Where We Started
About the Album After reaching the finals of the 2007 Good Times Magazine Long Island Music Festival, Last Second Chances headed into rehearsals to begin pre-production on what would become their freshman effort. As the band prepared to record, the pre-production process took on a life of it's own and LSC decided to self-produce and track Where We Started in it's entirety. The ability to independently record and produce the album afforded LSC the freedom to create an eclectic mix of tracks by combining earthy tones with a hard rocking backbone. Where We Started opens with the frenetic, yet soaring, "Calm Down", and is followed by the crowd-favorite rock-march "Come After Me" and the unsure, but sure-about-love, love song "Emily." Truly speaking to Last Second Chances' versatility, each track is wide-ranging in style and feel, yet the album's themes remain cohesive throughout. Main themes of first love, longing for more of what's gone, and overcoming one's fears are present on a head-to-tail listen of Where We Started. Other tracks featured on the album are the haunting "Here We Go Again," bass-driven anthem "Light It Up," Sunny Day Real Estate inspired "Turn Away" and the steamy, sultry "Tonight." Where We Started was mixed by Marc Bauman (Melville, NY) and mastered by John Scrip of Massive Mastering (Chicago, IL).
