Tomorrow marks the debut full-length release from All Get Out. A release long-coming since they started touring in 2007. In this time, All Get Out have managed to produce 40 minutes of an extremely tight and enjoyable album, entitled The Season.
It is clear that The Season will inevitably be compared to Manchester Orchestra over and over again. The similarity between the voices of vocalist (and guitarist) Nathan Hussey and Manchester Orchestra frontman, Andy Hull, is sometimes uncanny, especially on the more folk-like songs like "Let Me Go" and "Come and Gone". However, I didn't find these similarities distracting at all. All Get Out manage to inject their own unique hooks and melodies to keep them from becoming a Manchester Orchestra clone.
Really, the music sweeps from folk-type music to big-time rockers like "Lucky Bastard", while other songs, like "Subject to Change", channel the poppier side of the band. All Get Out, however, clearly put a lot of effort in the order of the tracks on The Season. Every song seemed to flow very well into the next. I found myself completely drawn into this album during one of the more unique songs, "Girl, Gun". This song showcases the more aggressive side of the band as Hussey let's it all out, but then suddenly retracts to steady strings which eventually lead the listener to the title track of the album. In "Let Me Go", we are further treated to Hussey's fabulous vocals as he bellows "Let me go..." at the end of the song.
All Get Out definitely don't hold back in this album. And, in the end, they have given us a complete package with many memorable tracks, with endless replayability. Check 'em out and let me know what you think!
You can buy The Season on iTunes and Amazon.
