So now that you are caught up, this album is phenomenal. The music is hard hitting, powerful and catchy as hell. Egerton knew that with the variety of vocalists there was a danger of a mix tape feel and that the music needed to be the element that tied the album together. He combats that fear by mixing and mastering the album himself (in his new Oklahoma studio, Armstrong Studios).
“Abundance Of Fluff”, track three, is the song that solidifies the album to the listener. The first two tracks draw you in, but when track three starts you are ready to sing along. Track four, “South for the Winter”, carries the listener along, with the perfect blend of melodic singing and emotion straining through hoarse voices. With the music always there to add the extra layer of intensity. Songs like “Funny Face”, “Never Again”, and “Falling Out” could have been candidates for an All album and “On the Avenue” renews my faith in the horrorcore subgenre. “Print on Paper” is the song on the album that I could listen to on repeat and never get tried of; it is catchy, clever, and poignant. The songwriting relationship is really something new, the song departs from the sounds of both artist’s bands. The relationship that the music and the vocalists have on each track on this album is phenomenal, and more importantly, it is natural.
