At the center of every album is a musical thesis. Silversun Pickups' "Better Nature" operates under the thesis of chaos ready to explode. With lyrics, arrangements, and a sound that is electronically raw, you feel as if all hell will break loose at any moment. As track after track moves, you begin to realize this album is wrestling with something, perhaps something bigger than yourself. Those who choose to examine their own lives are often confronted with this struggle. We are questioning who we are, what were doing, and where we are supposed to be. This album, better than most, encapsulates that battle. Of course, the search can be frustrating and we can all be chaos ready to explode.
Be good to each other,
