This album has a warm, acoustic sound to it. There is a lot of focus on acoustic guitar, and most of the tracks have multiple guitar tracks layered on top of each other. The drums used are softer than most rock and roll kits, however they have an interesting sound. They sound different than a typical kit. Many of the tracks also have keyboard backing tracks that give it a nice soft sound. The lyrics are thought provoking and profound, and the singer’s somewhat rougher voice compliments the soft backing instrumentals that accompany it. Some of the songs have heavy themes and bluesy lyrics. Some of the songs are more upbeat, but most of them I could easily fall asleep to. Very mellow stuff.
