The Truth
4 stars If there was ever such a thing as the perfect blend of alt-rock and progressive rock, this would be it. Each song is fairly short and concise with pretty good female vocals, and if it weren't for the heavy guitar work behind, A Lonely Crowd might have produced an excellent indie-alt-rock album of sorts.

That being said, the excellent instrumentation that backs all of the vocals (which are pretty skillfully done and have pretty good lyrics) really adds something special to the mix. The are heavily progressive, at times approaching progressive metal in nature, but they never get too heavy and that is where this perfect blend comes from and it makes for an incredibly interesting listen.

I would recommend this album without a second thought, streaming is free on bandcamp and a download is worth every penny. It grabs your attention first listen, and yet it is still a grower in that you find something more to like each time. In that way alone, it is worth your time.

4 well-deserved stars.
