Album Notes
Furthering the Southern rock discourse alongside Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, R.E.M., and The Drive-By-Truckers, this debut album from Northwest Florida-based The Ocean As Mistress strikes a balance between light and dark, happiness and misery, content and discontent. Much like the Police, the band challenges itself to extend the possibilities of a three-piece rock band with splashes of jubilant mid-tempo pop for fans of The Sundays, The Promise Ring, and Coldplay, distorted and atmospheric guitar sounds for fans of Catherine Wheel or Swervedriver, and a percussive twang absorbed from the Southern/Celtic folk resonating in the Southeast. The album provides a dynamic glimpse of a band that delicately and carefully assembles tracks which dismiss traditional song structures. In Ruins has quietly yet firmly established their relevance in the American Indie scene over the last seven years.

A very enjoyable album.
I really enjoyed this album. This is a great listen if you like a band that had a real story to tell, about their lives, and about their feelings. The music feels like it definitely captures what is going on in these 3 muscians lives.

I'm glad I listened to it. The entire album is definitely worth buying! :)
