Review Summary: You're the one change I wanted all along

2020 has been a rough year and someone creating music like Tyson Motsenbocker is a somber, but more so joyful distraction. From real life event lyrics that remind you of the worst of humanity to real life events that are about a girl and boy dancing; Tyson can wrap you into another world that is just as realistic as this one, but still serves as a comforting distraction.

It can be hard liking a slightly generic sounding singer-songwriter such as Tyson when their songwriting skills obviously need a bit more development, or at least something more unique, but Tyson creates such a relaxing mood it is easily forgivable and his lyrics strike well. When he sings, "I was wondering could we belong in a big world we don't understand; I still believe we will find our way", it shows such hope and sense of adventure I can't help, but smile. The previously referenced song is called "Come To California" and is probably the catchiest song upon first listen. Title track, "Someday I'll Make It Up To You", has a very special extended introduction that is reminiscent of the first Coheed and Cambria album. Other songs add variation with female guest features and extra emphasis on instruments like piano to create just enough diversity to make listening to the whole album at once much easier. The singer songwriter shtick gets so old with me that Tyson being able to affect me in such a way is a merit earned all on its own, but delving into this album repeatedly is going to give me a new sense, a new attitude, a new hope.

the album is only ten songs long as well so if you just want something to relax to this is decent, looking forward to what the guy does next

the intro to Someday I'll reminds me a lot of the first Coheed album, very fucking cool! I still don't know what my top songs are but I'm sure the California song is one of them.
