Remembering This Day and Age
06/30/11 at 04:22 AM by Gregory Robson
I've been listening to a lot of This Day and Age this week. I'm not even sure if I can put my thoughts about them into accurate and coherent sentences. I had the privilege of seeing this band at least a half-dozen times. Never once did they disappoint.

Though I don't own their debut album, Always Leave the Ground and The Bell and the Hammer remain as important to my heart, my psyche and my development as a person as many of my favorite albums. All their songs dot the landscape of some of my most fond memories and some of my worst moments.

Jeff Martin's lyrics were never the stuff of legends and often bordered on saccharine and maudlin. That being written, they still hit at a place everyone could relate to. A voice like his comes along every once in awhile and it was those two factors combined with inimitable music that made the band so truly memorable. I've tried in vain to find a band that recreates this sound but to no avail. In the end I've given up searching.

You don't mess with an original.
