Bleachers: “This album is about wanting to
hold joy, and not understanding why you can’t.”
Read full NME interview here.
NME says: “With a little help from Lana Del Rey and Bruce Springsteen,
Jack Antonoff has crafted an album full of desperation and longing to break
free … Bleachers’ third album is the strongest effort so far – the most cohesive,
with the most poignant lyricism and musical moments. Antonoff has often
described his songwriting as a way to figure things out, and that line feels like
a Eureka moment. We need that tension to make the highs remarkable and the
good stuff important. Plus: without it, we couldn’t get records as good as this
taking us on that journey.” Full review here. Score: 4/5.
Turn Up The Volume: Bona fide singer/songwriter with different vibes
for different moods. From sad to sprightly. From melodrama (with The Boss)
to heartfelt romanticism (with Lana Del Rey). From the liveliness of Vampire
Weekend to numbers 91 & 45. Great songsmiths make great records.
