I read Big Jim's review and he really has nailed this. It is the meaning of the word eclectic!
The combination of styles is considerable, a bit of everything and full of drive and energy.
I could waste a lot of time making a list of comparisons and would agree with Big Jims but add several more - it's rock, it's poppy, it's avant-garde, it's folksy; it's heavy.
The amazing thing is - it works so well; these guys have crafted a truly amazing album.
The vocals are really good - lots of rich melodies and harmonies, while the instrumentation is, at times, wonderfully sublime. There is gentility and power by turn.
Like BJ, I'd feel hesitant about recommending it, he is quite right; the "samples" do not do it justice.
I am thoroughly enjoying this; I took a leap of faith and it REALLY paid off and that is all I can suggest - taking a leap of faith. I honestly do not know how helpful this review is; it may not make sense, but for me it's 5 big stars!
