Review Summary: I don't feel like being clever right now.Heretics
is a good album, as indicated by the 3/5 score shown just above this review.
This is the second full length release from the Lexington, Kentucky trio.
There are 11 tracks featured on this album, spanning a run time of 70+ minutes.
Vocalist and guitarist Matt Page sings with a passionate croon.
Bassist Chris Tackett provides an audible and creative lower register rumble
Drummer Joey Waters smashes the skins swiftly throughout a scintillating showcase of sound.
Please excuse that last sentence.
Together, the band plays tighter than the title track's bombastic conclusion sounds.
Trust me, it's tight.
I guess you'll just have to hear it for yourself though.
If you need more of a rundown, well...
"To Love Is To Leave" is a powerful and poignant ballad.
"How Long We Wait" is a soaring nine minute song that is ironically titled.
"It Must Taste Good" does not sound good, that much I do know.
"Ashes Fall" is a driving, moody rocker that features the band's songwriting at its best.
Simply put, if you like your rock progressive and you like your albums conceptual:
Dream the Electric Sleep might be your new favorite band.
If so, you're welcome.
If not, okay, whatever.
