And they won't get it. Unfortunately, Mineral broke up shortly after the release of this album. This is it folks, and we should be glad for what we do have. Luckily, they did live on in the forms of Gloria Record (Chris Simpson and Jeremy Gomez), Pop Unknown (Gabe Wiley), and Imbroco (Sdcott McCarver and Gabe Wiley). Definitely check out all those bands (and my reviews for them). Arlight, onto the album.
Basically what it comes down to is the simple, yet intricate, guitar work on this album makes it. It's amazing. There's nothing else that needs to be said about it.
But that doesn't help you.
"Lovelettertypewriter" opens the album, and is almost reminiscent of tuning guitars. Why would this ever sound good you're asking? Because we get Chris Simpson's beautiful, raw, vocals overtop. Bands don't write like this anymore, and thats sad, because it works, and it works well.
The transition into "Palisade" is unforgettable. It's definitely one of the stand out tracks also. The simple "start-stop" beginning really draws you in as a listener.
Each song could have it's own description, but it's not necessary. All that's necessary it that you do yourself a favor and purchase this album, if just for the song "unfinished" by itself.
