Charlie Hilton's songwriting just continuously gets better with time, although keeps much of the subject of love and loss in focus. As the band has birthed another album, it has also shown inherent evolution and quality. Although I still adore their New Wave roots and always will, I have to admit their latest album is insanely amazing. I was fortunate enough to see them live a while back and
