Album Notes
This record represents a real accomplishment for the brothers in the band Village. Having gone through many different variations of the band, this record returns with the "Frequency" album arrangement of instruments. Though the instrumentation is much the same, the brothers have exploded past their previous bounds of sonic range. This record comprises a number of genres ranging from rap, rock, funk, and folk as well as a seamless flow between the styles of Riley and Landon's writing abilities. From the Red Hot Chili Peppers inspired "Bulletproof" to the Simon and Garfunkel tribute of "Macreery". Landon sings as though his life depended on it with the words "If the papers say that it's all over soon, I guess I'll be left holding on to you" about a parent telling their child of a coming divorce. A common theme of reaching for deeper emotional levels comes through as it hasn't on any other record (for example Force In My Soul, and Between Now and Forever - the anthemic climax of Dear Destiny). The sentiments Riley sings for his new bride on "Your Hero" bring out the sensitive and simply beautiful side rarely seen in his writing. This is a record that has something for everyone.

All instruments were recorded by Riley, Landon, and Sean Wilkinson. Warren Huart (who produced the EP of this record) and just recently recorded with Aerosmith, and has done previous work with The Fray. Phil Allen (famous for work with Adele) engineered.
