Grain has an eclectic 70's retro vibe that is beyond awesome. They
also have a great mix of fast and mellow songs- "Understood" and "Everything You're Not" are two examples of that balance.
The soulful lyrics to "Understood" are great- nothing awkward music-wise. "Everything You're Not" has a tremendous energy
that makes the stereo seem too quiet, begging an increase in volume by the listener. "Jump Into the Fire" is a 'cool' song-
It has an air of freedom and says "Hey, I'm going to do what I feel is real". It makes a great dance song as well.
There isn't a bad song on "The Bad Years", and that is quite a rarity.
Keep it up!
