The Boy Who Died Wolf

Today The Boy Who Died Wolf the new album from Highly Suspect was released and to be totally honest, I don't think I could be any more excited about this record if I tried.

It's so great.  I've been listening to it all day.  I pre-ordered it a month ago.  Of course I bought the MCID bundle.  You know, that's how I do...I want all the things; all or nothing.

As soon as Highly Suspect had announced that they were releasing a second album, I knew it was going to be amazing.  Everything they do is it was sort of obvious.

Normally when I listen to a new record, I can tell you which track is my favorite, but with The Boy Who Died Wolf  I literally don't know. All 11 songs kick ass.

I've gotta give them major props for "Viper Strike." I love that they are standing up for their opinions and giving zero fucks what other people have to say.  More people, and music should be like my opinion.

"Chicago" is awesome. This song takes you through so many different feelings in just 4 minutes and 24 seconds. All the while showing you the more sensitive side of Highly Suspect.

"Send Me an Angel" shows you a similar piece of them as well.  I dig it.

"Look Alive, Stay Alive" is pretty sweet.  Love the energy of it.  I really like the line " think you're better than everyone...well you're fucking not!"

"Wolf" is so good that I don't really even have words for it...give it (and the entire record) a listen.  It'll be your first of many; trust me.  One of the best lines in this track "...but baby I was born to rock, and now I gotta roll."

"Serotonia" is a song that has been out for quite a while now, no matter how many times I've heard it, with every listen I find myself loving it even more.  The best part is when Johnny mentions slow dancing with Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey...then afterwards he'll bum a cigarette from Cary Grant.

The '60's was...err is my favorite era when it comes to movies.  Breakfast At Tiffany's is my all-time favorite movie.  I was Audrey for Halloween this year. (More on that in a later post.)  Cary Grant, Marilyn, Humphrey Bogart...I love them all!

That's pretty much all I've got to say for now.

To recap:

The Boy Who Died Wolf Buy that mess, seriously...BUY it!

It's amazing.  You can thank me later.

I feel like this has to be done when Highly Suspect is mentioned in any way, so...MCID.
