Animals As Leaders – The Madness Of Many

In some ways, we did get Weightless Pt.2, but the similarities are not necessarily present in the composition so much as in the way that these compositions are not readily digestible upon first, second or even third full play-throughs. The Madness of Many is three people trying to accurately represent their musical ideas equally and it's bound to cause a few parts here and there to buckle under that weight. However, the record overall holds up rather well and reveals itself to be laden with impressive passages well worth remembering, despite them not being as immediately gratifying as songs off their first and third albums.

Animals as Leaders – The Joy of Motion

The third album. This is a crucial time in a band/artists career, where they must assess what is working, what isn’t, and what can be pulled together from the previous works to make something engaging to established fans, but hooking for new listeners as well. Animals as Leaders have reached this juncture, and because of it, have given birth to The Joy of Motion. This record is the heavily-anticipated follow up to 2011’s Weightless, and the band’s first album as part of the Sumerian Records roster.
