I The Mighty – Where The Mind Wants To Go / Where You Let It Go Review

It’s been about two years since I The Mighty released their Connector album and they’re now back with their latest offering Where The Mind Wants To Go / Where You Let It Go. The title is a bit of a mouthful but the music itself is a little easier to digest.

The album as a whole is a fairly easy listen but unfortunately the music is all a little samey and blends together, meaning it serves better as background music rather than as an engaging listen. The music just isn’t all that memorable and engaging so it’s not a release that you can necessarily ‘connect’ with. Everything all sounds very nice and there are some high points on the piece but there’s definitely a distinct genericness to it all.

It doesn’t mean that Where The Mind Wants To Go / Where You Let It Go is a bad album and as mentioned, there’s some great elements here and there. For example seventh track Escapism definitely has a bit more magic to it; the vocals have a lot of emotion to them and the instrumentation is nice and energetic – it’s one of the catchier and involved songs of the album.

It’s a shame because I The Mighty’s previous album was a magnificent bit of work – but maybe they’ll come back stronger with their next album.
