PostSubject: Guardian - Almost Home   Sat Apr 16, 2016 7:05 am

It's hard when a band has a history like Guardian for fans to put aside the past works that they liked so much and evaluate a new record on its own merits. This is one of those times. I like Guardian's first 4 albums so much. I didn't really enjoy Bottle Rocket all that much, though I don't think it's the steaming pile of crap that many others do.

When I first heard Almost Home, it sounded so much like Bottle Rocket, with a little Buzz thrown in, that I had a hard time not being disappointed. I was hoping when they returned it would be more in the Fire and Love or Miracle Mile sound. However, after setting this album aside after a few listens, I returned to it this morning for the first time in months. I was pleasantly surprised. If this was a new band that had no history with me, I wouldn't have any trouble enjoying this record. It's a good record!

This is one of those times I will just keep my thoughts to myself.

I will say this one thing, however.  "Almost Home" is NOT the record I wanted or expected from Guardian and I would not buy anything new in the same vein from them.

It's OK Chris.  You don't have to like Almost Home to be saved.

I like Almost Home on its own.  I, too was hoping for music more like Fire & Love but Almost Home is an album I'll spin now and again.

I haven't bought this, since i don't do crowdfunding. It's still on my wantlist. I like Bottlerocket. It sure is different from their Fire an Love stuff, but still good. I should listen to this on spotify a few times and see if i like it or not.

You can order it through Amazon if you didn't do the crowdfunding. 

Of course, if I still had mine, I would sell it.  I did.
