The Pierces
Light of the Moon (Universal Records)

By: Alex Steininger

Allison and Catherine Pierce, two sisters from Birmingham, Alabama, come together on Light of the Moon. The album is filled with beautiful harmonies and rich layers of acoustic and electric guitars, all backed by a steady rhythm section, propelling the songs and ensuring the sky is the limit for the duo.

Trading off between tender, heartwarming ballads and glorious pop songs, The Pierces know how to keep an album flowing, hitting both peaks and valleys, and giving the record a well-defined sound, while mixing it up with enough variety - from folk-pop to made-for-radio pop-rock.

Here is a record that contains a collection of tracks that all stand on their own quite well, but when put together create an album of some of the best modern pop-rock to, hopefully, hit the airwaves.

Warm, rich, and slick without losing feeling, this is a well-composed record that knows its limitations and plays well within its given boundaries. I'll give it a B+.
