The Hotelier

Goodness

Tiny Engines

4.5/5 stars

To state it simply, Goodness is just that. The third studio album release from the trio hailing from Worcester, Massachusetts is a leap from their 2014 sophomore release Home, Like Noplace is There. Vocalist and bassist Christian Holden delivered a broody, cathartic, fast-paced narrative of love and loss that gained attention of emo/post-hardcore fans. Goodness is about personal growth. It’s about deconstructing yourself to find potential for progression. The lack of anguish on Goodness in comparison to that of Home, Like Noplace Is There leaves space for bone-chilling emotive intimacy. The album opens with Holden reciting a poem about solidarity with the moon and a perspective under the moonlight. Basking in the light of present day to reevaluate the past is a recurring theme throughout the album. Viewing familiar things and past events in a new light in order to achieve a secure sense of objectivity is part of acceptance and personal growth. Goodness is absolutely stellar. It exceeded all of my expectations. – Bridget Fessler
