Technically, The Reckoning also has satisfying standards, in other words, it has the necessary industry standards in its recording and mix. The sound personality offers this song for rock, alternative rock, progressive, post, and even pop-rock listeners, due to its easy listening approach in it even though it’s totally progressive. This specific detail surprisingly reminded me of …And Justice For All album by Metallica, along with the instrumentation. And that’s crazy, I know.
Lastly, the only thing that I am not a fan of in the song was its “overly progressive rock” sound personality. For some reason, this decision turned the sound too much punk to my ears, reminds me of bands like Blink 182, even though WaterColour Matchbox is never anywhere close to it. This is subjective, I just would prefer to hear these guys with a darker metal sound (example; Ihsahn – Celestial Violence)
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am well impressed by WaterColour Matchbox. The Reckoning is a promising piece of work, properly represents WaterColour Matchbox.
One of the finest progressive rock songs around with additional alternative rock flavour, modern sound, and impressive instrumentation.
