This album is less abrasive than their previous albums which at first was disappointing, but after repeated listening I discovered that this allows the band to experiment with different instruments and arrangements that would have been buried under the overdrive of their previous work.
Also, it features a killer appearance by Jeremy Enigk of Sunny Day Real Estate fame. I’m not sure how they were able to talk him into that, but I’m pretty jealous!
At the garden’s edge beneath a speechless sky
as his friends slept
Jesus wept - and no wonder why
and now you say you wanna be set free??
well I’m told that can only come from
a union with the One who never dies.
