When The Early November announced they were going to play some reunion shows, and then announced they were making another record, I had high expectations. (It’s always that way when a band reunites after a long hiatus.) Their 3rd full-length album, In Currents definitely surpassed my high expectations, making it worth the six year gap since the triple disc The Mother, The Mechanic and The Path was released. In the statement on the front page of their website, it states that In Currents is “about being pulled in a direction that you can’t control, like an ocean current or flow of electricity. A year ago, the rest of the band I never thought we’d be doing this again, yet here we are. From front to back, In Currents is a journey of the struggles and joys in life that we can’t see coming…Every second of it feels more real than anything we’ve ever done, and we’ve never been this invested before in our career”.

            In Currents isn’t a copy of The Room’s Too Cold, or the triple disc. It is the perfect blend of all of Ace Ender’s previous recordings making it not just a typical pop-punk album. If anything, this is how Pop-punk and emo should sound grown up. Enders’ projects after The Early November’s breakup, especially the resurrected I Can Make A Mess Like Nobody’s Business, explored different styles and mediums, and I think they’re filled with more emotion than his previous efforts in TEN. Their incredible energy is still there, but more refined, focused, and used more effectively to convey the messages in their songs.
