Album Review: Theory – Say Nothing

Theory continue to aim squarely for the radio on Say Nothing…

Theory Of A Deadman – or just plain old Theory, as they now wish to be known – are one of those bands who sell platinum in North America, thanks to sounding like the textbook example of radio rock. 

Seventh album Say Nothing doesn’t stray from this mission statement and, like predecessor Wake Up Call (2017), it’s a distinctly poppy affair, something abundantly evident as soon as opener Black Hole In Your Heart gets things going. The equally string-laden title-track is a little more engaging, having a slightly moodier bent to it, and the hooks of Ted Bundy are almost evilly catchy, but the likes of Strangers and Quicksand are wholly disposable. 

Frontman Tyler Connolly spends a little less time moping than previously, and throws in subjects such as domestic violence, racism and politics, but when the musical backing is this over-polished and ultimately mundane, it’s hard to care what he’s singing about. 

Verdict: 2/5
