The glory of this album is, it spares nothing - there are deep reflections on all kinds of situations in life. Personally, I think it needs to be much more recognized on Jamendo! What hit me while listening to the album the first time through was "Wow, this sounds a bit like Five for Fighting mixed with Foo Fighters". That could indeed be way off, but that kind of sound is hard to ignore. There's a boldness that's evident right from the start, most especially in "Cindy" - don't listen to this track if you're sensitive to hearing a song about a little girl getting murdered. Why do I recommend it anyway? Because music ought to reflect the best and the worst in us, no matter how difficult it is to get it out. To write and play music that puts us face-to-face with our best and worst sides is admirable. If you need some songs to pick you up, try "Motion Pictures" and "Go and Get It". I've playlisted them A TON.
