Really didn't feel the first single, but maybe when I give this album a proper spin it'll click with me better. Loved every other release of his so far....

At this point in Avery's career, he has firmly established a unique and great sound. What turned me off last release was not the music (I thought musically it was his best record) but rather the divisive lyrics. That is why, to me,

Quote:
Thematically, this record does not delve as spiritually as its predecessor.

is the most important sentence you wrote.

I think "Run and Don't Stop" might be my least favorite song on here. Check out the rest of the album, it definitely goes up from there.

Haha. It's easy to forget it was just him, because the arrangements are so full-bodied and well-realized it just feels like a whole band.

And yeah, not trying to be a dick. I just think you can review with a lot more depth than this particular one. You know I like you, dude.
For sure. He's amazing at what he does.

Thanks for the challenge for future reviews bud

Nice review!

Just one quick question -- what exactly did you mean with the "timing and signatures" phrase regarding "200,000"?

I couldn't tell if you meant for timing to be "rhythm" and signatures to be "time signatures". If not, I'm confused! Any thoughts?
Yeah, I meant time signatures - thanks for the correction!

As great as Do You Feel is, I've had difficulty getting into any of Bryce's work post-Hello, Good Friend. It's hard for him to top that record.

Fucking LOVE me some Bryce Avary. Great review. Don't know if the RIYL's are spot on, but - then again- I would probably just put other TRS albums as RIYL haha

Very good album. The guy can't quit putting out fantastic, heartfelt music. He's the real deal.

I felt like Do You Feel was very different in terms of production and vibe, but much of Of Men & Angels and this new album totally remind me what really got me into The Rocket Summer during the Hello, Good Friend days.

If anyone has not seen The Rocket Summer live then you must run to your local venue and buy some tickets because watching Bryce sing and perform with all those instruments is an experience unlike any other, his voice is amazing and it sounds even better live.

Hey dude reviewing this album, if this is TRS's best album how could it be 8/10? TRS surely has a 10/10 album in their repertoire, that would be Do You Feel in my opinion.

I was thinking this while listening to it today. A lot of his last album felt the same way.

PS. Someone else from Lynnwood. Cool.

Yeah, fellow just north of Seattle-ite! And obviously a great mind that thinks alike. Where abouts are you?
