The Juliana Theory has treaded the rock scene for eight years now, and finally have the condition for making it on their own. Their fourth album sees its release on TJT's own label, Paper Fist. Releasing music on one's own certainly has benefits such as total artistic freedom. This is definitely audible on Deadbeat Sweetheartbeat, since the music is both organic and emotive.

The theme of this record grasps tumultuous relationships. Hearts have been broken, so why not write an album about those unfortunate events? Since the personal lives have fueled the material, feelings are strongly present on the performances of this record. Musically the album varies nicely, although the music isn't flavoured with cross-genre efforts.

Deadbeat Sweetheartbeat was produced by John Travis (Social Distortion, Kid Rock). Joe Barresi (Queens of the Stone Age, Rancid), on the other hand, handled the mixing. Sonically the album is quite good, although at times a bit crowded on the low end.

All in all, The Juliana Theory's Deadbeat Sweetheartbeat is quite good album... however, it isn't exactly mind blowing in any way. I'll leave it up for you to decide whether "quite good" is enough or not.
