While The World As We Know It was a solid collection of pop songs, some complained (justifiably so) that the overall tone of the record was a little too Disney-ish. Well folks, The Morning Of have grown up. The Way I Fell In is a pitch-perfect suite of gorgeous, engaging, mature, and masterfully crafted tunes. Justin and Jessica's vocals have never sounded better, and Jim Wirt did an absolutely killer job producing the record. Early favorites are "The Ones That Fall Apart", "The Time It Takes To Grow" the Jessica-only "I Know You Know", "Bring Me Home", and "Heaven or Hell (feat. Aaron Marsh)" but really, the entire album is devoid of filler.
I would be extremely surprised if this band did not have a huge breakout of a year. This album should take them places, for sure. I'd highly recommend preordering it if you are digging the new stuff.
