Album Review

Philadelphia-based singer/songwriter and Wonder Years frontman Dan "Soupy" Campbell tries his hand at Americana storytelling with the debut of his new solo project Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties. After four albums and countless tours with his hardworking pop punk band, stripping down for a more organic, acoustic approach seems like a natural move for a maturing artist in a genre known its youthful angst and snarkiness. He's certainly not the first to trade in his Vans for some well-worn hobo boots, but while the instrumentation has changed from power chords to banjos and harmonica, Campbell's new subdued approach still takes a decidedly emo bent as he delivers a sort of concept album which paints the portrait of the character Aaron West, a sad Brooklynite in a dead-end relationship trying to bust out. Produced by the Early November's Ace Enders, We Don't Have Each Other is broad in its scope as Campbell tries to fully inhabit West's life and subsequent escape, delivering the lyrics in third person with a sensitive, toned-down croon that that still rings with punk affectation. The story itself is compelling as it unfolds over a backdrop of gently strummed roots folk with big, emo choruses.

Customer Reviews

AMAZING!

I've never experienced an album like this, beautiful, emotinal and raw; lyrically, musically, narratively. The ability of Campbell tell Aaron's story is amazing and cinematic. Each song paints a vivid scene of what Aaron is experiencing. The songs are wonderful on their own, but factor in the emotional journey of Aaron West that the listener experiences and we are left with an album that is truly special.

Great snare tone

Well written record. Excellent snare tone. Nice and low. Boxy and dry. Totally compliments the folkier tracks. Kudos.

Amazing album. Sad and relatable.

This album is outstanding and exactly what I would expect from Aaron west. Sad and deep lyrics with beautiful instrumentals make this a must have album.

Aaron West & the Roaring Twenties is the first solo project from singer/songwriter Dan Campbell, who is best known as the frontman for pop-punk act the Wonder Years. Looking to improve his guitar chops and expand his lyrical style, Campbell began writing songs on acoustic guitar that blended the passion and aggression of pop punk with more of an Americana and roots aesthetic. The new music didn't fit the Wonder Years' style and, while never intended for release, Campbell had casually played a few...
