  1. Having complete freedom and reign with this record, Eisley was able to take its musical element to richer and grander heights.

    Currents is probably Eisley’s most calculated and complete full-length album to date, and one that takes the band’s obvious desire to experiment and expand on their sound (which was already quite evident in their 2011 album The Valley) to the next level.

    All told, this is hardly a bad addition to Eisley's burgeoning catalog—their development is obvious, and there are enough quality songs present to improve that theoretical "greatest hits" collection for their live show.

    Eisley rarely come off as cloying, and while Currents may require a little more patience from the listener than on previous outings, it's well worth the investment.

    It’s the first Eisley album that fails to improve on its predecessor, recapitulating earlier ideas while seemingly in retreat.

    Eisley is one of the bands out there who keeps their evolution in music straight from time to time. Once again, they keep it that way with "Currents". In comparison to "The Valley", "Currents" has managed to assert something new to the listeners. It sounds and tastes different, and that is a good thing. With its Sucré's (Stacy DuPree-King's side project) influences, Eisley can do better with its harmony and weirdly beautiful music. All in all, "Currents" is my cup of tea. Expand
