I'm a classically trained musician of 27 years, so I knows my stuffs. This album is jaw-dropping. The third song, Tomorrow Down, actually made me say "Wow." out loud (WOL?). I tell you this with joy and amazement! Too few bands have rocked me over and over again and continue to catch me unprepared and awe-struck.
The ENTIRE album feels like this: It's like Queen, Muse, the Police, Incubus, and Hall & Oates were all at the pinnacle of their careers and decided to write music with Big Wreck, because only Ian and the boys could do it CORRECTLY. I don't say this lightly! Those above bands have been and still are masters of their craft, and yet I've never written a review for them. I'm simply compelled to speak of the musical majesty of Big Wreck. You have to hear this album to really get the gist of what I mean about the bands above. This album is like a master's thesis as to what good rock should aspire to be.
Grace Street sounds more consistently-acoustic to me than their previous couple of records which pleasantly delivers you, the listener, to their world as all the while you're being swept up in their unmistakable and galvanizing sound.
There's a very poor review somewhere in this section, and I can't for the life of me reconcile a single point that the author puts forth. I think this album is progressive, powerful, and quite truly uplifting!
I hope you enjoy!!!
