New Dustin Kensrue album with commentary on YouTube


This is an interesting new concept. Thrice has always been known for, and I have loved, their detailed liner notes and commentary on their songs in the artwork for their albums. But here, instead of the comments being written, Dustin speaks them at the beginning of each song. And the comments here are strictly about the lyrics, whereas in the Thrice liner notes there was always also a lot about the instrumentation and song development.

About the album, it is terrific. Definitely the best thing Dustin has done outside of Thrice. And an encouraging return to form after the weak Water and the Blood (I expressed my feelings about it here).
