Bully return with their third album and it's their most expressive and powerful yet. Sugaregg roars from the speakers and jumpstarts both heart and mind. Like My Bloody Valentine after three double espressos, opener Add It On zooms heavenward within seconds, epitomizing Bognanno’s newfound clarity of purpose, while the bass-driven melodies and propulsive beats of Where to Start and Let You are the musical equivalents of the sun piercing through a perpetually cloudy sky.
On songs like the strident Every Tradition and Not Ashamed, Bognanno doesn’t shy away from addressing “how I feel as a human holds up against what society expects or assumes of me as a woman, and what it feels like to naturally challenge. Other stand outs include the swirly Like Fire and slower, more contemplative songs such as Prism and Come Down.
