This 13 song set is as diverse as it gets while still being AFT. The record opens with "Man With a Bottle", an honest, straight to the point rock song. Other highlights include the Byrds influenced "Peaceful Days" and the finely crafted "Something to Say", both complete with jangly guitars and Beach Boys-esque harmonies. There's even a bit of a country-folk influence, as heard on "I Just Never Said Enough", which features slide guitar by veteran musician Peter Holsapple (The dB's, REM).
The album also features a guest appearance by Amy Ray, one half of the Indigo Girls, who lends her talents to the Beatles-meets-garage rock song "Dear Abbey White" as well the blues-rocker "Thirteen". The album ends with "World, Revisited", a poignant, socially conscious folk ballad that will surely leave the listener wanting more.
Produced by critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Danielle Howle and recorded in Awendaw, South Carolina, Tripping Over Nothing is truly an album that not only will please rock fans, but surely has something for everyone.
