it's a great record, but i miss the guitar driven rock. i love the big piano based songs they lean more toward on this record, but i really feel his voice shines when backed by aggressive pop/rock guitar riffs. i like it a lot, and i'm sure it'll grow on me, just not as big of an impact as i thought i thought it would have on me.
This album is simply breathtaking. I thought I heard the best hooks already from Jason, but he really upped the ante on this one. I, too, will miss the guitar driven rocker tracks, but the band truly makes up for it with the new style. More alternative than I'd like, but dear Lord this album is beautiful. After listening a few times, though, I'd really like "Go To Hell" deleted from the record.. it doesn't fit with the stories and overall vibe CTD puts off as a whole.
Two songs in and I already love it better than Lucky Street. Been a big fan of Jasons since the early days and hes come a long way in terms of writing and delivering that hook hes able to do oh so well. Well done I hope this brings them all the success they deserve and gives Jason and the band the recognition they deserve.
A lot more cohesive and a slower vibe but I fucking love it. Its exactly what I wanted and expected out of them. Cant wait to hear the deluxe version songs. As far as liking it more than Luck Street, time will tell.
