The Reformation - The Floral War
I can't say I was expecting this. I was not expecting to be moved by this album. I was expecting to just force my through this album and give some review with sentences that lack any parallelism, grammar, and any real thought. Of course, I'd add it, I wouldn't want to appear unprofessional, my point is I wasn't expecting much.
Apparently Westin Glass to put me in my place...and I must say, he did. Starting off with "Hands at your sides//hands at your sides," you find yourself absorbed so much into what he is singing, you are following his directions.
Musically, the release is simplistic. The drums demonstrate some ability to have some complexity but they really don't practice it. "Archers On" starts off with an excellent drum intro and then Westin Glass begins and again you are overwhelmed again by them, that if you were a medieval king, you'd have massive brigades of archers following the demand to "Bring your archers on."
Heart of the Story ends the album with a very folk sound and an excellent bass line and something that sounds strikingly like a xylophone. Basically, it's a perfect end to a perfect release.
