中文介绍几乎找不到，不过如果看过《恐怖大师》的人也许还会记得第一集里面插入的那首《if ever》便是这张专辑的了，还有csi里面有一集也曾经用他的《drive away》做背景音乐，所以总体来说专辑的质量还是上乘，
Let me just start by saying that I have a great deal of respect for Jonah Matranga. I really enjoy Onelinedrawing, Far, and his other projects. His latest endeavor, Gratitude, has released their self-titled debut, and it is a solid release. Jonah’s new project is a pop-rock outfit in the vein of Jimmy Eat World, but with more aggressive vocals. The songs are plenty catchy, the music is solid, and the vocals stellar as is to be expected from Jonah. But there is seriously something missing in almost all of the songs. The rock is straight-forward, the melodies extremely radio-friendly, but the final result is quite thin and hollow. So much of Gratitude’s music just lacks depth.
The opener “Drive Away” is my personal favorite on the album, beginning with a strong vocal intro into an extremely catchy and head-nodding chorus. The music hits you in the face with its blatant hooks and safe transitions and is quite enjoyable at first listen. A combination of electric and acoustic guitar balances nicely together to give off a very accessible vibe. The following track “Last” firmly establishes that Gratitude is a band that is very much vocal driven. Jonah’s voice flows freely and strongly above thin instrumentation with pretty basic parts. There are really no layered guitar parts or harmonies here, Gratitude is one thing – straight up radio rock. After a nice chorus, Jonah cries/screams out “Shut up and fall,” the first real example of aggressiveness on the record. That’s the thing with Gratitude that I just can’t decide upon – I love it when Jonah shows raw emotion and varies his vocal stylings, but the music never really changes as far as tones of aggressiveness. I found myself wishing that the drumming would be a little harder, have a few more fills, desiring some more “angry” – if you will – instrumentation.
