Crossing the Rubicon
Crossing the Rubicon is the third studio album by The Sounds, released on 2009-06-02 on CD. The album mixes the synthesizers of 1980s new wave with post-punk revival. Songs vary in themes from the appreciation for music and culture, personal growth, partying, and love and relationships.
I discovered The Sounds because the song 4 Songs & a Fight was included in a Blalock's Indie/Rock Playlist. I liked the song so much, I searched for other songs by the group. I feel in love with Crossing the Rubicon especially and bought it. This my favorite album by The Sounds by far (it has a different style than their other albums), and one of my favorite albums in general.
All songs are sung by Maja Ivarsson. Track 12 is a hidden track attached to track 11.
This is the order in which I enjoy the songs from this album, and their individual song ratings.
