Pleasant Grove: The Art Of Leaving
Artist Pleasant Grove
Album The Art Of Leaving
Label Badman Recording Co.
Released 5/17/2004
The new album represents yet another stage in the band's career as it delves into different, uncharted ground in their songwriting and yet maintains a sentiment and cohesiveness of longing and desperation that has been prevalent since the beginning. The Art of Leaving is distinctively different from Pleasant Grove's previous CDs, yet maintains an aesthetic continuity between them all. It's a mesmerizing set of songs - gut-wrenching, sophisticated, built up from the barest arrangement to an often explosive climax- while echoing dense layers of sound and devices.
