Title - ‘Honey In The Hive’ (Yep Roc)
Artist - The Bigger Lovers
Great melodies, great harmonies, great compositions! Remember the first time you felt wonder? This album took me back to those times when simple things seemed like miracles, such as when a soap bubble would float away, then come back and sit next to you on the ground. There are some VERY memorable melodies, and a good mix of upbeat and mid-tempo songs on this CD. The crown jewel of this record is track six, "Bought Your Ghost." The song features some of the best harmonies and most impassioned lyrics, including the chorus' gripping question: "Was there nothing that I could say to make you change your mind?" The more aggressive rocker "Ivy Grows" is another standout track. Highly recommended!
