In the style of fellow folk rockers Blue Traveler, Broken Trophy has scored a hit with their latest CD, Out Here And Alone. With members from across the United States and Europe, they have come together to create a masterpiece of music.
The disc begins with the catchy “9 More Days,” dancable and multi-layered. It’s a song about coming home from tour. The band members all come from different parts of the globe, so it is fitting that the disc’s title comes from the lyrics of this song.
The rest of the CD is a perfect mix of calm ballads and energetic songs. Throughout the disc, but especially during the calmer moments, lead singer Lewin Barringer’s voice is soothing. On slower songs, such as “She Tried” and “Back Home,” you can feel the emotion.
The mixture of instruments on the opening of “Something Inside Of Me” is really beautiful. It leads into a perfectly paced song that is different from a lot of the music that is coming out these days. The music bounces along with the vocals at a surprising rhythm.
A common theme on the CD is love, as with so many other discs. Broken Trophy doesn’t stick to the same old heartache ballads sung by young new singers; the words here are more mature. In the end, if you are looking for something fun to dance to or something calming to fall asleep with, this CD fills all of the prerequisites. It is something for all moments and emotions.
