VIMTV Album Review #424: The Deep Dark Woods – The Place I Left Behind
Jake: Recommended, 67/100
Tom: Recommended, 66/100
Verdict: A slightly subpar folk/rock album, but still worth a listen.
Overview: The one aspect where The Place I Left Behind excels is in its style. The Deep Dark Woods have nailed a low-key, folk/rock sound with the perfect instrumentation and production to match. However, the songwriting gets a bit bland and the album as a whole is longwinded considering the lack of variety in the material. Still, we’d say that if you’re really into that folk sound, this is an album to get.
