I’ve been a fan of The Windermeres since I first saw them about 3 years ago at 3 Kings, with Black Dots and City Mouse. I bought their first album (Anthem of the Recession Generation) that night, and it still has a strong presence among my most commonly played albums. Having said that, my opinion might be a little biased. Now that we have that out of the way, let me tell you about this AWESOME album!
There are a lot of things that made the first album great… powerful guitars, engaging lyrics, amazing vocal talent, and 2nd wave style drums. Continental Divide builds on their established foundations, maintaining their musical consistency in a way that does not disappoint, for fans of the first album!
The lyrics on this album are a little more emotional than the first album, with less of a political message. This has the positive effect of expanding the emotional range of their music, making me excitedly curious to see the direction that their future music will offer! Pick up their
