The Hush Sound: Like Vines

Sound — 10
Like Vines is the second studio album released by The Hush Sound. The name comes from a line in the song 'We Intertwined'. If you listen to Panic! At The Disco and then listen to The Hush Sound, you won't see much of a difference except for the more classical style of music involved that comes from Greta Salpeter's piano playing and musical influence. The band combines the singing styles of male and female and has a very Indie Pop sound. This album also features Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump with vocals on 'Don't Wake Me Up' and backing vocals on 'We Intertwined'.

Lyrics — 9
The lyrics on this album are 100 times better then the last album, 'So Sudden'. In 'So Sudden' the lyrics are a complete catastrophe, but Like Vines definatley saved this band from extinction. Their music fits perfectly with the lyrics and both singers (Bob Morris and Greta Salpeter) have amazing voices that can hit high and low notes. They could most likely sing any style of music. One of their best songs written has to be 'You Are the Moon'. It is a tasteful song on this album. The only problem I have with the lyrics are that they can sometimes just sound boring in the sense that they are sometimes too simple.

Overall Impression — 10
Overall this album is by far my favourite. Compared to Panic! At The Disco and Fall Out Boy they are much better because of their unique style. It might not seem unique because of how much they sound like Panic! At The Disco but they take Panic! At The Disco and push it a lot further. Some of the most impressive songs from the album are, 'We Intertwined', 'Sweet Tangerine', 'Where We Went Wrong', 'Wine Red', and 'You Are The Moon'. They are all around amazing songs. This album is one of the greatest albums made. Check it out.
