Honestly, The Good Life is outstanding when it comes to lyrical talent, and voice. Tim Kasher, I believe, has one of the most amazing vocalists in the music business. This CD, Black Out, in particular is unbelievable. The lyrical content is so unique and it's like every sentence has a story behind it, one that so many people can relate to. I was actually struggling through a family relationship at the time I bought the CD, and the track `Don't Make Love So Hard` kind of helped me through that time. I really feel as if anybody could enjoy The Good Life, and relate to the deeper meaning within the lyrics. I would definitely suggest this CD to anybody who enjoys Cursive, Bright Eyes, or Planes Mistaken for Stars' softer stuff.

Never.

Never in a million years would I have expected this to happen. A band (The Good Life) I've never heard of before, with a lead singer (Tim Kasher) that I've never heard of before, who's main band (Cursive) I've never heard of before, puts together an album like this. All of this even ignores the fact that The Good Life is Kasher's SIDE PROJECT.

Black Out is a truly special album that literally came out of nowhere, got very little attention, and wasn't big enough to be considered for any major publication reviews. And there isn't a bigger injustice in the music world, except for maybe the overlooking of Pauls Botique and Pinkerton (which, ironically, are now considered "classic" albums).

It's an album with depth that I have never heard in any album before, with a sound that is grand, and a purpose which is clear. On top of all of that, it was carefully planned, both from a lyrical standpoint and a design standpoint. There is a story to be told with this album, unlike 99% of all other music produced these days. And the most impressive thing is, Kasher hasn't even come close to creating another album like this, and he probably never will. It's just one of those rare CD's where everything sort of came together, and it almost makes you feel priveleged to own it, as if it's this little secret that nobody else knows about.

I would even go as far as to say that this album is more than music. It's one of "those albums" that goes beyond music, almost takes on an artistic form, but without being weird abstract stuff. Black Out was an album that was thought out, and that required its author to be in a real place emotionally to be able to write. Kasher couldn't have faked his way through an album like this even if he wanted to.

Going to the Bright Eyes show at Echo Lounge was one of the best things I could've done. I got the chance to see/hear The Good Life for the first time. After their performance, I immediately bought the album.
Every song on the album is worth listening to... definitely not one of those skip-songs albums. The great thing about this album is that the songs flow together so well. I can sit and listen for an hour and not realise it. The wide variety of instruments make their sound more unique than a lot of indie/emo stuff you here out there.
Buy this album or better yet see them live! You won't regret it.

Anything Tim Kasher lends his talent to is amazing... after seeing The Good Life with Bright Eyes live...I bought this cd. Pretty much a chronicle of some bad times he went through. Depressing but compelling lyrics, interesting electronic effects, and the Voice. Definately a must have for any Saddle Creek fan.

For me it is a rare occurance that I find a truly stellar and stunning album that I am blown away by. The Good Life's "Black Out" is among them. I was a Cursive fan for quite some time and recently have discovered The Good Life. Black Out is equally as good as anything that Tim Kasher has done. I actually believe that "Don't Make Love So Hard" is Tim's single best song.

This album is remenicient of Cursive only in the calamity of it. Tim's calm Voice takes you on a journey through every track. THe repetition of the Black Out tracks is truly impressive. If you are at all a Cursive fan or "indie" (whatever that means nowadays) buy this album and I assure you that you will not be dissapointed.

A little biased here in Omaha, NE, but have to say that this is the best ALBUM that I've heard all year. Saw The Good Life at the Sokol about a month ago and had goose bumps the entire show. The album offers much the same. Kasher is certainly expressing some deep emotions and does it very well. I just hope I get a chance to see them live once again. SUGGESTION: BUY THIS ALBUM!

I play sevreal musical instruments. I've listened to hundreds of alblums in every genre of music, and I would easily consider this one of the top 5 most brilliant alblums ever created. Tim Kasher is a natural-born musical genius. The combination of lyrics, music and raw emotion elevate the listener to another world.
