Some Quiet Majesty's unifying theme, the thread that bobs and weaves throughout, is pure wonder. Not just wonder in the conventional sense of watching an infant reach into the sun or drift silently to sleep. There’s plenty of that here. But there’s wonder at the chaos, too, the simultaneous delight and terror of finally embracing the disorder in the universe you’ve always known is there.
The third record from prattle on, rick. embodies this duality, swinging back and forth from bounce and elation to fear and dread, sometimes in the span of a single song. Such is the life of a parent raising a child. But one need not be a parent to catch the feeling here; if you've ever been a child, you should hear this record.
