Highlight Lyric: “Concentric circles signal dinner time/ The tidal waves that skim the surface/ We’re split along the seams/ We’ve all been gnawing at the bone/ And your last breath left us dangling from your spine/ And that was fine”  from Restoration

Highlight Review: “While the members of The Acorn chose to keep many of the traits that have made them so popular — the delicate lyricism, the tender, multi-layered arrangements — they’ve also learned to let themselves go a little mad, too. There’s a distinct boldness that accompanies the band’s transformation, one that’s loud and refreshing.” – read more at Prefix Mag
