Falling Up "Your Sparkling Death Cometh"

Popular rock group Falling Up is back with their new album "Your Sparkling Death Cometh". While not much of a fan of their last album, this album musically picks up where they left off, but with one difference, it's way better.

Ten tracks that pretty much take you all over without straying too far. I love the more catchy lyrics and "singable" melodies of this album compared with their last.

Track one, "Circadian" comes at you slowly then hits hard with opening guitar and orchestra pieces. I love how the end of the song fades away as it began right into the next track.

"Wonder" is a really good track with a great chorus. The subtle guitar elements along with the commanding drums are excellent, in fact many of the songs on this album can be put in that category like the next track "Blue Ghost" which has a really beautiful ending.

"Diamnds" one of the tracks that Falling Up released early is one of my favorites. "Diamnds" and "The Light Beam Rider" both have loads of presence and have me repeating those first on my playlist.

The slower track 6 "Oceans" has a great pace to it. Some slight synths can be heard along with great guitar rhythms. Another really good track.

Songs "Mscron" and "Vates" are just so-so. The first led with heavier guitar and the second with piano. Still solid songs. Be sure not to skip ahead though because there's some great musical gems hidden throughout like towards the end of "Forms & Shapes".

"Slow Waves" is an amazing ending track. As it builds up it starts to sound like it's coming from a movie. This is one awesome track.

The more I absorb this album the more I enjoy it. There's a lot to it musically including almost movie-ready soundtracks. Really superb. "Your Sparkling Death Cometh" is one of the best from Falling Up's already stellar line of releases. Falling Up fans won't be let down.
