EP Review: Fatherson Acoustic



Okay, so Fatherson put out their acoustic EP a few weeks back and I felt like I had to say some thoughts on it. Because, these aren't new songs and they're just acoustics I can't judge them too heavily because it's a song I know and love, but nevertheless, I am still here to give you my thoughts on them! 

The EP is 5 tracks long and it consists of 
1. James
2. Charm School
3. Reflection
4. Making Waves
5. Just Past The Point Of Breaking 

I have actually previously said my thoughts on a couple of these songs, but we're still going to talk about it all today! 

The EP opens with James, and this is such a beautiful song as it is, but when done acoustically it's even more beautiful and it really does show just how talented Fatherson are, and just how incredible Ross' voice is! It becomes so much more raw and heartfelt. It becomes even more emotional than it once was. Ross' voice on this track is insane! Honestly, incredible! I love it! I am so completely in awe at this track! 

The second track is Charm School, which on it's own is an incredible song! It's an incredible song, but acoustically it's a whole other level. I did review Charm School and Reflections previously and they're both very beautiful songs, and their placement on the EP is great. I love it, but because, I'm previously said my thoughts on them I don't want to be repeating myself! But I do like them, and I think they're beautiful.

The fourth track is Making Waves, which was one of my favourite tracks off of Sum Of All Your Parts, so to hear this acoustic version is something else! This is possibly my favourite off of the EP, and it's honestly, incredibly beautiful to the point where it gives me goosebumps because it's just that good! I'm in love with it, and I'm so thankful for this song's existence. I could cry over this, because of how good it is. 

The EP concludes with my favourite Fatherson track, Just Past The Point Of Breaking, and this is just next level for me. I don't prefer it over Making Waves, which is shocking because it's my favourite song, but I prefer Making Waves. But honestly, to quote Jake Peralta "Chills, literal chills". That sums up perfectly how I feel about this song because it really is just that good. 

Overall, I'll give the EP a 4 out of 5 lemons. It's acoustic, so there isn't much more I can say, but it's beautiful! I really do rate the EP a lot!

What's Left For Us? by All Over Again

  Welcome/welcome back to another blog post! Today I'm talking about All Over Again, who are a Nottingham alt-rock band! We all know, that I love alt-rock and I love Notts bands! I'm very enthusiastic about bands from my city, so I was more than happy to do some coverage on this EP when I got an email asking if I'd be willing to do a post about it. So, here we are. All Over Again released an EP yesterday (30th April), and I'm going to be talking about my thoughts on the tracks!  The first track on the EP is, Breathe Me In which was the first track released from the EP. It starts off quite slow, but it builds up, and I love that. Grace has a beautiful voice, and I love that there are tempo changes throughout the song, because at this point, anybody that's read my reviews before, knows that's the one thing that makes me fall in love with a track. I think this is such an incredible track, it's beautiful, I love everything about this track, I think it's incr

Loughborough to Lichfield by Next Year

Welcome/welcome back to the blog! Today we're going to be talking about Next Year's latest release Loughborough to Lichfield, which was released last Friday (April 30th). Now, I have worked with Next Year before. I reviewed Long Way Home back when that dropped last year. This is the follow-up single to said release, and because of how much I loved Long Way Home, I was apprehensive about hearing this track, just because I've loved everything they've put out previously, so it's that moment of "Is this going to be as good as, worse or better than the rest of the discography?". However, upon listening to it, it was clear to see that this was living up to expectations.  It has a loud, anthemic intro, it's not overly long, and it managed to keep my attention for the intro, which is essential to me. I need the start and end of any release to grab my attention to leave a decent impression. So, yeah, I was pretty impressed with the intro, it was very classic po
