Good Tiger have just released their second album entitled “We Will All Be Gone” via Metal Blade Records. Having captured the hearts of many listeners with their last release “A Head Full Of Moonlight“, with their accessible songs that stray away from the norm and the genres these musicians that make up this super-group are best known for. Giving a new path and direction for a band that have gained a massive amount of respect from the music community and fans for their approach to their soft rock style that has punch and power.
The new album is made up of melodic soft rock songs that have complex structures that are so well woven into the fabric of their material that some listeners could easily over pass them, or not notice them at all but believe us they are certainly there. This is what sets this band apart from other bands that sit within this style of music. With each member of the band bringing forth an element that turns their songs into masterpieces within their own right.
Songs such as “Blueshift” and “Just Say” set an ambient mood with Elliot Coleman’s (ex- Tesseract) voice taking you away on a journey with his unique style and dynamic range. This makes for easy listening and although this isn’t our favourite genre and we lean more towards heavy music we thoroughly enjoyed this album, with each song giving you something new to hold and treasure as you delve into the musical depths Good Tiger take you too.
One of the stand outs of the album is the drumming, with Alex Rudinger (ex- The Faceless) being one of the best drummers in the world right now. His fills and technical proficiently take drumming to another level and add a completely different feel and emotion to each take song which you don’t often get from bands in this genre. Add to this the guitar work of Derya Nagle and Jordan Ardiles (both ex- Safety Fire) and bassist Morgan Sinclair (previously touring guitarist for Architects) that complete the magnificence that make up this powerhouse of a band.
Our favourite song is opener “The Devil Thinks I’m Sinking” with it’s beautiful and catchy intro that makes way for a concise and melodic hook and a song that illustrates and lays way for an album that we believe will be well received by new and old fans alike. Every track have depth to them offering something different with each one whilst maintaining an even flow and energy throughout the album.
Definitely well worth the three years wait between albums to be given an album that is dynamically rich and that has so many dimensions that will take more than one listen through to glimpse through the complexity hidden within the tracks. This album sounds simple on the surface but as you listen more intently it reveals itself to be anything but simple and blossoms with intricacy, rewarding the listener the more times they hear the songs. An album to not miss out on for sure.
