Did you know…that this city is haunted? By ghosts? From broken homes? And that this could be anywhere in the world? Before you call ghostbusters, know that I’m talking about the latest from post-hardcore rockers Alexisonfire, “This Could Be Anywhere In The World,” from their 2006 album Crisis.
It’s a screamer of a track with alternating half-tempo and full-tempo rhythms in the verse, and an intense, yet fairly standard, chorus. The song also features odd, measure-long pauses in a couple of places, keeping the listener awake. But the powerful lyrics and drums that sound like machinery will also grip your attention through the length of the entire song. It’s powerful, heavy, and just a bit emotional. But it’s a great track, and you should definitely check it out.
Alexisonfire’s 2006 album Crisis is available now on Vagrant Records.
Their song, “This Could Be Anywhere In The World,” is available on the iTunes Music Store for $1.
