Maturity and Innovation

No one and I mean NO ONE out there is doing what Royal Canoe is doing. This kind of innovation hasn't been seen since early Genesis/Peter Gabriel. Complex rhythms with infectious hooks. Listen to it 2 or 3 times and you're going to be a devotee. And they are amazing live too. This album is perhaps more cohesive and mature start to finish than there last record and it probably makes this album more accessible than it's predecessor to someone that hasn't had any past experience with them. Every song is sincerely great. Highlights include: Living a Lie, Walk Out on the Water and How Long is Your Life.


Not Just Hitting Play

I heard a Studio Q interview where Matt Peters described the recording process of SGLBHATO stating, in part, "We tried to get away from the idea of just hitting, 'Play'." That is certainly true of this album.

It didn't immediately grab me like Today We're Believers did--it's the kind of album that required a few listens before it began to grow on me. It's evident they intimately care about each and every note and detail that goes into their craft.

While the entire album holds up well as whole, my personal favorites are Walk Out on the Water, How Long is Your Life and best of all, Out of the Beehive--the chorus is pure gold.
