So different in such a good way compared to their two previous albums. The new piano driven sound really works well with Bowman's soaring vocals. But what really elevates the album is the optimistic lyrics, while not being "overly quixotic" and corny (with the exception of Love By Mistake). The album really shows what a mature band Bad Suns has become.
A disappointingly bland and overly quixotic effort from a band fresh off of their career peak.
Every song sounds exactly how a song with its title would sound...

...boring, cliche, formulaic, etc. I've learned that that is kind of what Bad Suns are at this point, but I am usually able to enjoy one or two songs, but on Mystic Truths- not so much. Starjumper saved it right at the end from being utterly terrible, but I am still already forgetting it.
