Biography

Plenty of bands like to yammer on about how their newest record is a “return to their roots,” as if some undiscovered brilliance is to be found and resurrected on early demos and basement jam sessions. But the in case of ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead (or Trail of Dead from here on out, because who really wants to type all that over and over), a return to form could ...

Editorial Reviews

Special two CD mediabook edition includes four additional bonus tracks on Disc One plus a second CD that contains the segued version of the album with no pauses between the songs. Also includes a 180 page booklet. 2012 release, the eighth studio album from the Austin Alt-Rock band And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead (sometimes referred to as The Trail Of Dead). Contrary to what the name may imply, Lost Songs is all new material by the band. Frontman Conrad Keely says ''The music was inspired by the apathy to real world events that has plagued the independent music scene now for over a decade. 'Up to Infinity' is about the Syrian civil war. We believe that tyranny and despotism suffered by any people, anywhere, is intolerable and should not be treated as an internal matter, but completely justifies intervention by the international community.''

Format: Audio CD
I personally prefer Trail of Dead at their meandering best with loose, symphonic song structures that butt up against and ebb away from each other as an album plays out. Tao of the Dead is my favorite Trail of Dead album--not Sourcetags. I add that caveat to my review because most other reviewers and quite a few Trail of Dead listeners seem to long for a return to the band's style on Sourcetags and earlier albums, which was much more focused on single songs and aggressive rather than progressive rock.

Lost Songs doesn't disappoint those fans. It's a focused, song-by-song album that ditches much of the symphonic (both in structure and instrumentation) efforts of their four preceding albums and sees a very tight band delivering well crafted rock tunes. I'm constantly astounded by how well Trail of Dead can hold my attention--six albums in for me and I still greet each release with great anticipation and have yet to be disappointed. I can't think of any other band that has produced six albums I'm happy to listen to in their entirety any time. (Yes, I know that Trail of Dead have eight albums counting the two before Sourcetags, but I don't count the first two in the "listen to in their entirety any time" category.)

If you longed for ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead to return to their Sourcetags sound and style, you should love this album. If you think that World's Apart was possibly even better than Sourcetags, then you might lament the turn this album takes, but should still find it very enjoyable as every song is ridiculously engaging and well crafted.

An aggressive, all out record that keeps Trail of Dead at the top of my playlist. Fresh off the heals of "Tao of the Dead," which was great in its own right, this record shows ToD can maintain quality, even on record 8, improving with time, and can provide me with the type of progressive rock that frankly, just isn't out there anymore. Great job guys! Keep the records coming.

Lost Songs is a fantastic return to the sound of the earlier works, while integrating here and there some of the musicality of the latter albums. I recommend it to any ToD fan or as a gateway drug for new listeners.

Actually more like Source Tags than anything else they've done. It's good high-energy rock without the pomp in the previous few albums. It's worth a spin if you like TOD. I've been pleasantly surprised.
