The skill & satisfying crunch of any great folk rock track. The riffs have a simplicity that lets you fully access the sentiment & soul of the song.
Something a little bit different, a breakaway from the political norm & a recording that lays bare a more personal & somewhat vulnerable side to the band.
As a musician, it’s impossible to question the level of skill Chris Murphy has achieved through playing & exploring sound so creatively & so consistently.
The grit & the realness is beautiful, the effect of the songs is multiplied due to these performances & this inherent, undeniable passion.
The raw energy of punk rock with the easy going realness of acoustic folk. It’s an organic sound that generally comes across as part of a live show.
It’s really just a beautiful recording, a great song, hopefully one that has a positive influence on all who hear it. A pleasure to experience.
It makes you crave a live show – the instrumental flickers & the feeling expressed throughout would likely reach even higher plains in a real time setting.
A great album to wake up to. A passionate & talented group of musicians. Each song offers this entire story line & mood to effectively reflect the concept.
