The Vein - _Under the Circumstance_
by: Pedro Azevedo (3 out of 5)
This is a demo that shows a lot of work, due to its considerable length and to the instrumental quality and tightness found throughout it. In fact, this is all that justifies my rating, for this Portuguese band's demo _Under the Circumstance_ is definitely not 'my' kind of music. The Vein's music is soft, even rather mainstream-ish at times; their best moments occur when the cello comes in, adding a very different feel to their music and taking it to a higher level. But moments like the "Oh baby, you and I" chorus in track #3 really make it impossible for me to enjoy this kind of music, despite its good moments. If, like myself, you don't feel comfortable in the clarity that emanates from this kind of music and would rather remain in obscurity, then it's highly unlikely that you'd like this. However, if you do enjoy the kind of light atmosphere and music found here, then this is a very worthy demo for you to check out.
