Album Review: Young New England by Transit

Fairly Good, Based on 1 Critic

AllMusic - 60
Based on rating 6/10

Transit break the emo-pop formula and head in a pleasant, pleasurable, indie-centric direction for their second album on Rise, Young New England. Their prior outing, 2011's Listen & Forgive, was filled with heartfelt sincerity and now, with the distortion dialed back, Joe Boynton's nostalgic lyrics about lost love have a chance to shine through. The title track (an ode to drinking in their hometown, with the chorus "If you're too drunk to walk along the streets of cobblestone, you know Boston never drinks alone") and the bittersweet "So Long, So Long" play softer than the material on earlier releases, yet the hooks manage to stay anthemic and uplifting.
