You move us to delight in praising You; for You have formed us for Yourself, and our hearts are restless till they find rest in You. -St. Augustine
If this record’s title didn’t indicate this fact clearly enough, Troubled Days isn’t a terribly chipper album. As an ode to struggling with relationships gone awry, the record maintains one constant theme that delivers a polished emotional tug for the listener; Aaron Morgan’s elevated vocals keep the focus on searching for peace in the midst of frustrating love, and it’s a genuine yearning. Though Seabird hammers this train of thought to the ground by the record’s end, it accurately reflects the nagging unanswerable questions that plague an aching heart, doing well to keep the listener engaged with this mindset.
