    MRVSS is Matthew Ryan's Best Yet

    MRVSS packs the haunting melodies and deeply soulful sound that sets Matthew Ryan apart but the story of these eleven songs is less an individual one than he shared on his last album. While Ryan does share a number of personal moments, I felt decidedly less voyeuristic than when listening to “From a Late Night High Rise”. Both experiences are brilliant in their own ways. I feel like he was trying "and I think succeeding" to tap into a collective consciousness. Whether you are trying to make the world a better place or just trying to make sense of life and love, this album screams, “Yeah, I get it. I’m right there with you”. The trick, and the beauty, is that in Ryan's view, it’s a layered and complex tale. And like a Picasso or a really good book, you may never really fully grasp the artist’s intent, but you will undoubtedly find something new and valuable every time you revisit the masterpiece. This one is worth the price of admission and more.
