Option 22 - The Change

Change – To make or become different (verb). It’s a rarity for an album to have songs with vast differences in tone, instrumentation, method, tempo and direction without sounding like a CD compilation created by an avid fan. Option 22 has found a way to compile eleven diverse magnificent tracks while maintaining the consistent message and flow that an album should. This is a feat that deserves ample recognition. When you listen to the eleven tracks on Option 22’s new album, The Change, you will come to realize not only the musical reasoning behind the title, but the ever so powerful transcendent message throughout – a message that is asking, challenging us to actively pursue changing ourselves and the world for the better.
