The Rural Alberta Advantage - On the Rocks
In previous RAA albums I could not help but notice this sense of contained frantic energy, like the songs are bursting at the seams with everything the band wants to say/sing/scream. It’s a thing I’ve always enjoyed about it, but I’ve also been aware that it’s directly correlated to where I am in my life. I wanted to say everything, feel everything, and it would take all my effort to keep it in and measured.
But here we are. Older and, one hopes, a bit wiser. And here is a sound of a band that is self-confident and finally ok with where they are. And I like this sound.
