I think it's safe to assume the title of the album reflects the loss of the bands founder. This 15 track album is filled with solid buzzsaw power chords highlighted with janky little lead guitar parts (just the way i dig 'em)
Standout tracks on this album for me are 4, 5, 8, and 13. I seriously fucking love track 13, Second Floor, from the opening bass lines to the chugging guitars, to the super janky chorus, I dig everything about this one. I'm gonna need a lyric sheet for this one so I can properly sing it at the top of my lungs at all times until my wife points a gun in my face. I think he power pop nature of the band really takes off on this track and continues progressing right up until the end of the final track. This is a BIG album with a HUGE sound and allows for an easy escape from reality for around 27 minutes and then you can press play and escape it all again.
As usual, don't take my word for it - you can grab this album for free right now on ABA's bandcamp page (please put this on vinyl!!!) - you'll dig it, trust me. Afterward you can also check into their other 2 releases, The Reagan Years one of the most re inventive covers EPs ever released, and Robo-Pop
