Fontana North, 2012
Coming after the breakup of a long-term relationship for lead singer Brent Jackson, the Junction's latest album turns heartbreak into an examination of human pathos on a powerful, intricately composed record. Lyrically, the songs weave thought-provoking imagery, conveying genuine emotion that, for the most part, manages to stay upbeat, as in the case of "Futurists." Even in its slower moments, like the closing track "Ashes"—which seems like a fitting title given what's been left in the wake of Jackson's relationship—the band manages to avoid the throes of melancholy and create an uplifting and powerful result.
