Starflyer, still got it.
on August 22, 2010
I feel sorry for Jason Martin. Ever since Old there have been a lot lyrics about getting sold short in the music industry, or at least thats how I interpret it. How he isn't a 1000 times more popular I don't undertand. This album continues the legacy that is Starflyer. Each album is an evolution from the last, but retains that signature sound. Its a back and forth motion and I find myself more drawn to the darker sounds. "Morning Rise/Frightenening eyes" is the center piece sound of this album for me.
Overall, I feel the darker songs eclipse the brighter ones, but there really isn't a dud on here. I love Martin's songwriting and laser cut production. I hope he doesn't follow through on his lyrics in "A Song For the Ages" when he says, "So listen up closely, it could be my last." I want to see another Starflyer album and another and another. I swear, its an addiction once you start listening. Stellar songwriter, stellar album.
