Potential...not yet fully realized, but a talented singer and some fun songs  Mar 15, 2007
I had hopes before listening to In the Mean Time, because I enjoy female-fronted gothy or hard rock. I grew up with Pat Benatar and Heart, and I fell in love with Evanescence even before they went superhot on the charts, and I have a lesser appreciation (but still enjoyment) of Lacuna Coil and Within Temptation.

In Gretchen's case, the group has passion and ability, but the music is predictable and there's nothing particular standout. They are an adequate band that offers some good listening for fans of moody rock with feminine presence. But I kept hoping for the musicians to do something that knocked my socks off or for the lead singer to really reach and soar. I didn't get there.

"Diamonds", especially, proves particularly unimpressive, downright boring, despite the lyrics sure to please Christians.

"Daisy Chain" opens up with some nice energy and a faster-pace, but then turns totally conventional and predictable. Still probably my favorite on the cd, just cause you got good vocals and fun energy. "I don't wanna be your daisy chain around your neck/ You loved me once, and then you forget." Ah, sorta forgettable lyrics here. But punchy and likable.

"Know You" seems to promise a darker turn, moody and the vocals a bit petulant at first, then strengthens up, but the musicians aren't up to the task (or ingenuity) of surrounding and lifting the vocals. They disappoint, even though the lead singer does a creditable job of expressing herself. The guitar work needs to meet the greater challenge of Mia's vocals.

"Breathe," pumps up the tempo, but at every point where you think--ah, here they'll take off--they don't. Youthful energy is there, passion is there in the vocalizing, and it's a song many will like, I'm sure, and one of the funner ones on the cd. I still kept wishing there was a really live and kicking guitar here to duel and ally with the vocals.

"Fading" starts out promising (and very Evanescence-ish), and one hopes for it to work out with verve, and some verve does come to the fore. The singer, Mia, stretches up with her voice and doesn't bobble in the pleading chorus. Nice. It's an enjoyable song, but a total copycat, and at no time does it break out and give itself its own, unique sound. It's still a respectable performance. "I"m fading inside, lately I cannot find myself."

And that last bit, "I cannot find myself" is a problem I see for Gretchen's debut.

I'll keep my eye (ear?) on this group. GRETCHEN may simply need time to mature into their own unique sound and to experiment with fresher, more complex interplays of instruments. I have hopes, because I see the potential there.

I would disagree with the comparisons with The Benjamin Gate--a band that had some truly outstanding songs that caught your attention and hung on and vocalizations that felt fresh on several tunes. (Although in the more reaching, higher levels of her voice, yes, Mia reminds me of BG's gal singer.) I do see faded echoes of Evanescence, but without the soaring power of Evanescence (particularly on that outstanding debut record of theirs).

For now, GRETCHEN impresses me with its basic foundation and potential: They're promising but need to go to the next levels beyond the semi-copycat sound that hasn't found its true, deep, surprising footing. Yet. And I do think the singer is very good. I enjoy her voice and she outshines the songs and the other musicians.

I'll keep watching and listerning for their breakthrough, which I truly hope comes...and comes soon. This gal hasn't met her needs or quota of gal-goth-rock.

This Hard Rocked Edge Sound grab me right away. Great female vocals and awesome band behind it. Some music takes time to grow on me but this one pulled me into it at the very first listen. I am looking forward to their next endeavor.
In the Mean Time  Mar 24, 2006
This band rocks. If you like Pillar or Skillet this has a simular sound. Only difference is it has a female singer. This can also be compared to Benjamin Gate with more of an edge. Only 4 stars because only a few really rocky songs that I like. Gretchen has upside potential. Hopefully they continue releasing cds. If they keep being produced by Travis Wyrick they can't go wrong. All they need is to tour with a couple larger name bands to get their name out. I'd be about the only one at the show to see them.
6 stars,actually!!!!!!!maybe even 7!!!!!  Feb 17, 2006
