I can say this with all seriousness: Limited Edition’s latest track does not rock you like the hurricane its name professes. And being from North Carolina, I know my fair share about how that feeling of bewilderment mixed with exhilaration feels. This isn’t it. The Hurricane here is more reflective of a nice stroll along the shore at the beginning of summer with a bit of high tide roughing the sand — pleasant and ticklish.
But the thing is, this high school group from Port Washington, Wisconsin, is pretty stellar in other areas. The blend is top notch. The arrangement is fun and twee throughout. The dynamics range from soft intensity to solid rocking in the choruses. The drumming is fat and lush. The production quality is rich while never seeming inorganic.
What gets funny is the enunciation (well actually the lack of) of certain lyrics. It took me a while to figure out enough lyrical phrases so that I could Google this song. OH, it’s a MISTERWIVES song?! Wow, okay. “Weedoh neederneeter blah da vee” is actually supposed to be “We don't care if we're the only”. That makes a little more sense, and granted the line is not much clearer in the original. The clarity the group delivers later on in the track sits ironically on the tongue.
Yet Limited Edition is a group to keep watching. While Hurricane isn't the best representation of the group's demonstrated strengths, it is still pretty good. For the best, make sure you hear the group's amazing cover of Passionflower.
