Among the musical surprises of 2010 was the sophomore release from Tooth & Nail Records rock band, Ivoryline. While their debut album There Came A Lion was an admirable debut, it didn’t quite leave the impression that Vessels does. Some records impress at first listen while others slowly grow on you with each following listen. At the same time, there are some records that seem less impressive or memorable as years pass; very few records maintain a level of excitement when you hear them later on. Vessels is among those few. A catchy and anthemic rock album that is packed with spiritual meat without being completely direct all the time, and showcasing fantastic, passionate vocals from Jeremy Gray, Vessels is just one of those records that may even improve over time.
