If only they would have stayed on Sub Pop.
I mean, it's not terrible.
Just lacking use of the head or the heart.
It's just different is all.

I like this alright. The tracks are fun, and I think it's okay that it's different, but I do like it a little less. They can still make pop sound good at least.
Wonderful Album Start to Finish
The most driveable album on my playlist! Seldom are there recordings like this, masterpieces from start to finish. You actually SHOULD buy the CD so you can just press play and drive. If the band is reading this, there would be some phenomenal layering going on if you combined Janis Joplin's "Me and Bobby McGee" with "Rhythm and Blues." That would be so fun to see live. I can't believe people would rip on this album just because they've been fans for a long time and have something to prove. This is bliss to the ears. I can't believe Head and the Heart records get better and better.
All We Ever Knew...
Heard this band live performing All We Ever Knew before they ever recorded it during a filming day of the tv show called Roadies. It was so simple and I felt moved by it. I loved it so much that told them so and just hoped deep down that they would feel th same way. This song no longer sounds the same but I recognize the lyrics. It sounds nothing like what I heard and I hope that one day they record a live acoustic version of it. I do love their music and I'm not this type of music lover. I mostly love 90s hip hop. To me they've got agreat sound.
Please come back

Your first album is my favorite album. From start to finish it's unique with instrumentals and vocals so raw that just blend beautifully from one song to the next while still managing to stand out as seperate pieces. That being said I super disapointed with this album. After listening to each song they all sound exactly the same, with fast tempo and instumentals that jsut bleed together with lyrics i can't even understand. You got the formula so perfect the first time around it's shocking how far this one falls short. i love this band but would love to hear the sound i fell in love with. the first time I heard one of your new songs I didn't reconize you.
Still Great music
By Eric H Lazar
I find it funny the 1 star ratings from fans that liked their earlier stuff better. Yes, it's more polished. Yes, they'll probably be doing this from now on. Reminds me of the Dylan fans who protested his going electric and then realized after awhile that he was still writing great music anyway. While I don't love the entire Signs Of Light album, I do like about half of it. If you want every song on every album to be the greatest you're going to be disappointed in life.
Fell in love
There's just something about that perfect musical composition. Really. "All We Ever Knew" is just that.
Nothing new, and certainly not the head and the heart. This isn't trying something new, this is trying something safe

I saw them in concert, love the music!
The Music Industry Kills Another Band
I am getting pretty tired of the music industry and the way it feels it needs to over produce everything. The Head and the Heart is a great band, but I would guess their albums are going to be just like this one from now on. The only reason I gave this 3 stars is because I can still tell the music and lyrics are The Head and the Heart, and that this music will most likely sound great live. At least I hope so....
