Album Review

Deas Vail’s sophomore full-length finds the Arkansas-raised Christian rock band borrowing more heavily from indie rock. But even though their amps are bigger, their take on the genre is a charmingly wholesome one, geared for a mainstream audience. Wes Blaylock’s airy falsetto is as sweet as ever and Andy Moore continually keeps things interesting with his jangly guitar parts. Deas Vail definitely has a bit more bite than previous albums or EPs, but the songs are still rich with lush textures, and the sunbleached melodies are often keen and catchy.

Holy wow! Better than double-stuffed Oreos!

Great! (but different)

For old Deas Vail fans, you'll hear a more raw instrumental sound and a little less airy atmospheric noises. But this change is wonderful! Their previous albums were fantastic and this self titled album just proves that Deas Vail can write with a variety of styles, and do it well!

For new-comers, prepare for something a bit like Copeland...yeah...a bit like Copeland. Great stuff.

Stepping in the opposite direction

I love Deas Vail. I fell in love with them when their album Birds & Cages came out. The album changed my life and is one of my favorite music albums of all time. That being said, I think it is obvious that when I heard about the new album I had high expectations. I knew Deas Vail could pull it off..they are musical geniuses. Unfortunately, this album just doesn't do it too much for me. The melodies are dull and boring at times. Summer Forgets Me is probably the song that holds closest to that Birds & Cages feeling. The others all sound the same to me and while the lyrics are brilliant, the music just doesn't move me the way their previous music has.
The band has stated in interviews that this album is closest to what they've always wanted to do because they had so much freedom. Apparently when they recorded Birds & Cages they didn't have the freedom like they do now. Their record producer or someone pushed them to make a piano based album (Birds & Cages) while this is a guitar based album. I think they should stick to piano base.
Still love Deas Vail, just hope their next album shows the flare I expected from this album.
