10 Songs, 35 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

For their third studio album, the Brooklyn-based alt-pop band traveled to a mountainside studio 20 minutes outside Nashville. The change of scenery is reflected on Seasons: The highs are higher, the mood bright and introspective. “Bring It on Home,” “Neighborhood,” and “Can’t Stop Me Now” feed off the same energy that made “Best Day of My Life” a 2014 breakout hit. There's something more reverential this time around: “Deep Water” searches for meaning with the passion of a preacher (“I can’t find my purpose if I don’t know what my worth is," goes a line). “Say Amen” (featuring Ontario singer-songwriter Billy Raffoul) and “A Real Place” go even further, swirling with restorative gospel touches. Seasons shows that American Authors still make joyful, fun alt-pop, but have found different routes to get there.

It's bad

I don't know what to say. This is so soulless. They had no reason to record any of this.

What a disappointment

So looking forward to this album and it's nothing but depressing songs. What happened to their unique sound? Why change for the sake of change. There is maybe one decent song on here the rest is just a mess of dark introspective crap. If you're into moody music you'll love it. No hits here at all. Not the American Authors I loved from the first two albums. Who talked them into this nonsense?

The Greatest

What more can I say that I haven’t already said? These songs are so easy to connect with. I love these guys. We’ve been waiting on this album for 2 1/2- 3 years and it’s finally coming! It’s amazing to me how they have a song for every occasion. Cruise around in the car, hang out with friends, need to be sad, remember the good old days, encouragement for finals week, anything. These guys have got you covered. I wish they could get more of the recognition they deserve. So excited to see them in concert again and wear out my CDs.
