Yes Yes Yes snatches you from track one with “Landlocked,” a fast-paced, sunny tune that immediately gets you up on your feet. Elsinore keeps their lyrics visual, and by the time you arrive at track 10, it feels as though you’ve listened to a short audio book – its beginning is the delightful intro, and its ending reveals the unexpected conclusion.

Elsinore have been out of the music scene for a while, and it seems to have done them some good. They sound more refined. Ryan Groff’s voice is clear, controlled and full of impact. Dave Pride (drums), Mark Woolwine (piano) and Chris Eitel (bass) also help with vocals, and when they do, they show how easily they can step up their game. During the slow songs especially, the band holds it neatly together with crooning harmonies and detailed arrangements.Should you grab a copy if you listen to songs by bands like Augustana or the Pains of Being Pure at Heart? Yes, yes and yes.
