    McLamb's vocals still sometimes fall the wrong side of the impassioned/histrionic divide, but this is a far more coherent album than its predecessor. [Sep 2013, p.104]

    Although punchy, vindictive standouts “First Shot” and “Faithbreaker” do manage to elucidate some tender scar tissue, The Love Language would be wise to look back to their earlier offerings, lest they fall victim to superfluity and excess.

    For a man standing behind the curtain, McLamb is strangely an impotent ruler and wizard, at least here on Ruby Red.
