This is the sound of a man moving on and standing on his own two feet; a man who's left unwinnable battles behind, content with just getting on, living his life, and finally being happy.

Boasting 11 tracks of Lytle/Grandaddy’s trademark space-like indie pop, the record continues to fill the void left behind by a band many wish had never gone away.

Under The Radar
Under The Radar

Dept. of Disappearance, Lytle's second proper solo album since the 2006 dissolution of Grandaddy, follows directly in the same vein of his earlier work, where the edges were rarely sharp around warm and welcoming melodic vehicles.

Dept. of Disappearance is a good album that makes for a pleasing listen, despite its lack of ambition.

Department of Disappearance does sound strangely complacent and monochromatic, offering no twists on the technorganic aesthetic he's been plying since Grandaddy were still a bedroom act.

On the whole, however, the album is even-tempered where it should be adventurous, mild when there should be marvelous.
