From the first few cuts I heard from this album, I knew this band was brewing something worthy of attention. I had high hopes for this production - and I was not disappointed. From it's brass intro to it's bluegrass ending, The Wedding's "Polarity" will give your ears a musical banquet that will leave you begging for more. Simply put: Rock just doesn't come any better than this. The guitars are crunchy and thick, the bass line is addictive, the beats are fresh and the vocals amazing. It's everything you've come to expect from today's alt-rock recording artists - and then some. The Wedding adds a few features that demonstrate true musicianship and musical talent like brass, bagpipes, strings and piano.
The lyrics of this album are simply amazing - deep, witty and divinely inspired. "Say Your Prayers" is, personally, one of the best written songs as of late, but they all have that one line that just goes beyond your ears and sticks to your brain and finds it's way into your heart. So, whether you're banging your head to one of their harder rock songs or letting the softer, piano-oriented songs caress your ears, you know you've experienced something else. This is a fantastic album with amazing quality (the production is fantastic) and it also possesses a quality that's rare these days - playability. I still haven't skipped one track - every song is great.
So, if you're looking for something fresh in an all-too-common genre, this is the place where you stop looking.
