Jon Foreman – ‘The Wonderlands: Darkness’ album review

In the third installment of his Wonderlands collection, Jon Foreman continues his “opus of light and darkness,” with the EP titled Darkness. Despite its name, this short set doesn’t play like a musical dirge, rather, keeping the Wonderlands tradition alive with sonically diverse sensations and ongoing brilliance. Lyrically and vocally, songs like “Larger Than Life” bark a Switchfoot-like timbre, but the undertow of Foreman’s new musical direction continuously pulls the listener into uncharted, but welcome waters. Like an island, “June & Johnny” is a perfect interlude within this seven-song offering, and features Sara Watkins of Nickel Creek fame. “Inner Peace” is the culmination of what sets Jon Foreman apart, as the vulnerability and emotion experienced in his vocal performance seems to connect with our very own inner voices and cries.
