Pretty solid. This sounds a lot different than his newer stuff; much heavier on the rock.

Yes , the whole album has a rock vibe to it. Having heard his newer stuff first It took me a while to get a feel for it. It is good to see his growth over time. He still stands out even on his earlier stuff.

I'm looking forward to his next album whenever it may come.

Actually thanks to you sharing this, Freedom Lasso has quickly become one of my favourite Akala albums. Never really gave it a close listen, but there are several gems "Where I'm From", "Bit by Bit", "Comedy Tragedy History".

It would be cool to hear some more rock influence in his next album. Seems like he knows how to distinguish himself from other artists.

Sharing is caring as saying goes. I read that he enjoyed working with a live band on The Thieves Banquet album and he is learning an instrument himself so we could see similar tracks on a new album.

Yes some real gems on there. I really like "I Don't Know". "Freedom Lasso" and "Where I'm From".
