At the Well
Finitude… the becoming of a storyteller
The sum of the band's parts makes for a commercial sound that might not have an easy fit on 2010 commercial radio. That's likely to be OK, because the polished quality they offer here should find converts on its own terms. If the album title tips toward pretense, that's true of the lyrics as well. That said, the musings of existential angst are mustered with enough passion to make the navel-gazing largely moot. If they can replicate on stage the studio lushness they have produced here, At the Well could be something else to make Milwaukee famous.
