Editorial Reviews

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.''

I almost didn't by this record. With a title like LOST SONGS, I thought this was a B-sides/rarities album filled with songs that didn't quite make it to previous releases. Not so! LOST SONGS is a completely new full-length record from ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead. The band's output since their masterwork SOURCE TAGS AND CODES has been scattershot -- many flashes of brilliance among some meandering or uninteresting tracks. I've been a fan of the band for a while now, and this is the kind of album that you will want to tell people about. The band crafts a brand of post-rock that feels hard to come by these days: part punk, part prog, and park alt rock, the band has slick sensibilities, but they do a great job creating a sonic atmosphere (complete with rolling intensity) around their tunes.

It's clear from the opening track that ...And You Will Know Us are making an tight, aggressive, and energized album. "Open Doors" pushes forward with an intensity that never lets up, and the energy isn't lost in transition to the next few tracks either ("Pinhole Camera," "Up to Infinity", "Opera Obscura"). In fact, this album burns with a fire that I haven't seen in quite a while; even when the band slows down ("Awestruck"), the result is a solid effort. The album does slow a bit towards the end, with the aforementioned "Awestruck" and album closer "Time and Again." These are by no means bad songs, but after the pure adrenaline of the first half of the record, listeners can't help but wait for the inevitable crash of cymbals and roar of amplifiers, but it never quite returns. The album is consistently good, but man, those first few songs are worth the price of admission alone. Not a single note on this album feels out of place or wasted.

As a BIG fan of the ToD albums that precede this, the absence of the soaring symphonic elements and tonal shifts and sheer variety of styles disappointed me. But once past those hurdles, i quite enjoyed the new album. As noted in other reviews, this is a less produced and finessed album, a selection of songs rather than a concept album. On those grounds, it succeeds and thrills. So, while not the ToD album I've been waiting for - this si still fine, fine music.

Best album since Source Tags and Codes, it's that good! I did not like Source Tags at first but it grew into one of my favorite albums. Next favorite album would be Lost songs, and then a 3-way tie between World's Apart, Madonna, and So Divided

If you're into Trail of the Dead, you'll dig this album. I love riding the trails with these guys in the mix because few songs ever disappoint. They're all over the place with their range and always create an interesting album. It seems like some faithful fans end up bailing on them because of their song writing or other reasons, but I still fail to see these guys as boring. If I go out and trail ride without music, several of their songs will pop into my mind and keep me occupied through my pain. Much rawkage.

Absolutely beautiful face melting joy. This new record is easily the best thing they've done since Source Tags & Codes and the one that "should have been" the followup. Fantastic.
