2 out of 5
I can´t make up my mind if I like this album or not, the trio Brave Bird from Michigan really test my patience with their blend of experimental emo and artistic punkrock. The band is influenced by Brand New and Modest Mouse and doesn´t make it easy for themselves with writing songs that are filled with desperation one second and playfulness the next. What I do enjoy about their music is Chris Lieu´s guitarwork, he´s very talented and in some moments also bring thoughts to Tim Christensen in Dizzy Mizz Lizzy. The title track "Maybe you, no one else worth it" is the best track along with "Healthy" that surprised me with an excerpt of a conversation in Swedish, perhaps from a film? Also available is their "Ready or not" EP from 2010. Anyhow, this album is complex, it goes from 1 to 3 out of 5, like a roller coaster ride.
