Denison Witmer has always been one of my favorite singer/songwriters. His last album was a little disappointing, not because of the quality, but because it just seemed very produced. One of the things I've always loved about his music is that when listening to it, I often feel he's playing right in front of me.
This album is a return to this exact joy that I last experience on "Are You A Dreamer?". If you are looking for top-notch music that is inspiring and worth every penny, look no further. Witmer definitely delivers in "The Ones Who Wait."

After hearing Witmer's 'Are You A Dreamer,' I delved into his older stuff and became an avid fan. His next album, Carry the Weight, while upbeat and produced with a crisp rhythm section, and bearing several gems, wasn't up to par with Are you A Dreamer. When hearing that Witmer was putting out a new album on Matthew Hoopes' label, Mono Vs. Stereo, I was fairly mystified. Partly due to Hoopes' writing of pop-rock songs in Relient K, party because after viewing the tracklist, I noticed Witmer was including several songs previously released from Carry the Weight. Even if they were re-recorded, I worried the album might be an assemblage of scraps and leftovers. Nonetheless, I preordered, because any Witmer album is still a good album.

What I wasn't expecting from this album was a set of songs that would outdo much of Denison's back catalogue; this album is premium Witmer. The production is as crisp and clear as ever, but there seems to be a return to some classic elements of his older albums. I'd say the album is a cross between his two best albums, Safe Away (first official album) and Are You A Dreamer? The acoustic guitars are usually deviously simple and stamped against a backdrop of gentle ambience reminiscent of Denison's work with Don Peris (Innocence Mission). Sonically, the minimal layers leaves a lot of space in the songs for the listener to reflect and focus on Denison's words; the songs are simple and uncluttered but still stand alone and together as classic, unfettered Denison. Even the songs that previously appeared on Carry the Weight, were re-envisioned and re-recorded and sound incredible in their new incarnation. I'm not generally into re-recordings myself, but these tracks are quite justified.

Lyrically, Denison is as reflective as ever.

Perfect with a cup of warm tea on the occasional rainy day, Denison's latest album is for those who want to become part of the music they are listening to, not just innocent bystanders. Mellow electric guitar leads the first track with a consistent acoustic strum. This track titled, "Hold On," sets up the album for a great and enjoyable listen. The album continues with deep personal thoughts sung with a typical, yet very unique, droning voice. Highlights include the first track as mentioned, as well as "Life Before Aesthetics" and "Two and a Glass Rose." Overall, with this latest release, Denison continues to prove his skill as a lyricist and musician. If you care just as much about the words in a song as the tune, listen to this album... it certainly won't let you down!

I've loved Denison Witmer since 2003, when one of my college friends slipped me a disc of "Safe Away." I'm grateful to him. If he had not made me a copy, I would not have found my favorite artist. His songs often appear introspective, but they carry a deep meaning for all of us. It's not navel-gazing.
"The Ones Who Wait" is created with a higher production value than many of his early albums. More musicians appear on the tracks, with a banjo and horns making appearances. The album features the intricate guitar work that has become a trademark of Witmer's work and the same soft voice we expect from him.
"Hold On," the first track, is one of my favorite Witmer songs. It features upbeat guitar work and a bouncy rhythm. "Influence" is equally upbeat and features the aforementioned banjo. Its lyrics focus on forgiveness, a theme that appears on a few Witmer albums: "Love me like the way you used to/ Forgive me for the things that I do."
He also takes the chance to re-record "Life Before Aesthetics" from his last album. He has done this with a few songs in the past. I guess Witmer, like a lot of artists, is never really finished with a song.
Overall, this album appears more hopeful than Witmer's last album. Both feature an artist who is not willing to stay complacent.
