Three years ago I had the honor of being awarded the opportunity to hear the band's debut album The Big Goodbye , through its leader Matt Glisson who sent me an online copy. Now this situation is repeated , and again I have that honor , with his new album entitled History in Rewind.

All I can say is wow ! The band has really grown a lot in that time, and this is reflected in this new album, which surpasses the first in all respects. The point where praise is more tear production, which is far superior and better-made. Where in Sounds and Silence I felt a certain lack of emotion in music, here I am rewarded with a more crystal clear and audible output. This is particularly notable when we heard the recordings of three songs from the first album that are also here and compare with their original versions.

It is clear that no use of a good production is the musicality of the group had not evolved too. This was an album that grew on me defintivamente as they heard him, and even though the songs are shorter than the first album each is well-crafted and executed, lacking highlights here. My particular favorites are the mini-epic The Beggining of the End, The Other Side, the gorgeous Breathe (which has a beautiful duet with Elise Walker) and Choices. In addition, the three tracks on the previous album, although not deviate from their original sound, continue to be a huge highlight, especially The Great Divide, which stands for me as the best song this band has ever done.

4 solid stars. This is a band of immense potential, and again express my gratitude to enjoy the courtesy of their music.
