There’s a lot of layered acoustic guitar here, and a lot of layered vocals. Vocal effects and outstanding fill-heavy drumming also figure in prominently. The total of the parts sounds much like 90s Seattle band Alice in Chains, though instead of Layne Staley’s drug addiction focus, Lights present more palatable relationship fare. While it may not be especially innovative, this record is extremely melodic, and using the tools of Alice and Chains in more poppy material seems like a good idea.
