A debut full of radio gems, No Name Face introduced the world to this soul-searching rock band--giving them some good songs in the process. "Hanging By a Moment" is one you've probably heard on the radio, and chances are that "Sick Cycle Carousel" and "Breathing" found their way into your ears as well. Though the music is derivative, the lyrics are honest, laying bare the souls of seeking pilgrims.

No doubt a ploy to grab a bit more money from Gotee Records, it's still nitce to have these recordings. Thanks to touring guitarist Mark Townsend, Knapp's shows have a much more rock feel than her studio albums do. Closing out the album is a compltely reworked "Undo Me", but many of the other songs get a great rock treatment. Sadly, not included on this album but in an iTunes exclusive track is a great rock ending to "Trinity" which should not be missed.
Mat Kearney's continues combining styles with pop, hip-hop, etc. Now a married man, a number of these songs are love songs to his wife. And, of course, there's fun jams about youth and being yourself as well.
Featuring radio hits such as "Hey Mama" and "Ships in the Night", this album brings back more of Kearney's hip-hop side to great effect. Also features such great songs as "Count on Me" and "Down" and the folk homage to his grandfater in "Rochester".
