Pillar's previous album 'Fireproof', featuring a ubiquitous punch-the-air single of the same name, brought them major mainstream attention from MCA and latterly Geffen. Now, it seems due to Geffen's unwillingness to properly promote the band, Pillar have returned to their original home of Flicker Records in the US. Perhaps it is of little surprise, given these to-ings and fro-ings, that the new record's title is 'Where Do We Go From Here'. Pillar have always leaned towards nu-metal, and while these stylings remain, particularly on "Hypnotized", "Frontline" and "Dirty Little Secret", this album showcases alongside the taut guitar lines, a stronger sense of melody than previously put forward by Pillar. Definitely a grower, this album will eventually lodge itself in your head with its memorable choruses, although there's nothing of the lyrical incisiveness of "Fireproof" on this set. "Bring Me Down" is a sure-fire radio hit though. "Rewind" deserves a mention too, as Pillar tackle the slow-burning lighters in the air tune to good effect. An album to investigate, but give it time to grow on you!
