regrouped and hired another rhythm section before releasing their best work to date, Get Our Way
. The group's folk-rock influences are more exposed on this album, as the heavier guitar riffs present on Learn to Lose
give way to excellent pop craftmanship and more emphasized and impassioned vocals from Michael Kastelic
. Witness the melancholy chills induced on "Hand In Hand" or "Time Alone" and the subtlety of the surging instrumentation on the power ballad "I'll Wait." Though a couple of psychedelic pieces stick out, The Cynics
have struck a balance on Get Our Way
. Every song is imbued with a tight focus that marks rock and pop at its best.
