Help Wanted Nights
For The Good Life's Help Wanted Nights, Kasher smoothes out his vocals, keeping them in the "distinctive and emotive" range. He's always been an amazing lyricist, and his yelping often detracted from what he was saying. Now, his tales of blue collar love lost and whip-smart lines like "One man's bend is another man's gurney," come through loud and clear, without being marginzalied by a distracting vocal tic.
Lost in all of this is the steady improvement by the backing band that comprises The Good Life. Musically, this is the most ambitious album they have undertaken, and they perform admirably on songs like "Share of Men".
