'Faith', the opening track, runs parallel to the album as a whole: dynamic and groovy and psychedelic and emotional. Each musician has a moment to shine and to speak. Opening with Kern's version of the Purdie Shuffle, to Marcel's polyrhythmic bass, to Eric's organ solo, and held together by John's whispered prayer that, 'we just might grow', Young Jesus offer a music uniquely in service to emotion. '(un)Knowing' is a 'meditation celebration', a song about the confusion and pain of re-examining a life-of committing to a life of experience and curiosity. Mixing the spirit and experimentation of OK Computer with the sincerity of Bon Iver, 'Root and Crown' is the first song that offers a way out of the traps and patterns of a life. A commitment to grieving, listening, and growing. A devotion to spring, sung from the depths of winter.
