Review: CIV – It’s Not Your Fault (Rock)

This review covers the alternative rock track CIV – It’s Not Your Fault.

This track was released in 1998 on the album Thirteen Day Getaway. We previously reviewed another track from this album. That track was Living Life. That track got a great score, so we thought we’d try another track from this album. Like Lvingin Life, this track also made an appearance on the game Road Rash 64.

The track starts off with a high hat. The rest of the track along with a bass guitar comes in. From there, the lead guitar joins the track along with the vocals which takes the track into a short verse.

From there, the vocals take the track into the first main chorus. The vocals then get a delay effect as some creepy guitar effect is thrown in. This is backed by a bass guitar.

After that, the vocals then lead the track into the next verse. This is backed by the full compliment of sound. Right after that, the vocals take the track into another main chorus. An instrumental section caps the main chorus.

From there, the vocals come back as the track pulls back. Another brief delay effect is added before the vocals extend the main chorus. After a very short instrumental, the track ends.

One thing I do like about this track is the vocals. They do work quite well in giving this track that punk rock vibe. The effects added to them give this track a lot of great variety on top of it all.

In addition to this, the guitars work quite well. They pull back when they need to and they go on full force when they need to. I also really like how when the track pulls back, the bass guitar is shown off nicely. It gives this track brief moments of down time to help punctuate the quieter parts nicely.

My only complaint with this track is that it is a bit on the short side. It isn’t a huge deal as this track does manage to offer a lot throughout. Still, it is noticeably short.

Overall, this is a very solid track. It has great vocals with nicely added effects. The guitars work quite well. Even the bass guitar stands out nicely in the quieter parts, giving this track some nicely done variety. While it is a short track, it still manages to pack a punch. So, a very solid track all around.
