Eight days ago the world was blessed with the final installment in the Brave Saint Saturn Trilogy.
The first of the three albums, by BSS, a side project for Five Iron Frenzy's Reese Roper's darker more emotional lyrics, came out in 2000. So Far From Home follows the USS Gloria, a manned space craft bound for Saturn. In 2003 BSS released The Light of Things Hoped For, continuing the story of the crew on the USS Gloria. I don't want to give away too much because these albums are must-listen-to's.
Twice in my sleep I've sang BSS songs. Maybe more, it's only been heard by others twice.
So yeah... anyway. The third and final installment of this space trilogy came out the 15th, and three songs are free to listen to on: http://www.purevolume.com/bravesaintsaturn.
Since these albums are structured to tell a story, while the individual songs are powerful and creat a rush in ones heart, the real impact comes in the entirety of the album and story.
The Light of Things Hoped For, leaves listeners with a dramatic climax with little resolution. So fans waited five years to hear the end of this.
