REVIEW: Bleeding Rainbow - Yeah Right
On their third full length album, and first under their new name, Philadelphia's Bleeding Rainbow has drawn elements from their prior LPs. Thus, Yeah Right has shoegaze tracks and more straightforward rock-pop tracks. But there is nothing wrong with having your artistic feet in more than one camp, so long as the songs are good. And given the expansion of the group from a duo to a quartet, it isn't surprising that they still are working on styles. Accordingly, if you are a shoegaze pop fan, Yeah Right delivers enough tracks in that vein to fill your needs. If your preferred musical dose is a more rock oriented pop, tracks such as "Pink Ruff", "Drift Away" and "Waking Dream" should strike your fancy. And as I feel those are among the better tracks on the album, I've included them below.
My impression is that Bleeding Rainbow isn't the finished article. But on evidence here, there is enough ability to get to where they want to go. In the meantime, there is plenty on Yeah Right to like where they are right now.
