I do love me some Sheppard. They are a great band straight outta my hometown of Brisbane, Australia and they seriously make some exciting tracks. They are also the masterminds behind some seriously great hits! From the incredibly popular \'Geronimo\' to the Australian Indie-pop fave \'Let Me Down Easy\' to the ever widely used track \'Coming Home\', Sheppard are fantastic songsmiths.
When the band announced their sophomore album you had better believe I jumped on the chance to pre-order it. My wife and I went to their first concert promoting the album here in Brisbane about a year prior to the album\'s release and it was phenomenal. These guys are as amazing on stage as they are off! But yes, their second album! Titled \'Watching the Sky\' this album really does live up to its namesake as the melodies and scope of these songs soar!
My personal favourite on the album is the last track, \'I Was Lost\'. A fantastic song filled with great dynamic range and great pacing, \'I Was Lost\' is a fantastic track to leave for the end. It isn\'t as bombastic as tracks like \'Edge of the Night\' but it also isn\'t nearly as sombre as something like \'Live For You\'. It is a great track that really shows off Amy and George\'s vocal talents as well!
Sheppard outdid themselves with album #2 and I am really looking forward to the future.
