by the way, i really do hate puns... i just cant help myself sometimes.
ive got hooked on the classic crime since albatross and this album just feeds my addiction more, its musically solid and moving, lyrically its brutally honest and transparent... even raw at some points, i love the way the vocalist yells ( not screams ) to get that edge of rock on some of the more intese songs. and one of the songs has cowbell in it, i mean can it get any better?
the only reason i took half a star off is because i sense in this album that the crimes sound is adopting some pop elements, its not to the point where this album could be labeled pop, i just hear that overall the songs are alot lighter then albatross and i honestly wish they would remain rock.
so overall, a great mix of albatross rock and seattle sessions slower emotional music, all of it is lyrically intelligent honest and brutally acurate to life in general. i cant wait for the next release!
