A music blog dedicated to metal, rock, electronica and more. I mostly do reviews of underground music as those artists need more promotion. However, I won't hesitate to review mainstream stuff as well. Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. Hope you enjoy it.
P.S. Sorry but NO LINKS and NO SAMPLES. ONLY REVIEWS. I don't want to risk having my blog taken down. Thanks.
This is a pretty radical departure from Sam Beam's earlier work, although folk elements are definitely still present. If anything, this album's style is much closer to baroque pop a la Arcade Fire than to traditional folk. There even some funk, gospel, and (gasp) electronic elements! But that's just fine because it's a phenomenal album nonetheless. It shows Beam's refusal to repeat his albums and his eagerness to experiment with and develop his sound. 9/10
