You Are Here — You Are Here
(YAH 1, 1996, CDEP)

You Are Here Cover art

You Are Here are a new band out of Toronto with this eponymous EP as their debut. First off, I should point out that while a keyboard player is present, this quintet have a much newer and younger sound that has more to do with bands like the Chili Peppers or Faith No More than Yes or Marillion. Faith No More would be my strongest point of comparison, though singer Ed Beliczynski avoids any rapping. Songs like "Love and Other Atrocities" and "Twisting in the Wind" bop along to solid funk bass lines while "To the Sun" has an almost naive sixties retro-psych grooviness to it. Overall I'd say You Are Here should find an audience amongst the mosh set with their aggro-funk attack. However, those who enjoy the simple pleasures of a tight, energy-packed modern rock band should find plenty here to enjoy as well. Recommended.
