Memphis May Fire's Matty Mullins released his on solo, self titled album on September 19 and it is somehwat expected out of him. The sound appears to be reminescent of Memphis May Fire's usual sound, but at the same time, it is slightly different. It is something all his own.
This album appears to be widely based around religious beliefs of Matty's. At the same time, it does not appear to just target those who are faithful in a higher power, but it can also be self motivating as well from time to time.
The song "My Dear", is not only incredibly sweet, but it could easily be one of those songs people turn to for comfort while they are are down. It reminds people someone's always there and you've never really been alone. It does appear as though he's speaking as God, as he said "I made you in my own image." but for the most part, it could just be one of those songs that is there just when you need it the most.
Some other stand out tracks, aside from "My Dear", are "99% Soul", "Normal Like You", and "Speak to Me"
For lack of a better word, this is a very sweet album. It truly does look like Matty gave the world a look inside his brain. It does speak of religion, but it also speaks of how he feels about the stories he hears from his fans, and several other things. Its got a little bit of everything, and you can tell Matty put a lot of work into it.
This album recieves a solid four stars.
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
