with your favourite novel or when hosting a dinner party.  But, it's rather good for the iPod.  For some reason, I prefer listening to music that has an edge on the iPod.  Maybe it gets me in motion and gets me there faster, unless I am on a train of plane.  In those cases, I usually select something quieter, like Brian Eno or maybe something like Bob Dylan.

By the way, the group is pronounced like "Alexis On Fire."

Their sound vaguely reminds me of the Cancer Bats. I don't usually listen to this kind of thing but my son went through a hard rock phase. Yes, he's only 3. Now he's more into AC/DC.

I really liked one of their songs back in high school, but I can't remember the name.
