Revision is the 4th release to follow up what was honestly a pretty awesome album called Beautiful Death. When I heard Slaves was going to grant us with a raw acoustic based Ep my heart soared. I just knew instantly the sound was going to be off the chain.
'Body On Fire' paints a scene of letting it all hang out and turning down the lights for a night of passion. Jonny never disappoints getting the message clear across with his vocals as he brings the lyrics to life. The song helps set the mood for what is ahead very well.
'I'd Rather See Your Star Explode','True Colors' and 'The Pact' come off Beautiful Death but are offered on Revision in spruced up formats. While the acoustic settings definitely give a whole new feeling to the songs I prefer their original versions.
'My Soul Is Empty And Full Of White Girls' is yet another Slaves song revisited from a previous release. It was featured on the bands debut album Through Art We Are All Equals in 2014. After hearing both versions I can conclude nothing beats the heavy natural recipe.
'Down For The Ride' is by far my favorite jam to come from this band yet. Immediately the listener is greeted by a captivating melody that holds everything together perfectly. On this track Jonny Craig teams up with Jessie Abby to make for a truly beautiful masterpiece that will make you think. I feel 'Down For The Ride' showcases the best of the vocalists ability. To tell a story and have it envelop every emotion possible one can feel is unlike any other. The story is placed out before us with grace. It is the story of falling in love,facing your past head on,conquering your fears and learning to let go.
I'd have to say Revision is like a slice of good old fashioned pecan pie. Once you have a bite of it you want more no matter how many servings you've had.
