Is 'Boxes' song of the year? Maybe, just maybe...

Just like the last album I listened to, I'm just speechless I love these guys.

This was a great piece of work that I just happened to stumble upon. The vocalist is absolutely mesmerizing, and she's supported nicely by the atmosphere that the rest of the band provides. Interesting stuff.

Land Animal starts off incredibly strong with the first three tracks all standing out above the rest and really showing off what Bent Knee is made of. They have a certain playful attitude that lends a freshness to the artsy prog rock approach they are taking. Courtney Swain's vocals are powerful and she really excels in the entirety of Holy Ghost. This first quarter of the album leaves the listener wowed and excited for what is to come. The album feels cryptic and one awaits the mysteries to come to light in the latter portions but for the most part the last seven tracks fail to reach the quality of the first three and Land Animal flattens. There are flashes of brilliance from time to time with Swain paired to some very rich synth compositions. The music meanders from long quiet lows to energetic, grandiose highs but relies on this contrast a bit too much. Their playfulness goes from fun and quirky to borderline laughable in 'Belly Side Up'. Truly the worst track on the album and some hard lyrics to listen to. Very much cinematic and artsy rock but Land Animal starts with a bang and fades thereafter.
