I like The Narrator. I like their sound. If you have never heard of them before this review I suggest you go out get the record and then finish reading this review. This three-piece band hails from all parts of the U.S but call Chicago their home. From the start of the record with “Son of the Son of the Kiss of Death,” “SurfJew,” to the ending with “Chocolate Windchimes” All That to the Wall is filled with lyrics that will make you miss the past but keep you guessing about your future, as you grow older. They also have a Bob Dylan cover of “All the Tired Horses” which is the only real flaw on the record, but everything else is great. I’ll keep this review short and simple before I keep rambling on and make up some weird shit, but until you listen to the record, you will understand why. .
