For a band that has been around for close to twenty years, His Name is Alive is still primarily unknown. I think this largely lies in the band's inability to remain consistent to one genre over the course of an album, let alone over the course of their career. The band's most recent album Detrola has the odd difficulty of including eerie electronica and chamber ballads before moving onto straight up pop music. HNIA is many things but one thing they are not is consistent. While it doesn't make for a solidly listenable album, each song more than stands on its own. Main man Warren Defever is notorious for his perfectionist production practices, and Detrola is not in short supply of hits. "Get Your Curse On" sounds more like a leftover hit from the Motown era with its smooth beats and horns that'll have you doing the twist before it hits the chorus, whereas "Here Forever Always" wouldn't have sounded out of place on the most recent Hot Chip album.
