This is a very romantic, emotional and sometimes gospel-infused album with some good ol’ country and fun mixed in too. No, it doesn’t sound like Boondocks or Pontoon but their sound has been evolving since those hits 10-15 years ago and they do give us Over Drinking and the super fun Wine, Beer, Whiskey. I love listening to this album from beginning to end.
Not sure what people expect. This is one Great sounding album from start to finish. Just because it's mellow or don't sound like their other albums does not make it trash. Try letting your guard down and showing some emotion.
This album is mostly about depresion and struggles. The songs are way too slow and there is nothing to get up and dance too like their previous albums. Yea, the vocals are good and all but I kept fighting to stay awake listening to this album. Cmon, you're a young group not a bunch of old farts.
It may not be chock full of anthems and “wooooo!” songs like other albums but this is the LBT album a lot of folks probably needed. (I know I did.) Ethereal, introspective, all about heartbreak, the past, empathy, longing, and struggle...all of those emotions and realties that so many feel at the other end of the emotional spectrum. That being said (written) though, it’s not a sappy ballad-heavy product, but each song shows depth, complexity, and exploration of thoughts that make it more than just a bunch of slower songs. It really makes you think and that opens the door to make you feel much more deeply and appreciate the songs. And hell, I’m still beltin’ it out and singing right along with each lyric. Who says songs that aren’t up-tempo can’t be “anthems,” too? Thank you, LBT...bravo!
I haven’t purchased this album yet...but I definitely will be! I listened to all of the songs & I wasn’t disappointed with any of them! Usually little big town is a hit or miss with me & this album is definitely a hit!!! Love it!!
I think I can count on one hand the number of iTunes reviews I’ve written. This album compelled me to write one. It is so incredibly good! A true masterpiece. By far the best album of Little Big Town’s career! Every song is good! There are flavors of Fleetwood Mac on a song or two. A little Joe Cocker feel on one. Pure country on a few! And Beautiful vocals on each song! I can’t recommend this highly enough! Absolutely love it!!!
Once again another incredible gift from this extremely tallented band! Yes it's different than their other work, but it shows the depth of their talent! At the core of each song, , it's true LBT with the harmony and thought provoking lyrics. Can't wait to hear these songs live! GREAT JOB LBT!!!
Great album! The vocals from this group never disappoints. Questions is the standout on the album, but it’s a hard call with so many great songs to choose from. Forever and a Night and Next to You are also top of my list. Even Wine, Beer, and Whisky, is a fun and creative take on a typical drinking song we have all heard 100 times.
Nightfall is an exquisite collection of rich, full bodied songs. The lush production is stellar. This is Little Big Town’s best album and it is an instant classic. The album starts with the soaring Next to You and never descends through the next 12 tracks. It’s hard to pick a favorite which is why it should be listened to from start to finish.
Everyone has a different story and experience. I saw Nightfall performed in NYC during the record release party at Carnegie Hall. Each song is the voice of a different person or couple. Some people are celebrating boisteriously in bar, some people are relfecting on a personal hell, some are reflecting on how much the love and celebrate the other. Some songs celebrate the uncelebrated. I think it is excellent. What ablums used to be. Enjoy!
It’s so rare that I would purchase an entire album...but EVERY song is musical genius! Congratulations Little Big Town...this album is CMA, AMA, CMT, ACM, & Grammy worthy, and WIN for Country Music!
I’ve followed these guys since their first album. Big fan. In my opinion, this could use more grooves and less technology. Their vocals are perfect, as always, but it needs to be more fun. Too many dark ballads. Just my opinion.
The harmonies on this record give me the chills and gave me the feels! “Questions” is my favorite song on the record besides the singles “Sugar Coat” & “Daughters”. Karen Fairchild is a god. The end.
I love the storytelling songs like “Sugar Coat.” I love the country vibe in “Over Drinking.” They are different from the same boring songs you hear from the male dominated country radio. I pre-ordered this album and I hope you guys too. Please give this album a listen when it is released.
