Separation by Balance and Composure -
This album wasn’t bad to workout to today.
Separation is full of dreamy guitars, hard hitting, distorted chords; and introspective lyrics. It also has a handful of really great driving tracks full of anger and discontent. I also love Jon Simmons’s vocal delivery. I saw B&C live in December and have been a fan ever since.
While running on my elliptical, (my machine of choice) I found that even during the slower tracks, I still found myself keeping a good pace, remembering the driving, hard hitting tunes that were played shortly before.
Also when I work out, I like when my mind wanders and I’m not thinking (or rather overthinking) of the task at hand; because exercising can sometimes get boring when you do that.
While on the elliptical, I found myself concentrating a lot on the lyrics (which are one of my favorite things in any genre). Many songs hit home for me, which made me even more motivated to push harder.
But whether you’re at home or at the gym, I hope you enjoy this record as much as I do and have a great workout. :)
