    This second album is less of a record than an experience. You truly get a sense of cosmic alignment here.

    The songs on this album are echoing, but not distant; they connect on a personal level, and then pull the listener along in a mighty heave.

    Not a very good album. For an album that goes out of its way to be perceived as not just another run of mill rock album (lavish strings and synths, massive drums, long and sustained whammied guitar solos, etc) it really just falls flat on its face and is quite boring and average. There was very little substance and I didn't feel the need to ever listen to this album again. Full Review »

    FINALLY After years of dull indie rock, we have an album that breaks free of all the genre trappings, does it's own thing and just sticks it's soul out there for everyone to see. I love this album.. in a sea of mediocrity it stands out as spectacular from the first note to the last. I hope The Joy Formidable are around for a long time because this album is sublime.

    Poorly produced. The drums, strings, and keys all sound digitally done. Worst of all is the way they ruined her voice. She seems to have recorded a bunch of tracks for each vocal in different keys, but they are all mixed at the same level so you can't really hear how she actually sounds. A big step down from The Big Roar. This is what happens when bands self produce. Full Review »
