Love It

This is music!!!

Best Album yet!

I was so thrilled to hear these guys were back together. I picked this album up when it first came out last fall and its been a staple of my iPod. If you appreciate killer musicians, outstanding harmonies and incredible music......BUY THIS RECORD!

Start to finish this is a classic gem! Live they are even better!

This seems to be the most fun Ian has had in years and just maybe that feeling will be as contagious to the listener. You get the sense that Albatross was an unbridled joy in creation. It jumps genres with ease while remaining sincere wherever it lands.

Every song is different in texture, space, tone and feel, yet they hang together through their superior melodic quality, sophisticated composition and "tight but loose" approach to production. There's hard and soft, dark and light and enough memorable hooks to keep you listening for years.

The reverence & reference span generations of music. Ian has absorbed much and the band is able to deploy the pieces he's loved in fresh new ways while keeping genuine.

There are multiple tracks which cover the entire Big Wreck/Thornley catalog in their appeal. Fans of each phase will have something to sink their teeth into and there's even some exciting new ground being turned over, so get ready for layers, crunch, muscle, texture, nuance, beauty, hooks and funk!


Formed: 1994 in Boston, MA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Canadian-American neo-prog hard rock outfit Big Wreck were formed by Ian Thornley (vocals, guitar), Brian Doherty (guitar), Dave Henning (bass), and Forrest Williams (drums). The quartet members met in the early '90s when they were studying at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Eventually, the four spent more time jamming together than attending class, and they soon decided to leave school to form Big Wreck. The group became a fixture around Boston and Cambridge, regularly playing local stages....
