Through Title Fight’s brief career they have really shown such a great progression with each of their three full length releases. As I was listening to this record, I was trying to place my finger on what it sounded like or what it reminded me of. I try not to do this because I think it takes away from the record, yet I still did it anyway. The band has gone from a pop punk sound with The Last Thing You Forget to a more alternative rock sound with Shed. With Floral Green, it took me a couple of listens to realize that this is a modern 90′s rock record. It has elements that made Nada Surf, the Violent Femmes, and the Pixies have the sound they did. What Title Fight does with that 90′s alternative sound is put it on steroids. Floral Green has the same Title Fight lyrics from the past that deal with relationships and alienation but the guitar and bass tone have such a grungy, distorted sound. The record goes from a hauntingly slow pace into a super high energy hardcore sound and then back. The one thing that Title Fight does best is they way they flirt with their hardcore sound without becoming fully a hardcore band. Title Fight is one of the young bands that still restores my faith in good music that is still being made.
