Opening track "Stay" is the best example of this modern rock/pop feel on the album, and it includes some excellent guitar work. The album's title track, "Autumn Heart", follows in this vein, and has perhaps the best use of dynamics on the project. It's also perhaps the best produced track.
'The more mellow moments are found on "Learning To Survive", "We Are One", and "In The Hardest Times". Lyrically, "In The Hardest Times" could possibly be a partial testament to what the Belonozhkos have faced as a family, as musicians, and as Christians, with lines like:
"I will not back down, will over come
I won't give up
I will not sit back when troubles come
I won't give in"
One rather interesting tune is "King Of The Parking Lot". Musically, it sounds like something Neil Young would have written, and has the everyman/working man theme about what it takes to get by daily. I might be completely off base here, but I have a strong suspicion the song could be about the brother's father. If not, it's still a good tribute to the working man.

Listened to the album| Posted February 15, 2017
Finally I have listened to this album.
What I love the most about it is that both melody and lyrics to the song are in harmony. Not empty words as in most songs, but deep and profound. By the way, who is a writer of the lyrics? Previous albums differ from that one in relation to the lyrics. I guess this is a pro-essay-writer who cooperates with the band.
