Bliss53 has tied to shake away the burden of importance. The trio’s smash hit “Iconoclast.” The album elevated them and changed the band from a few kids in a garage band to career rocks opening for other big acts. Although the band was on a high the album created stifling expectations for the records to follow. The bands “No Alternative” followed the sound and path “Iconoclast” took.
When the band made its return with “Confessions of a Drama Queen”, almost a spiritual sequel. Each record has become a attempted at a leaner, meaner reboot of the band, yet this all has changed with “This Time Around.”
The most convincingly carefree Bliss53 has ever made. The band goes everywhere on this new album. New hits such as “Screaming Servants” and “Atlantis Grave”. The band even went back to the roots with “Shift or Scoff”, a song that sounds like it would have been on the first album but recorded in modern day.
