Buy a copy for all of your friends, they will thank you for it.

The tone of the lyrics is generally one of contemplating loss, whether it be loss of life, faith, or love.

Music is wonderful, and the lyrics are intelligent and incredibly thought-provoking.

"We Are All Where We Belong" is superior to Songs for Staying in--which is a plenty good album in its own right. I was even more drawn to "Belong" because of the interesting experiences the lyrics cover. Profound, committed romantic love, for one. And then the movement from religious faith, through doubt and on to agnosticism (the door is never totally shut on divinity, but the impression is "as things now stand, I have no reason to believe").

Lyrically what I also love about this album is that it expresses strong emotions--romantic love, wistfulness, angst, gratitude, anger. It is forgivable that some people observing the current crop of famous unbelievers might think they are capable only of bloodless rationality, smug snarkiness, and outrage. This is complete nonsense obviously--I have no doubt that Dawkins and Hitchens and PZ Myers and the others experience and express the same range of feelings as any religious person. But often their writings, tending to focus on rational argument, seems as though they would best enjoyed by Watson the Jeopardy!-playing robot.

What we have in "Belong" is a (for lack of a better word) soulful regret that some of religion's great beauty has come at the expense of truth. We have a straightforward expression of a fear of death. We have love for partner and child as tender and binding as any Amy Grant could sing with a straight face. It is as honest, vulnerable and human a collection of songs as you're likely to hear.

This CD is well worth the $5. An hour and a half of music for that cheap is unheard of, and not only that, but the music is phenomenal. The lyrics are also extremely thought provoking and honest. You will not regret buying this.

I don't know why these guys haven't been picked up yet by a major label; they record everything in their apartment studio they have and market it themselves, but I have to say maybe they're doing such a good job they don't need a label. Really great music.

Each one of the songs in this album is anazing. I listened the album just once before buying it and I was impressed by the energy and the sentiment on all of the songs

Their best album yet. And that's saying something. I'm not great at describing music, so forgive me for simply saying that this is one of the a small number of albums that I can listen to front to back without hesitation.

This new self-release by Austin's Quiet Company is amazing in its depth and scope. There are songs of widely varying tempo and emotion. You have upbeat, fast-paced rockers and slow, quiet melancholy tunes. Sometimes, there are swings between them in the same track. The tone of the lyrics is generally one of contemplating loss, whether it be loss of life, faith, or love. There are undertones of hope and dedication to each other as human beings.

Taylor Muse has a fantastic voice suited to many styles, and his versatility is on full view in this album. Vocal harmonies provided by band members Tommy Blank, Matt Parmenter, and Cody Ackors are beautiful, tight, and soaring. The instrumental work from all the members is top-notch stuff. Muse is on piano and guitar, Blank on keys, guitar, and melodica, Parmenter on bass, Ackors on trombone with superb drummer Jeff Weathers.

Personally, I think the star tracks on the album are "You, Me, & The Boatman," "Fear & Fallacy, Sitting In A Tree," "The Easy Confidence," and "Set Your Monster Free." That's not to say there's really any hangers on. It's a strong album from top to bottom.

This band is a Texas gem poised for a breakout. They put on amazing live performances, too, so catch them when you can. Check out their other albums also, especially their other full-length self-released album Everyone You Love Will Be Happy Soon.
