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