Live and Let Go

Review by Gary Hill

This new set is an intriguing alternative rock album. It's fairly short with only seven songs. The first one is an instrumental that's almost proggy, and the closer is an acoustic guitar based ballad. Beyond that we get a solid helping of alternative rock with a decent amount of piano in the mix. This is not Earth-shattering, but it is quite effective.

Track by Track Review

Piano leads this off. The cut builds out from there in a tasteful alternative rock way. The piano is one of the real prominent parts of this instrumental. It takes to its closing.

Live and Let Go
Although piano starts this one, too, it quickly turns out to a harder rocking sound. This is a very effective and powerful alternative rock cut. It's quite classic in sound. It has some great hooks and textures.
Wait For You
An even harder edged number, there is a lot of emo built into this beast. Still, it's more of a straightforward alternative rocker.
What You Wanted
There is a cool piano and voice drop back at the end that adds a different flavor. Beyond that, this is a high energy rocker that has all the pop and alternative rock trappings you'd expect.
Tell Them They're Wrong

A big chunk of this is balladic, but it works out to more rocking territory as it works through.

I'm Doing My Best
There is no big change here. Instead it's a powered up rocking alterative tune. It's great stuff.
These Terrible Hands
Acoustic guitar and vocals make up this track. It's a rather folk like ballad. It's good but seems to go on a bit long.
