Review this album
Nov 30, 2011At first I thought that some of the tracks were filler tracks, but after multiple listens I've decided it is only because certain other songs are so strong on the album. While there are songs that people will undoubtedly pick out of the album to listen to more than others, a straight through listen of the album is exceptionally pleasing. There are never songs that distract from the overall experience other than to "wow" you. The lead singer has grown tremendously since Hold On Now, Youngster. While he used to have a much brighter sound, his vocals have matured and darkened as have his lyrics. I loved the first album but because of how bright it was, I could only take so many listens before I got a headache. It's hard to compare to the other albums as it is much different, but after multiple listens through I can safely say this is their best album yet.… Expand
Jun 18, 2012It's an impressive (but sad, as the title says) album. It starts with a bit of a hope, like something's going to work, but songs like the main titled song and Life Is A Long Time shows that nothing is good (like a misunderstood love). It's poetic, sometimes too sad, and despite of this album sounds very personal, it has wonderful tracks.
