The Pack AD – Dollhouse
VANCOVUER – Standing out as a two-piece rock outfit can be tough but the seventh album by these Vancouver veterans’ shows that it can be done. Dollhouse takes roaring riffs, catchy hooks and marries them to powerful vocals with lyrics that really capture the uncomfortable feeling of the here and now. There are stompers here but the Pack AD show that they can slow it down on the smoky “Because of You” and reverb soaked, mournful closer “I Tried” for a nice change of pace without losing their edge.
