It starts off with The Running Song which itself starts off with dirty, heavy, gritty music and these deep vocals that already contradict one another. It then progresses into a slower track with cool sections of dual vocals that contrast each other in an unexpected way. Folding Up has a garage band indie vibe and The Road Home has killer distorted music and a cool hint of menace in the vocals. Salt in the Wounds is commanded by the vocals, which are this intense loud whisper and there is a cool deliberate punctuated end to each of the lines. Stand Alone has a cool attitude, a cool indie sound, and great screaming sections. Your Disguise has a bit of chaos and a bit of melody and Old Sparks has a new wave feel to it. The last track, Strings is a bit slow but you will tap your foot - the drums control this one.
At The End Of The Day is such an interesting album because you end up in a sonically totally different place than where you began, yet you were taken there so expertly and subtly that you didn’t notice the journey.
