    His heart is worn clearly on his sleeve without becoming too overbearing and the final product is nothing short of profound.

    It's a dynamic performance, experimenting and excelling both at upbeat, fuzzy power-pop and at heartfelt, powerful ruminations on life and regret.

    Out in the Light has got him riding a smooth current.

    Out In The Light is a blustery, at times thrillingly unstable record, and comfortably matches the standards Pierszalowski achieved with Port O'Brien.

    The frontman's voice is largely clear and earnest with grit where necessary and a dash of Neil Young's nasal falsetto, the kind of delivery just begging for a listener's impassioned sing-along.

    This is a laid-back, non-pop, emotional-but-still-grounded album with a hazy and heavy sound.
