The formerly more folk group takes things on a more melodic and harder edge. The lyrics continue to be excellent and insightful with themes of nature and relationships. Strongest tracks include 7,8 and 9; 'blue jean girl', 'dead poets' and 'the dance'. Reminds me of other great folk groups like "The Unthanks" and Family of the Year remains a group with great promise. Their voices and rich harmonies are beautiful and uplifting. Their earlier albums, especially 'Loma Vista' are also well worth checking out. They are successfully taking the folk modality to newer, more muscular, more 'pop' places. If you're a fan of thoughtful, artful music with a slightly softer, lighter edge, I highly recommend this album.
