Jim Payne Just discovered Acres this evening; and I am very, very impressed. The perfect blend of softer, melodic music and vocals, mixed just right with more aggressive music and vocals. It creates a very powerful effect, these juxtapositions of mood and melody. Literally some of the very best music I've yet heard in this and related genres! Favorite track: Distant Hills.

Track Name: Overburden
I am your son
Silent for too long
Scared of what I've become
And knowing I'm not involved
Its all been too much
Its getting so hard to breathe
I let you take everything
But I will rebuild
Atop your shattered bones

I must be strong
Endeavour to carry on
Find purpose and right your wrongs
Get back to where I belong
But its all come undone

And you want me to hurt like you
Your attempts have failed
I will see this through
And everything has come to be
The choices you make
Are for eternity
Track Name: The Etesian Wind
Here I stand empty handed
With a view up high of everything
Never knowing where I came from or where I've been
A flash of light you're lost to me
Leave me in pieces with nothing for thought but the hearts of better men
Leave me here and I'll try to start again

I am not the one you want
What you are searching for lies in your heart
I am not the one you want
And all your promises will fall apart

Because your faith is just a front
Your faith is just a front
I wish that you'd see the truth, but the truth is that you can't
That your faith is just a front
Don't you try and turn away
Don't you dare forget my name

Here we stand empty handed
With a view up high of everything
Never knowing where we came from or where we've been
A flash of light and your lost to me
Track Name: Peninsula
We don't see things the same way
Now I had faith in you
And faith is everything
I had no need for angels
And asked no choir to sing

So wrap me up in secrets
(And) keep them like a curse
I know how hard you tried
But you only made it worse

We don't see things the same way
Track Name: Distant Hills
If this is what it feels like under my skin
Then I will steal your heart again
My dreams have died so very often
But not this time, please not this time
I promise I will never ask you again
If you'd only take my hand
You're a child and you're looking for someone
To fall in love, and fall apart
Don't go
