It's sad how today bands rarely produce albums, merely a compilation of singles and mediocre songs. Fortunately, Better Book Ends isn't one of these albums.
The first true song on the album, "Always Sayin'" shows that the Littlest Man Band isn't about happy little horn ditties or lyrics saying "fuck" for no reason. Real lyrics about emotions, minor chords, and musical depth were what came out of my iTunes.
However, Better Book Ends isn't just an emo I-hate-life-so-let's-play-the same-chords-and-yell-a-lot album; if anything it's actually closer to jazz, lounge, or alternative. There's really no way to describe what genre they are.
The Littlest Man Band- "Stayed Away"
Following is "Bad That Is Beautiful," a more somber and personal song showing off Klopenstein's falsetto. Cap on the amazingly sublime acoustic horn-filled "Better Man," then follow it with the super "It's You" and you have a near-perfect album and an amazing experience. Better Book Ends should be experienced only as a full album, although the songs themselves are truly exquisite.
It is unclear as whether or not a second album is to come from TLMB, but if there is they've set the bar very high.
