Framing Hanley returns in a big way with The Sum Of Who We Are. I have been an acquaintance of front man Kenneth Nixon for several years now and was excited to hear of a new record from them.
The Sum Of Who We Are does contains something that is missing from a lot of releases these days, craft-work. The album is chock full of catchy hooks and great vocal work and yet does not lose its edge. From the opening track “Criminal” to the album closer “Castaway” you are drawn into the world of Framing Hanley, and it’s a pretty cool place.
I have a new found respect for Framing Hanley with this record. Taking the time to craft an album, instead of pushing out product fast to make a buck is what they did right.
Standout tracks for include “Criminal”, “No Saving Me”, and “Crash & Burn”. If you give this album a listen I believe there is something for everyone on here. Expand your horizons and give it a listen.
Solid 8.5 out of 10 on the Hellion scale for sure. This one will remain on my playlist for quite some time.
