I like the music but someone thought that running it through a distortion box would give it an ambient feeling. I would rather hear it clean. It sounds like an old record that has been played too many times.
Other than that I like it. If they ever do a remaster I may buy it again.

I first became aware of Jose Gonzalez through his cover of Massive Attack's "Teardrop." Since then I've really liked everything I've heard that he's been involved with, especially Junip. This album continues the feel established with 2010's Fields. Sort of a 6:30 on a summer afternoon feeling...laid back, but with soul...mellow, but not tiresome. Close in sound and feel to Gonzalez's work with Zero 7's The Garden.

All the cuts are listenable, 3 or 4 memorable. The two that impress me the most are the hard-charging "Line of Fire" and the Gilberto-esque "Baton". Also enjoyed "Your Life Your Call" and "Walking Lightly", both representative of Junip at their best. I find this maybe a tad better than "Fields", because it seems to be pushing their boundaries out a little further with the keyboards and rhythms in support of Jose Gonzalez's hypnotic guitar and vocal style. If you are looking for trippy, coffee-house folk, this is the band to go with.

I'm a huge fan of Fields and this follows in the exact same vein. It's a classic sophomore album that doesn't seem as comfortable in its own skin as the first effort did, but it's safe to say if you liked the first album, you'll like this. The continuation of mellow melodies, artful but sometimes uncomfortable distortion, and haunting vocals still make this a winner and worth a place in your music rotation.

When I first heard YOUR LIFE, YOUR CALL on Sirius/XM, I came home told my wife about it immediately. It is a standout track in a really nice, smooth set. It first struck me as something that would go well in the soundtrack of an angst-ridden thirtysomething movie or TV show. I have since learned to appreciate the whole album in bigger ways. If you're looking for life-changing stuff, this is probably not it. If you're looking for something really pleasant to relax with, this could be the ticket. If you're looking to place it in a sub-genre, try listening to YOUR CALL in a set with Beck's I WON'T BE LONG and Phosphorescent's SONG FOR ZULA. All pretty pop for grownups....

This was a gift, and I know my son loves it because he is always listening to it on Spotify. Perfect gift for a guy who has everything.

A very underwhelming effort with a couple of good songs at the beginning than just 'filler' tracks until the end. I like most of what Gonzalez does, but this seems mostly uninspired and dull.

These guys are awesome! Really cool Indie Rock. Different from a lot of the stuff out there right now. Laid back music, easy going, and relaxing. I've enjoyed them so much since I found them and have bought a few of their albums. Try them out. I think you'll like them too.

This album is great background music as well as an album to be listened to for the sake of listening to music. Not as good as "Fields" but a close second.

Wonderful melodies and lyrics. It sounds better every time I play it. I'll buy more of their music very soon.
