The SideOne Dummy debut from Slick Shoes, after a lot of records on Tooth And Nail, is called Far From Nowhere and it sees the band changing direction from the S/t and the Wake Up Screaming albums, coming back to their melodic hardcore roots, rather than pop punk. Now, I was one of the few people who really thought the S/t album was just great, and so now I am left with a feeling of dismay in front of Far From Nowhere, because the record is different from what I used to like in Slick Shoes. The record is strictly melodic hardcore: fast songs, a lot of catchy guitar riffs and some complex structure of tunes make this album stand out in a place where melodic hardcore bands are just disappearing. On this record Slick Shoes do their job so well, playing tracks like Now Is The Time, or Carpenteria, with an awesome guitar solo intro, that show how these five guys can play their instruments well: stop&go's, changing of time and rhythm, and a good dose of originality. I can say that if I liked the more poppy punk side of this band, also their comeback to their roots is not bad at all, on the contrary, Far From Nowhere is one of the finest record of melodic hardcore I ever heard.
