The Mallard ~ Finding Meaning In Deference
The Second and final album from The Mallard.
There's an unapologetic maelstrom of dark energy simmering beneath the surface of these tunes, but it never subsumes some of the group's best songwriting efforts yet.
The myriad guitar/vocal interplay is sharp as ever, the pissed-off is turned up to 10, but there's an ever-present bop and hook to even the most bummed-out tunes here.
This record catches them in excellent form at the zenith of their powers, a guitar somehow hung from the rafters for the rest of eternity.
