The song opens up with....
Screaming Infidelities 9/10 Great song. I prefer this version to the Places you have come to fear the most version. "This bottle of beast is taking me home."
The Sharp Hint of New Tears 9/10 The lyrics are amazing. I can totally relate to this song. Driving in a car, your only escape from the real world, where you have time to think and reflect and of course cry. Tonight I think I'll take the long way home.
Living in Your Letters. 8.5/10 A story of a sad long distance relationship.
The Swiss Army Romance. 9/10 I love this song. It's about a college girl who is so fake and superficial that underneath all of that is something much better. I'd like to see you undone.
Turpentine Chaser. 7/10 I still don't understand what this song is about, but the acoustic guitar is amazing in this one.
A Plain Morning. 10/10 Easily my favorite song on this album. This song is so well written and performed. The female who contributes the back-up vocals is amazing. This song is about longing, homesickness, and the desire to come home to the open arms of your loved one. A great song a soldier overseas can dedicate to his wife back home. Very sad indeed.
Age Six Racer. 8/10 An okay song. I love the last section of the song where he sings "I hate the winter in Lexington."
Again I go Unnoticed. 8.5/10 I prefer this version to the Places you have come to fear the most version. This song is about a girl who dismisses all romantic advances. That sucks!!!Read more ›
Okay, about the actual music. Every song has excellent lyrics, and it always seems to be the background music when I want to just sit and think about things. I love the singer's voice, something about it just makes him sound meaningful. He can hit some of the higher notes, but doesn't go out of a range that we can't all sing along to. I always sing to the music... ahhahaha i am usually not so very carefree when I sing. But there is something emotional to this music that makes you feel like you don't have to sound nice to sing it.
I love the fact that it is all pretty much acoustic. I don't know why. I am bad at explaining. . . this is a bad review sorry. :). All I can say is after hearing this CD I was so in love with it. You may be too.
Screaming Infidelities- Although I heard the second version first, I like this one just as much because it sounds much more raw (raw-er?), which is one thing I love about Dash.
The Sharp Hint of New Tears- I love this one. I have a hunch that maybe after a while I'll get sick of it, but I really hope not because I like it a lot now. It has a good rhythm.
Living in Your Letters- Thus far I've found this to be a fairly forgettable song, but I always stick with it because I absolutely love the last line, "cause turning to you is like falling in love when you're ten." That and the 3/4 time make it worthwhile.
The Swiss Army Romance- This is one of my favorites. I absolutely love the lyrics and can relate to them. It's my "soul-song."
Turpentine Chaser- I didn't care for this one much at first, but throughout the week it's really grown on me. The 3/4 time always does it for me.
A Plain Morning- I look forward to this one everytime. Jolie Lindholm's voice is absolutely stunning; I don't think I'd like it much without her.
Age Six Racer- Another one I look forward to, also because of Jolie. And again with the 3/4. I love it.
Again I Go Unnoticed- Maybe it's because I heard it first, but I really like the second version better. While this one is still amazing, he kind of screams and sounds like a girl. It's almost as if he's making fun of his own voice. Also, I like how he whisper-sings the bridge in the second one instead of sounding the same throughout the entire song.
Ender Will Save Us All- I love how he only strums the guitar once in a while and we can hear just his voice. Very good.
Shirts and Gloves- I kind of listen to this only because I'd feel guilty if I skipped it.Read more ›
