A sublime follow-up., 26 Jan. 2011
It was with great trepidation that I started listening to the criminally underrated Shady Bard's second offering. I wasn't to be disappointed.
'Trials' is the perfect answer to the notorious second album syndrome that many bands fall afoul of. Any fans of their previous album 'From The Ground Up' can rest assured that while there's nothing quite of the calibre of 'Penguins', what they will get is a solid set of songs from which there are no duds. Even the two minute instrumental 'The Dream' is so beautifully executed that you can't fault its inclusion. Top notch stuff.
