Cass McCombs - Tip of the Sphere
Feb 10, 2019
74
I see this album as one similar to Kurt Vile and The War On Drugs, incorporating elements of previous eras of rock music and combining them with a more modern feel. In comparison to TWOD, this album is infinitely less complex and more toned down as compared to the relative intricacies exhibited on that groups work. This is either a positive or a negative depending on who you are; it could mean this is a more straightforward record that isn't bogged down with complexities, or it could mean it is a less diverse and therefore less enjoyable piece of work. I find a happy medium between these two potential points. I find the album, overall, to be quite simplistic, yet in a relaxing sort of way. This is an easy listen, not one that requires all your mental effort to really take in, and that is by no means a negative in my mind.

Favorite track: Sleeping Volcanoes
