The Things We Think We're Missing is an eye-opening album. It made me look at music I thought I knew well in a new way and appreciate things I'd somehow missed before. Of course, all of these things can only be found on B&C's last album, Separation. To be fair, I wasn't a huge fan of that album on its release. It grew on me, sure, but aside from a few tracks I mostly.

Balance and Composure ’s sophomore album The Things We Think We’re Missing could end up being the quintessential document of the new vanguard of old school alt-rock. In the context of its release year, 2013, this kind of aggressive guitar music actually felt like an alternative to something, and it still does. Though alternative rock can no longer claim a nation, bands like B&C thrive in a sizable Twitter, Tumblr, and message board underground, where Nirvana is classic rock, Brand New is modern canon, and Neutral Milk Hotel is still a mandatory rite of passage. It’s easy to figure which bands view this space as a final destination and those who are trying to find a bridge towards the mainstream. If you couldn’t tell where Balance and Composure’s ambitions lie with Light We Made, just know this: they’re labelmates with the 1975 now.

10 release, The Things We Think We’re Missing, is just that. Thriving in a local scene that has produced bands like Circa Survive, Title Fight, and Tiger’s Jaw, The Things We Think We’re Missing, rips through its 13 tracks with all the energy and angst of a generation that never stopped being pissed off. The album opens with the single guitar line of Parachutes, and the song quickly erupts into a wall of sound reminiscent of late Nirvana and early Sunny Day Real Estate. That extreme dynamic is present the rest of the album as well. Even in their earlier releases, Balance and Composure built their sound off the same soft-to-loud dynamic seen in early 90s emo and, later, on albums like Brand New’s The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me. The altering dispositions are most evident in songs like Cut Me Open. The picked, simple guitar melody lingers as the drums tick like a clock in the background.
