On their full-length debut, Crown the Empire create an album packed with soaring highs and crushing lows with The Fallout. There's a moodiness about the band's sound, which thrashes in fits between crunchy breakdowns, theatrical interludes, and soothing, synth-filled moments that really captures the concept of the title. As The Fallout hurtles toward its conclusion, the listener bears witness to a series of emotional buildups and their inevitable moments of catharsis, all in all making for an album that grabs listeners and takes then on an out-of-control thrill ride that's both exhilarating and exhausting.
