    I don't hate Coldplay as most as much of my other alt-rock loving friends. Parachutes is just a straight-up great album, and even their worst records usually contain a great single or two. More often than not, Coldplay are just bland instead of actively bad. But there is one thing I hate them for which is the way they convinced people that radio pop-rock had to be almost utterly devoid of...rock. But on their new EP, When Night Becomes Day, Bay Area rockers Finish Ticket hit the sweet spot of everything great about the first two Coldplay albums while still finding room for unvarnished rock & roll.

    We have the exclusive premiere of When Night Becomes Day, and with it's arena ready hooks and wall of sound guitars, it (and Finish Ticket) represent the best of what contemporary pop-rock can be. Opening track, "Scavenger," starts out with a pulsating synth line, but the soaring vocals center the track immediately, and it isn't long before the guitars arrive which will draw in even the most hesitant rock fan. And on the rest of the record, whether it's "Wrong" or "Color," the album effortlessly sets up an interplay between pop hook sensibilities and and major rock sounds.
