Rivers in the Wasteland (Atlantic)
FOR FANS OF: Green River Ordinance, Kings of Leon
Rating: 4 Stars
Ever since Daylight debuted in 2006, Needtobreathe’s top shelf melodies have grabbed and never let go. Stadium tours and awards have followed, and the band’s momentum doesn’t slow on their spirited new album, Rivers in the Wasteland. Needtobreathe’s signature Southern rock stomps circles ‘round Bear Rinehart’s distinct vocal for another 11-song feast that just might be their best yet.
