A little more rough around the edges than most emo bands, Long Island's Deciding Tonight play the kind of punk that you'd hear passing by one of the many stages on the Warped Tour on their 11-track offering THE DELUSIONIST. Eerie keyboards a la Motion City Soundtrack help to accentuate the My Chemical Romance meets The Used flavored "The Downside of Weightlessness", while the bouncy "The End of an Error" and the ultra-catchy bass-driven "When it Was A Game" sound as if coming from the loins of fellow Island rockers Taking Back Sunday, Bayside and Brand New. This disc does tread many familiar waters that many may never want to revisit, but if you think you may enjoy a well-structured screamo act with a few slick-sounding tricks up their sleeve, give this sextet a gander.
