Terra Terra Terra Mind Like A Man, Soul Like A Child
Terra Terra Terra's sophomore release, Mind Like A Man, Soul Like A Child, is a haunting effort that dissects the blazing battle between right and wrong. Lyrically, the songs beg for approval and acceptance, with front-man Loren Taylor struggling to find the balance between his Christian faith and his adult desires. It is a poetically torn release that takes its battles into the bedroom. Both the scruffier "Taking Her Home" and soft album closer "The Coast Is Clear" show a loving man resisting temptation, venting frustration through gentle, ambient indie rock. This album initially took a while to grow on me, but once it did, its brilliance was a refreshing ray of light reminiscent of Copeland. "Transmission Lost" and "Wrong this Right" bring piano punk influences into the dynamics, but it is "Now You Will See Me" that thematically encapsulates the best of their ability and imagery. This is a poignantly captivating and accessible release that successfully explores the various conflicts faced between our adult selves and our inner children. (Round Kid)
