Hyland "Weights And Measures" by Grant Yoder (cmaddict.com) on 2011-04-20 15:19:10
Hylands debut album Weights and Measures delivers. A driven album, produced by legend Aaron Sprinkle, brings to mind the style of the Foo Fighters, The Offspring, or Skillet.
They have been able to put into words what I, the listener, was hungry to hear. They stripped away the pretense and fluff and they unabashedly sing about Faith, Hope, and Love….and just about in that order. I don’t think I could say it better than Hyland frontman Jon Lewis when he says “I absolutely love writing songs with a clear message, all while feeling completely genuine and connected. That’s not always an easy thing to balance. And when you’re combining rock with intention, you better do it with authority, and you better do it well.” Very refreshing to hear and reassuring that musical integrity is being passed on.

As we smiled at the people we met on our walk I wondered at the social custom that requires face-to-face congeniality on a bike path among strangers who would soon be in our respective cars fighting over a lane change. It’s easier to be mad at people when we can’t see their faces.
