Despite not following an overarching concept this time, Migrant still contains The Dear Hunter’s unique approach to song writing. Plenty of Acts and Colors show up, and that’s fine. We don’t want Crescenzo to abandon the foundations he built the Dear Hunter on. But Migrant shows just as much restraint as it does fireworks (as the raw and stripped down closer, “Don’t Look Back,” proves) and overall just feels more natural. This is going to be the record you give to your friends when you want them to check out The Dear Hunter. So while Migrant is Casey Crescenzo’s most accessible record ever, it’s also his most honest and real Dear Hunter LP yet.
