  1. With albums as comfortable and likable as Twin Forks, there’s simply no reason to mourn Carrabba’s decision to give this new band his full focus for the time being.

    Twin Forks is an album of freedom and exploration, the sound of people taking risks for the sake of song. We like that.

    Although the music and lyrical content are more mature, what hasn’t changed is the familiar empathetic thrill of Carabba’s songwriting.

    His verge-of-a-breakdown vocals are as affecting as ever here, but there are times when he sounds not only upbeat, but downright perky. [22 Mar 2014, p.53]

    While everything is played with gusto and the songs themselves are well constructed, the album perhaps lacks enough surprises or detours from its sturdy formula to make it especially memorable. [May 2014, p.80]

    In short, if you're a Dashboard Confessional fan then you'll find plenty to enjoy here. Full-blown pretty-boy emotion dished out by a musician as adept at pulling the heart strings with big, simple feelings as anyone you might care to name.

    Twin Forks seems like a worthy vehicle for Carrabba's songs, but too much of this album panders to worn-out themes and clichés.
