Amber Pacific

Amber Pacific
The Possibility & The Promise (2005)
This is possibly one of the world’s most perfect pop-punk records, and it is a promise Amber Pacific have always done well at fulfilling live. Every band that has ever wanted to pursue pop-punk needs to own this record and learn from it. The writing is very tight, production is excellent, and the band plays like a well-oiled machine. From the very first song you will declare your undying love for the fabulous and amazing Dango, drummer extraordinaire. The last band I remember noticing the drummer above anything else was Blink 182. Track 2 “Poetically Pathetic” is without a doubt my favorite track on the album but it’s all so good choosing a favorite is tough.
A friend recently reminded me of how great it is when someone turns you on to one of their favorite bands, so if you are new to Amber Pacific start with this one. I hope you love it as much as I do. I’m really hoping the band, whose core remains intact, survives the whole singer departure issue and goes on to top this disc with their new lineup.
