West Of Corey’s latest release takes the emotive, intensity-building, epic-progressive approach to building a powerful story-line and a beautifully melodic ambiance around listeners.
The lyrics manage to stand tall throughout Course of Things to Come, guided by the simple and mostly acoustic sound of a guitar and a single rhythm. The band’s leading vocalist offers a humble yet passionate delivery that lets these easy rhymes kick in with familiarity and intrigue alike; thus, the lyrics sink in quickly, the scene is set, and the mind wanders as prompted.
A gorgeously poetic, intense yet notably light piece of music and songwriting, with a provocative message that resounds thanks to the repeat of that line as the music glides towards its end. Really nicely done, a pleasure to have appear in the playlist in just about any setting.
