During their relatively short time in the music business, Atom Smash has had a fair share of ups and downs, yet this resilient Florida quintet forge forward with a formulaic hodgepodge hard rock endeavor entitled BEAUTIFUL ALIEN. This unit’s latest 11-track album features everything from crunchy Sevendust-esque bounce (“Square 1”) to strong ties to mainstream hard rock sensibilities running from grunge to electronica (“2012 Baby”, “Hangman”) to wistful Shinedown-like acoustic rock (“Cocaine Angel”). Bolstered by a vast understanding of dynamics, this album displays the knack for creating captivating hooks without sacrificing melody (“Hole in My Head”). Combining a strong mix of tender and tough tunes that wouldn’t sound out of place in between the likes of Incubus, Nonpoint, and Chevelle, Atom Smash the songwriting chops and versatility to appeal to a broad base of hard rock fans. -Mike SOS
