    I am not that familiar with BRMC, but after hearing one of the group members on Sound City I decided to give this album a try. I enjoy the riffs and mature depth of the lyrics. This has a dark alley feel with a grungy tinge. A nice discovery.

    Specter At The Feast, which was released 18 of March, 2013, should be listened as a goodbye from a close person, That person is Michael Been, the sound engineer of the band and also The Call former leader and the father of the bass player, Robert Levon Been. The band mates, Peter Hayes and Leah Shapiro, gather together and wrote an album of mourning, adopting more realistic standpoint.

I found the album very joyful, maybe because it was made from the bottom of the heart

    BRMC have transcended a past that was extremely full of the past and arrived in the present. [Apr 2013, p.93]

    There's no real transformation here, but given the subject matter, the band sounds especially urgent, even for BRMC.

    Melancholy pervades the dreamy "Fire Walker" and "Returning," while creeping darkness duels with a dramatic chorus on "Funny Games."
