The Dear Hunter - Act II: The Meaning Of, & All Things Regarding Ms. Leading mp3 flac


Act III: Life and Death is the third studio album by American rock band The Dear Hunter, released on June 23, 2009. According to lead vocalist Casey Crescenzo, it is the third part of a six-act story, following the original in 2006, Act I: The Lake South, the River North, and 2007's Act II: The Meaning of, and All Things Regarding Ms. Leading, and preceding Act IV: Rebirth In Reprise (2015).

As with Act I, The Dear Hunter have delivered a CD with an array of styles from Alice Cooper through New Orleans jazz to Mars Volta-style rock. This is a full length CD and, whilst perhaps not having quite as many stand out moments as Act I, is still a fine follow up. Crescenzo again shows what a great singer he is with his range and emotive ability. What I found in this album is very competent modern alternative rock with progressive rock tendencies.

The Dear Hunter's Act II is a musical journey of epic proportions. Whether you like the music or not is definitely a matter of taste, but there is no denying that TDH have delivered one of the most important progressive rock concept albums of all time. The exection is great, there is a lot of variety (although production quality fails to impress once again), but the key ingredient here is the storyline. Once again, the album introduces a host of lyrical and musical motives that will come to fruition later in the Acts. These moments will always strike a chord with you, further amplifying the power of this piece of music. It is a true work of art, and in my opinion, this quality is never surpassed again until Act V.

If anyone is selling their copy of act II please let me know, I'm desperately looking for this cd!! Thank you! Reply See 1 reply Notify me Helpful. Marketplace 0 5 For Sale from €. 8.

Act II: The Meaning of, and All Things Regarding Ms. Leading was released May 22, 2007. Originally, the band had written almost 2 hours of music for the album, but managed to trim the run time down to 80 minutes so as to fit on a single compact disc. Act II reached No. 39 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. The band supported the album by touring with As Tall As Lions, Saves the Day, Say Anything, Thrice, Chris Conley, The Format, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Boys Night Out, Circa Survive, Ours, and Fear Before the March of Flames. The band filmed a music video for the song "The Church. The live album, The Dear Hunter – Live, features songs from the string quartet tour from mid-2013.

Act II like it's predecessor Act I: The Lake South The River North, the band's debut EP from 2006, is a concept album. The concept behind Act Ii revolves around cynicism, ambition and human vulnerabilities, which cause one to be deceived and to fall into vicious circles entrapping them in the endless cycle of harmful behavior. The album has a prelude of orchestral tones and a cello soliloquy on The Death And The Berth which branches into a cornucopia of fomenting rhythms and coiled guitar lines coursing through The Procession. The undulating movements and curvaceous twists on Where The Road Parts and Dear Ms. Leading fluctuate between being tautly knotted and loosely flowy. The soft rock melodies of Red Hands and Vital Vessle Vindicates are laden with swirling violins and tender piano sequences tethered to the marching drumbeats.

The Dear Hunter's Act II is one of the best albums I've heard in a long time. Casey Crescenzo shows a natural gift for making quality tunes and throws one beautiful work of art after another into the listener's speakers.

Tragically, this release is horribly mastered. It lacks dynamic range, and sounds very compressed. Most likely a master made for CD, cut and pressed onto vinyl. :(
