When the opportunity to hear an advance of All Get Out’s upcoming album No Bouquet (due out November 2nd via Equal Vision Records) I jumped at it. I had been a fan of their previous releases and was excited to see what was going to be the follow up to 2016’s Nobody Likes A Quitter. Let me tell you, I am so glad I did. While there are common themes sonically across the whole album, each song was a surprise because of how diverse sounding they really are.
“No Bouquet” starts off with “Rose”, with its moody sound and lyrics like “I see why I’d be easy to replace” / “And honestly I never cared at all”. I knew after hearing this opening track that I was going to be in for a rollercoaster of emotions, and I was right.
Other stand out tracks for me were “Survive” (where you can definitely hear a bluesy Chris Stapleton-style influence in the guitars), “Self Repair” (with its beyond relatable lyrics and catchy Weezer-style sound) and “Trip” (where Nathan Hussey’s quiet vocals at the very end let you experience every emotion he is feeling).
Hussey (vocalist/guitarist) and Kyle Samuel (guitarist) have managed something with No Bouquet that every great album accomplishes. They take you on a constantly evolving journey while still maintaining the core of what past fans love about them.
