Matt Berninger - Serpentine Prison
4d ago (updated 4d ago)

It's no classic and as others have suggested this release is something of a throwback to the acoustic dominated 'Cherry Tree'. I do rate this slightly higher than that EP - but that's not because Berninger has developed into a more successful purveyor of melody, nor is he a better song writer than back then (nothing on this album equals 'About Today' for a start).

No, what Matt has improved on over the years are first and foremost his lyrics, which at this stage have relaxed and blossomed into their own distinct universe, and secondly his voice - I'm loathed to say he's now a superior singer, but that voice has matured to the point where those extra years of life experience really translate.

As the dapper album cover suggest, for a lucky few growing old actually suits them.
