4 stars It is interesting to consider how Casey Crescenzo is drifting further away from alt-prog with The Dear Hunter and shifting back to what sound like his post-hardcore roots. What makes this interesting, is the fact that his music nevertheless sounds fresh and original. Not progressive, but he still produces albums that give the listener thoughtful and heartfelt tunes.

Migrant is sort of the epitome of this, the songs are catchy beyond all catchiness. We see pieces on this record that could have very easily fit in one of the excellent Color Spectrum EPs yet may even have a better production quality to them that they benefit from greatly. Some moments recall the first three acts of the concept album series but for the most part, Crescenzo stays fairly basic in his songwriting which is by no means a bad thing.

Just give the album a listen, you'll enjoy it. You may not be drawn in to it by some fantastic storyline like you were with the old records, but I guarantee, you will enjoy the songs.

4 stars for a solid record.
