This album is definitely different from past TRS albums, but it still holds the raw emotion that Bryce is so well known for. "Hills and Valleys" is hands down the best song on this album, anyone can relate going through the ups and downs in life. Two other strong songs are "do you believe" and "walls" The other songs on this album are not as instantly likable as the other three mentioned, it takes a couple listens to start to love them, and really understand the emotions from them, but do not get me wrong the other songs are very worthwhile once you get into them. They just don't have the instant catchyness of many of his previous songs.
one song to me that was a let down, was "japanese exchange student" where bryce basically butchered the song with the ending singing, "i love the japanese, those from japan and overseas, and they love me"
another song, "tara, I'm terrible" which is a ballad for his wife, does not have the same ring as some of his previous acoustic songs like "goodbye waves and driveways" but still is not a complete lose.
this album is pretty darn solid, with a couple outstanding songs.
