Sound: The sophomore release of Circa Survive's lead vocalist, Anthony Green, has a lot of people talking. "Beautiful Things" is a big step in Green's solo career, supplying a very satisfying record. This go around, just like his first effort "Avalon", has Green singing his depressing, catchy songs accompanied by fellow musicians from the Good Old War. The album explores a more polished folky-bluegrass feel while staying true to the old sound people loved. // 8

Lyrics: The lyrical content and vocal ranges are where he shines the brightest. The album explores much more than "Avalon" and themes itself around the birth of his first child James. Just like his older songs though, he has a bitter tone while delivering some very poignant lyrics all while in a catchy, indie format. His unique voice and style of songwriting grabs you and doesn't let go. He gives a lot for a listener to enjoy throughout the record. // 10

Overall Impression: The first single, "Big Mistake" was released back in July of 2011 which poked a lot of interest in fans who'd been wondering if he'd return to his solo work. With 13 brand new tracks, Green doesn't disappoint. The newest and biggest single "Get Yours While You Can" sticks out on the record along with "Can't Have It All At Once" and "Just To Feel Alive" for having a heavier sound than the rest of his work. This work is debatable his best yet with songs like "The Blood Song" that will having you humming the melody and the infectious beat of "How It Goes". This is one album you do not want to miss. // 10
