Dear Hunter. The - Migrant (2013)

The fifth album from this US band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars, piano, organ, synths, glockenspiel and vocals.

Some guests added viola, violin, cello, saxophones, trumpet, clarinet, bass and vocals.

The band has reached their fifth album. A milestone.

The band started out as almost an eclectic prog band with lots of The Mars Volta and Coheed & Cambria references.

The band has moved towards more mainstream rock on this album.

The good vocals is there.

Lots of strings has been added and that removes a lot of the edges from their sound and music. 

The result is a bit wishy washy and too much rock. Too much US rock.

The quality is somewhere between decent and good too.

I am not won over by this album.

2.5 points
