iTunes Review

Where most recording artists have to work up to crafting, mixing, and releasing a concept album, Casey Crescenzo (recording under the moniker The Dear Hunter) operates in diametric directions. His fifth studio album is also his first to not wax conceptual. “Bring You Down” opens with lush, symphonic strings that swell with sweeping grandiosity before dissipating to reveal Crescenzo cooing softly over stark piano notes. When the song builds up again, it plays with a gorgeous sonic panorama that’s rooted in the rich production values of Brian Wilson by way of Phil Spector. Freeing himself from the heady confines of piecing together conceptual albums pays off, as evidenced here and in the following “Whisper”—a similarly orchestrated composition with faster rhythms and what sounds like a church choir of vocal overdubs. After touring with the Los Gatos, Calif., band Dredg, it’s quite possible that some of that group's baroque-pop songwriting style seeped into the soulful “Shame,” which plays like a collaboration between The Dear Hunter and Dredg. “Let Go” is an emotionally triumphant standout.

Not one of the Acts!

If the Acts are all you love about The Dear Hunter, this album is not for you! Migrant feels more innocent and free, which explains the album artwork. There are some of the most beautiful moments Casey has ever produced on this album. I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes good music!

A masterpiece

If you consider yourself a music lover in any way, then listen to this album. Now.

Really bummed

The act albums were incredible to me. I was so excited about the color spectrum but ended up being very disappointed. Now this.. There's nothing here. It's so empty. There's few good hooks and too simplistic chord changes. This album is so boring. I'm truly disappointed in this " effort ".

The Dear Hunter started as a solo side project by singer and keyboardist Casey Crescenzo, formerly a key member of Belchertown, Massachusetts emo act the Receiving End of Sirens. An outlet for Crescenzo's songs that didn't fit the Receiving End of Sirens' heavy post-hardcore vibe, the Dear Hunter was initially envisioned as a concurrent project. Indeed, Crescenzo's first gig as the Dear Hunter was an opening slot for the Receiving End of Sirens, at which he was backed by the other members of the...
