"While no, this record may not be Illuminate Pt. 2, would we really want it to be?"
The answer is NO. Absolutely not. No band should ever put out the same album twice and no fan should want them to. I'm getting so annoyed with people complaining that this album doesn't sound like Illuminate. That type of album is very rare and all Lydia fans should be thankful they were able to create something so incredible.
Back to the point... Paint It Golden is the perfect progression. With all the mentioning of closure and acceptance from past albums, I'm very excited to see where they take this band in the future.
Every thought I had was mentioned in that post.
I love this album so damn much already. Everything Leighton & Craig touch is golden. I can't wait to hear the new songs live
