Release Description

Each of Life Doesn't Rhyme's eleven tracks are strikingly coherent, near-infallible in their dogged composure. Accessible and clear, the album is easily 20 Miles' most sophisticated record to date, a superlative Bauer earned by sheepishly abandoning all the goofy, bleeding jubilance that made JSBX so hopelessly scattered. Now, Bauer's guitar shoots swiftly through his band's basic roots-rock, establishing prominence while still eschewing loping solos; Bauer's vocals, clean and wobbly, humbly offer quiet, plaintive observations ("My dirty laundry tops the list of my confusion"). 
-Amanda Petrusich Pitchfork.com 6.9/10
