ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The sophomore full-length release from Austin Taft.

A 78-minute audio dissertation on love, hate, peace, war, certainty, confusion, forgiveness, birth, death and hope.


"If darkly complex, self aware music is something you like to spend your time with, you need to pick up arms and join the War Of The Songs Of Light Against The Songs Of Darkness."
- Steven Reid, Sea of Tranquility (from a review of "War of the Songs of Light Against the Songs of Darkness")


"Taft is one of the best musicians in the state, and 'War of the Songs...' is a dynamic, thought-provoking album, worthy of any collection."
- Chad Taylor, Des Moines Cityview Magazine (from a review of "War of the Songs of Light Against the Songs of Darkness")


"War of the Songs of Light Against the Songs of Darkness is a 13-song epic that has got to be heard."
- Reggie Edwards, The Front Row Report (from a review of "War of the Songs of Light Against the Songs of Darkness")


"A self-reflective and spiritual vein flows throughout "War," but it smartly never declares an outright agenda. Instead, Taft uses it to tool his songs for enhanced power and drive. [...] Bottom Line: Austin Taft’s new album is heavy in all the right places and is wholly impressive based on its Cedar Valley origin."
- Jared Molstead, WCF Courier (from a review of "War of the Songs of Light Against the Songs of Darkness")


"Austin Taft's self-styled 'Rock 2.0' seems to involve taking every guitar-orientated sub-genre, and moulding it into something that is both dynamic and heavy. With an abundance of talent, as well as the determination to succeed, it will be intriguing to see where Taft goes next – Rock 3.0, perhaps?"
- Chybucca Sounds (Staff List placing "War of the Songs of Light Against the Songs of Darkness" at #24 in their Top 50 Albums of 2012)
