The word is out on "1919!"

I highly recommend checking this album out as soon as you can; I don't think you'll find yourself disappointed in the least.”

This album is stunningly well crafted, with excellent songs and solid lyrics. Musically, I'm amazed at the range and variety of instruments used, while keeping a cohesive sound throughout. If I had to make comparisons to other bands, the Decemberists come to mind, and perhaps The Who, but the latter is more largely due to the concept-album structure (intro, overture, etc.). Overall, it's fantastic! Buy it if you haven't already! Favorite track: The Sum. ”
