The Close Give Us A Beautifully Woven Album

An album release from The Close breeds an honest and personal Americana and singer-songwriter approach that incorporates such lush storytelling and atmosphere that you end up getting attached to the character on a lot of these tracks which is something I haven't felt for quite some time so to hear it on this record was very refreshing.

The Orbit album has songs that come through with words and lyrics that make you think and this strange sense of nostalgia that hits you almost like some of these tracks could have served as the chapter to the soundtrack in your own life at certain points.

I'm not sure if that's what they were going for, but it hit a certain nerve and I found everything to be very honest and warm along with such descriptive lyrics at times that you could vividly picture certain things in your head while you're listening to them.

Other times, memories of your own just pop into your head at random during some of these songs and I think that's a beautiful thing because we only need music that makes us think and makes us feel.

I think that certain kinds of music are meant for that.

The musicianship across the span of this record is outstanding and the guitar work is perfect along with these vocals that come through with passion and a heart and this goes for the entire band to be honest with you.

The whole band has heart, and the record has a soul and persona to it that you end up just getting wrapped up in but that feels good.

There are more than a handful of singles on this record that stand on their own two feet so well but in a way, it feels almost like this is a concept album of sorts because the songs have a strange way of interconnecting with each other story-wise at times and this is just one of the many reasons why I would highly suggest listening to the record as a whole from beginning to end.

I feel like this is the way the record was meant to be soaked in.

There are more than a few surprises around the corners throughout the release but it's such a beautiful and all-involved sort of album in the sense that all the instruments and players feel like they're feeding off of each other the entire time and this gives the songs the sense of almost being alive and breathing in a way.

There's no one genre that this record is because it encompasses everything from folk to country, contemporary rock, and a lot more.

There are so many courses in hooks during this album that stick in your head for hours or sometimes even days after the songs have ended and to me that's just brilliant songwriting because the only way to satiate that is to listen to them again.

This record has meaning, purpose, heart, soul, a perfect dynamic balance of this energy and color, character, and tonality.

You do pay attention to these songs and what's being said because all across this album there are so many moments that pull you in lyrically because you can relate to them or you can picture them in your head perfectly.

This was a gracefully performed record with outstanding delivery from pretty much all ends.

I'm going to give this a 9 out of 10 straight up.

This one is definitely for people who love Americana or folk, singer-songwriter or even a light rock feel but with messages and stories that you can get engulfed in.
