"Worst Confessions Best Intentions" - Rocket Ship

Favorite Tracks: Absent, My Car @ Your House, Out Of Place

Rocket Ship are an alternative rock band from Massachusetts. Their latest release, titled "Worst Confessions, Best Intentions," was released on June 1st, 2017. "I Said Forget" is a really good opener that made me like how this band sounded and wonder what the rest of the record would sound like. There is a bit of variety in this record, mainly in the lyrics, but I'll get to that in a moment. I thought "Buckley," "Selfish," and "What's Eating Gilbert?" had really great instrumentation. One thing I like about this EP and this band in general is how blunt and honest but also detailed and descriptive their lyrics are, and "Out Of Place" is a perfect example of this. "My Car @ Your House" is a song that stood out to me lyrically. It seems to be about opening up (or not doing so) to someone about how you feel. The situation that the lyrics are trying to portray makes it one of the most emotional songs on here and a bit different from the lyrics of the other songs. The lyrics weren't the only thing I loved about "Absent." I enjoyed every part of the track, from the instrumentation to the lyrics to the vocals. "I've Got To Leave" is a softer acoustic number to conclude the release. I enjoyed a lot of the songs on this record and a lot of what this band has to offer with those songs.
