Dear Trent,

With Teeth is forgiven.

Renewed love, me.



I was so, so wary after the disappointment of WT, the new image that came with it, the new-found political angle (*), the whole marketing concept, but this is actually good, as far as I can judge, which admittedly is not very. In any case, I like it a lot, as in, able to play twice over without getting bored or tempted to skip. Trent will probably never be a very good lyricist, there are analogies, images and phrases that are definitely over-used, and the rest isn't exactly high literature either, but like with TF the music is so interesting that it's easy to simply not notice the lyrics' weakness. My fangirl days are & remain over, but I'm a lot less embarrassed about them now.

It's an album again, rather than random tracks stuck together on a cd. If I had to pick a favourite track at this point, it'd be Another Version Of The Truth, which is amazing. He really should do more instrumental tracks.



(*) Not that I'm not all in favour of anyone finding a political/social conscience, god knows I wish I were less apathetic, but I'm wary of Art With A Mission And Capital M Message on principle, because it rarely makes for good art, and The Hand That Feeds didn't exactly convince me TR'd be able to pull it off; what's more, in his case it seemed so... jumping on the bandwagon, and somewhat belatedly at that, and definitely a case of preaching to the converted.
