The self-titled debut for this Edmonton quartet—formerly known as Vox Humana prior to welcoming its new bass player in late 2011—is a solid collection of rock tunes that take listeners through a range of emotion and style. Ground Level Falcons performs with a sense of maturity, which comes through with a well-developed style of storytelling that brings to light some of the personal challenges each member faced during the making of the album. With stand out tracks like "Cease/Desist" and " ... Slowly Into Winter," Ground Level Falcons are off to a promising start, though a little more experimentation wouldn't hurt on future albums to show more range in tone and tempo than its tried-and-true, yet strong, rock sound.
