The sophomore effort from Australian trio Sick Puppies is an enjoyable listen from start to finish. Dressed up as life has meaningful lyrics, catchy choruses, and terrific musicianship. Shimon Moore's lyrics are undoubtedly one of the strongest aspects of the album, and the lyrics, as well as the vocal delivery, are especially emotional in tracks like "My World", "All The Same", and "Asshole Father". But bassist Emma Anzai and Mark Goodwin have plenty to offer here as well. The musicianship in "Cancer" and "The Bottom" is fantastic, with the latter containing a truly outstanding bass line from Anzai in the bridge. This album and Tripolar are the only two albums I've heard from Sick Puppies (who now have a different lead singer), but I think its safe to say that this will always remain my favorite. A consistent album with a few major highlights, it's always worth a listen.
