I never got into Beyond Control, but The Beauty Between really caught my attention.Everyone I tell this to assumes it's because of the different sound (which is rooted in hip-hop beats) but it's actually because I think this is more thought-provoking lyrically, more cohesive sonically, better produced, and has stronger melodies.While I don't think any of the songs on Real Life meet the exceedingly high bar set by songs like "Alright," "River Of Lead," and "Giving Up The Gun," it makes up for with the collective strength of the ten tracks present. His musical journey through Falling Up is such an interesting case study on how an artist develops over time.I have a strong opinion that in the past several years Jesse has been putting out music that is ahead of our time, and Blade in the Belfry only continues to solidify that opinion.
The debut album from Death Therapy exemplifies this perfectly with it's industrial groove metal.
Throughout this past year I've found myself continually drawn to this album.
It's a catchy album with well placed guest features and lyrics are much deeper than initial listens suggest.
Brothers Aaron and Jesse Sprinkle have teamed up for the first time since Poor Old Lu for an alternative rock album that is both fresh and nostalgic.
The first four tracks are alternative rock gold (and the last two are good as well, just not quite as memorable). I liked Becoming Who You Are when it first came out, but I never fell in love with it in the same way that so many others had.Check out "Hotel Bible," "Tip of My Tongue," and "Davy Jones" (or the whole album) if you are looking for a new favorite rock band.
