In Search of Solid Ground

Bear Rinehart of Needtobreathe recently told us in an interview that the best albums are albums where bands sound like the have a chip on their shoulder. I don’t know if Saosin is in Bear’s palette of music or not but if you like urgency in your music this latest Saosin album is a set that you’re going to be a big fan of. It’s diverse, it’s loud, it’s fast, it’s slow, it’s moving, it’s energizing, it’s broad, and it’s everything you could want out of a follow-up record that so many people found to be tremendous. The new Saosin record starts out how it should- with a song that sounds like it could have been on the last record- frantic stuff but layered better and really a more sonically pleasing track. The last song on the record is perhaps the best song on the record- a straight up 8 minute ballad that will be an amazing part of the band’s show for years to come. Saosin followed up their major debut with a record that can be enjoyed by all. Cove Reber is even more impressive on on this record than he was on his debut- and really everything here sounds plush and distinct. This is an amazing album from Saosin… everything you could want from a follow-up.
