Canadian quintet The Glorious Sons return once again with yet another beauty of an album in A War On Everything. Their follow up to 2017’s highly regarded Young Beauties And Fools, much in the vein of their last release AWOE is a truly glorious recording that showcases what The Glorious Sons are all about, first-class songwriting, highly immersive and engaging melodies that transport the listener on an audible rollercoaster through fourteen majestic tracks. 

Their approach is subtle, no shock and awe here, they just let the music do the talking. From the off you get what AWOE is all about, beautiful storytelling infused with intricate guitar work and easy on the ear compositions that draw you in with each and every track. The albums self-titled track is the second track on the album and rather than pushing a banger in your face, they opt for a track which is delivered at a canter and showcases their craft perfectly. 

The Glorious Sons have continued on from where they left off and like artists, in the vein of The Magpie Salute they just live and breath this ethereal style of music which flows from within, don’t get me wrong there is plenty of punch for your buck! But it’s tastefully delivered across the album. The Juno nominated and award-winning Canadian band have done it again, producing an album of timeless quality, a band with a vast amount of experience they seem to go from strength to strength and are showing no signs of letting up just yet.

It may have arrived late in the year but A War On Everything could well be one of this year’s must-hear albums.
