Pedro the Lion [I]Achilles Heel[/I] Review

It’s not surprising that Pedro The Lion has some of the most dedicated fans out there. And it doesn’t do justice to mention that PTL has one of the most refreshingly pure sounds in a world full of monotonous or sassy acts. Singer David Bazan is a man who can combine faith and storytelling through uncomplicated lyrics and atop beautiful melodies from bassist Trey Many and drummer Josh Golden. For the novice PTL fan, Achilles Heel might be the most user-friendly album to date, without compromising the amazing songwriting and musical talent. “The Fleecing” is a prime example of simple melodies that spell out Bazan’s interest in his faith, but is considerate enough to keep it as just that.
