The first song on the album “Rant” may have my nomination for song of the year. The song starts out with some delicate string work as the drummer holds the time with the ride cymbal before the band kicks into full swing. Oh and when they do you may want to be in a private place cause you will probably get out of your seat and start jiving. Hey I’m all for it but your co-workers might think you're weird. The second song, “Mild, Medium, Hot,” continues to display the talent within the group. A song that starts off a bit slower but eventually becomes kinetic as the drum work alone provides enough energy to find a grove. They continue to knock them out of the park with “Pangs” which although it possesses a rather fast BPM has some of the most soulful singing on the album. When that combines with gorgeous harmonies around the 2:30 mark, it makes one of the standouts on the album.
The album continues with not a single dud from the knee slapping “The SS” to the grandiose “Brick by Brick.” Bottom line with this album is that you should already be listening to it because it is one of the funnest, pure energy type albums I have heard in a while.
