I want to start out by saying Tyler is an incredible artist and has one of my favorite voices in music. I have LOVED all of his stuff up to this point. I was super excited to purchase this album, but… I honestly hated the sound. It’s not the content, because I love his writing. He’s a highly gifted lyricist and storyteller. But the musical arrangements feel bloated and over produced. His voice has to fight over the music to be heard and so much of what makes his artistry unique is buried behind so much noise. I don’t feel any emotion from any of the songs in this collection and some of my favorites from Purgatory were “reworked” until they are unrecognizable. I haven’t gone so far as to look at who was the producer of this one. Maybe that’s the problem, just a different vision for the music, but I hope Tyler will PLEASE go back to a more stripped down performance that allows us to actually feel his words and leave this over produced 1980’s hyper instrumentation to other artist who don’t have the same talent level and need more distractions in the work.
Huge fan of Tyler…BUT…this is bad. Reminds me of Neil Young’s attempt at disco….just doesn’t make sense.
Not worth it.
Lots of repeats and instrumentals. Really a bummer.
Disappointed . . . initially. Too this, too that, out there, not our Tyler Childers. Would have given it 1 star after first listen, but this is one of those albums that will draw you back for one more listen and then another and another. One of those albums you don't think you like . . . until you do! Kinda like Sound & Fury by Sturgill.
What happened to Tyler Childers?
This album is not recommended and it’s not even close. 3 different versions of terrible songs only makes them worse. What happened to this dude? Maybe he hit his head? Who knows.
Absolutely love this album. I’m loving Heart you’ve been tendin’ & Way of the Triune God!
So so good.
Used to like his material a lot, now he moved his themes into the religious realm, not my kind of fare. If you like that, his voice and presentation is still good.
Not my favorite
Bought ahead of time but this isn’t like his previous albums. I wished I would have waited and previewed album before I bought.

This is a big shift for Tyler but once I gave it a couple of listens I was hooked. His vocals are better than ever. Can’t stop listening.
