Gathering Mercury "Where The Others Go" Album Review!
There are few bands these days that are willing to lay their hearts out there for the world to see. Some bands are out there for the wrong reasons. They see their favorite bands on TV and that is what they want; the fame, the fortune and everything that comes with it. Their passion is getting their fifteen minutes of fame. But then there are bands like Gathering Mercury. Music is more than just what others see on TV, it’s the air they breathe. Without music their lives would be missing something and they would feel like they were going through struggles alone and never getting that release that they need. After listening to their new album Where The Others Go it is very clear to me that Gathering Mercury is making music for all the right reasons, and enjoying every minute of it.
Musically, the musicians found on this album are top notch. Each one of them gives each song exactly what it needs, soul. Lyrically is where the album stands out the most in my opinion. They seem to be pretty autobiographical which makes them relatable and that my friends, is what real music is all about.
With songs like “Awkward”, “Nothing To Me”, and the title track “Where The Others Go” the songs seem to talk to you and bring you in and let you know that you are not the only one going through the struggles of life alone.
Probably the most personal song on the album is the song “Celine”. The beautifully orchestrated music that accompanies the story of love makes this one of my favorites of the album. Gathering Mercury proves with this song alone that they are passionate about what they do and they have the ability to take what they hear in their hearts and transform it into great music!
This album is a great collection of songs that will connect with everyone who listens to it. Buying this album will be well worth the money! Their love for the music is proven throughout the album even when they pay homage to pioneers with their rendition of the classic song “Rock & Roll Hoochie Koo”. I can only imagine the next best thing would be to see them live which I have plans on doing soon!
4.5 out of 5 Stars!
