Listener - Wooden Heart

Reviewed by: tortags (09/12/12)
Listener - Wooden Heart
Record Label: Unsigned
Release Date: July 6, 2010


This Group has been around for a while, and unnoticeably taken their poems and turned them into a very different genre. I can honestly say, this band has no one genre, but many and some undetermined. Wooden Heart is a Great Addition to Previous Full Length Entries, and Leads to Brighter Future Entries.

The Album Kicks of with "You Have Never Lived, Because You Have Never Died" Breaking out The Banjo, and some creative Description: An Interesting Start to WH . Then The next Two: "I Don't Want to Live Forever" and "Most Roads Lead to Home" are Questioning the Very Existence of Life and Home, With Creative Rifts and Changings of Pace, But nothing stands out as much until the Title Track.

"Wooden Heart” is a Very Inspiring Song (In My Mind) and Just The First Words Caught My Attention: "We’re all born to broken people on their most honest day of living..."; It Made Me Think Things that I can honestly say, if this song hadn't shown up on the YouTube Suggestion list, I wouldn't of ever Re-thought something’s I was thinking. This Line Was in my Most Stand out Lines of Lyrics, than in all my Years of Music: "...and pray that it gets better, but it won't or at least I don't believe it wills..."

"Falling in Love with Glaciers" and "Failing is Not Just for Failures" is Slowing the Pace, and Bringing a More "Ringy" Vibe in. "Building Better Bridges", "Seatbelt Hands", and "These Hands Weren't Meant for Us" are Increasingly Depressing and From Start to Finish WH is Going from Hopeful, to Down to Earth and 'Realistic.' "You Were a House on Fire" is a Very Descriptive Song, Explaining (In My Mind) the Speaker's View of Life, and how he sees things; "Save Up Your Hopes, Friends" is the Last Track to this 'Different' Album and Explains Manipulation of Weak Minded People (In My Mind) and They Need to See Something Bright in Order to Be Stronger-Minded.

This Album Holds a Great Place in My Top 10 Albums in MY Greatest Albums of the Decade. It Has a Meaning to me That I Cannot Clearly Define, and It's Value Will Be Longed as I Try to Figure it out.

I like this review, I feel like the capitalization distracted from it alot, but still, I totally agree with you on it being of the top ten albums of the decade. Dan and Chris are great artists, and awesome people! Love this album.

Either You're Being Sarcastic or Just a Hippocrite, But if You Can't Read Maybe You Should Back to Elementary School; It'll Help You a LOT in Life.

Correction: I Didn't Capitalize Everything; I Missed a Couple Words Here and There, and Words Like "in, it, the" I Did NOT Capatilize.

Laywered.

This band grows on you so quickly. At first, I just felt awkward listening to this band (and I'm a Christian and a fan of spoken-word bands like mewithoutYou). But, I kept giving them a chance and I'm glad I did. Really thought-provoking lyrics and so much emotion on this album.
