Shane Hines

All the Quiet, All the Chaos

Shane Hines has won me over with a genuine passion for his craft over the past few years. There are some musicians who are in it for the sake of the music- you get that feeling with Shane. With his new album you can notice some significant changes from everything Shane had done in the past to now. The production is better, the song writing is better, and his vocals are about twice as good as they were. On this record it sounds like a young Jacob Dylan is singing in places… but really it’s Shane Hines. His vocal work is tremendous on this record and everything on this 9 song album sounds great. The production and the vocal work are a step up for Shane, the other step up for this singer/songwriter is his song writing. Not every song on this album is excellent, but everything is good. Shane did some co-writing with this album and you can tell while listening through this record, it’s a diverse album; especially when you look at his previous work. The lone problem with this album isn’t something you’d expect. I mentioned how good Shane’s vocal work is on this album- it really is great- but some songs sound differently than others- like it’s a different person singing. I’m not saying a different person sang the songs- just that he sang some songs in a different style. It’s funny, that diversity helps his cause on several songs, but it also hurts him on the vocals. Shane Hines’ “All the Quiet, All the Chaos” won’t win over everybody; it’s an independent album, so it gets the benefits and the negatives of getting that tag. Still, Shane did a great job with this record and it’s his best work to date.
