ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It’s been three long years of tragedy and triumph since the sugary pop debut from The Aeronautical Legends (Rocketeer), and the wait is finally over. A Midwestern Autumn, the sophomore record from The Aeronautical Legends, is filled with songs showcasing the same style of masterful songwriting, yet possessing a tighter lyrical prowess and slightly darker production that makes for a very engaging and exciting listen.

Recorded entirely at home, A Midwestern Autumn is an homage according to The Aeronautical Legends’ braintrust Joshua Dennison. The twenty-nine year old lifetime resident of Ohio has written ten new songs strongly influenced by the entire alt-country scene about coming of age in the Midwest. There’s fear in ”Fall Semester” and joyous love in “Thrity-First of May,” but it’s the album’s more desperate leanings that carry the most weight. In “Natural Disasters,” Dennison both wittingly and honestly declares “Like a sailor on leave with the last case of scurvy / Your handshakes alone are completely unnerving,” or with even more yearning the Cure-esque “Honestly,” where he pleads to “speak to me in tongues so I can lie right back to you.”

A Midwestern Autumn by The Aeronautical Legends is really a work of art. Plenty of production tricks to make headphone fanatics squeal with delight, and artwork that really fits the emotion that is so carefully crafted within. However, it’s not any of these things that make this record so stunning. A Midwestern Autumn is a brave and fantastic new piece of Americana- ten brilliantly written heart-on-your-sleeve songs given an honest presentation. So close your eyes, imagine a cloudy fall evening and enjoy The Aeronautical Legends’ A Midwestern Autumn, beginning to end.

Great Songs
When I first heard the album I was not sure if I was going to like itm, but the album quickly grew on me. The first 5 songs are great, but the last half of the album struggles, but is more than listenable. Some of the songs have soundbites/production tricks which are quick, but were kind of annoying - my advice, just start the song as these sound tricks add not value and reduced the listener's experience.

Good Stuff!!
At first I was not sure what to expect from this young musical talent. But after boarding onto this aeronautical journey, I was in for where ever this flight took me. The musical integration and rythmns were exciting. And I also enjoyed the thoughtfulness poured forth into each word of the song. This is a journey definately worth taking!!

A great follow-up.
This album is a very easy listen. Joshua's songwriting has clearly matured since Rocketeer, and the production is a lot cleaner. Some great, earnest songs are found here. I agree with the previous reviewer regarding production 'tricks' - they're not for everyone, but they never detract from the song overall. A fine album through and through.
