The album came out and it’s good. The first 3 tracks are solid. The best track is the fifth one “Every Little Thing”. The second half has a few good tracks but too many average or Jazzy Westcoast ones that I’m not into.
The voice and sound of WOA but not as good. The layers of sound and technicality that make WOA so special just aren’t the same with Lionville.
I don't frequent any other forums and all my mates back in the day were into the same stuff as me. It was more certain mainstream acts that I copped shit for liking. "The Beatles", "Hoodoo Gurus" and "The Cure" spring to mind.
This release is massive! Easily my favourite debut since One Desire in 2017. Everything from the songs, vocals of all sorts, guitars, drums, tasty keys and production are all ear candy to me.
The only “weakness” might be the lyrical content, but I really don’t care.
They could have added an extra minute to “Lift Me Up” so awesome! Can’t unhear Winger’s “Madelaine” when hearing their “Madeleine”...that’s not a bad thing.
