DMo Recommends Signs of Light by The Head and the Heart

I've never reviewed music before. I don't really know how, so here's how I'll start:

This album is good.

If you know me, you know that THATH is my favorite band in the whole world. Their last album was released three years ago, and I have been waiting for Signs of Light ever since. Right when it came out on Spotify, I laid in my bed and did nothing but listen.

It's much different from the last two albums. People have been saying it's more "poppy." I'm not sure what that means. It has more sounds in it? I guess that's true. The songs on their last two albums could probably stand alone with just a piano or guitar. There's much more going on in Signs of Light, so it's not like what we've heard from them before. I'm fine with not getting more of the same as long as what's new is good, and I love it.

Generally, I like music that tells stories I can relate to. Much like my life, and probably everybody else's, these songs can feel somewhat bleak at times, but they always offer up hope. After listening, I sat up from my bed, feeling refreshed and more encouraged about everything, which is what made me love the first two albums. I'm glad my favorite band is back. Different sound, yes, but it's good and they still have the same heart.

I just hope it's not another three years until the next one. My heart couldn't take it.


If you made it this far, I'll leave you with my favorite lyrics from my favorite song on the album, I Don't Mind:

So your heart was stolen
From the most beautiful girl in the world
Oh, the winds blew you over

I don't mind
I don't mind
I don't mind

She told me, "never come back alone"
Never come back alone
Time will heal your soul, it's time
She told me, "never come back alone"
Never come back alone
Time will heal your soul, just time alone
Just time alone, alone
