Apparitions of Melody
Label: Flicker Records
Rumors of KITW breaking up after their debut were dead wrong: they were writing album No. 2 on tour. Lyrics continue to wrestle with spiritual challenges, while musically, the band goes darker and deeper, emphasizing the "screamo" element and setting drums on a warpath. While the Tears For Fears cover is interesting, the title track and melodic closing epic rise higher.
