Best Album and songs of Anthony Green
• Album: Beautiful Things
Green spent years facing post-hardcore bands such as Circa Survive and Saosin. Over these past few years, he has become fixated on growing his solo career, and he did so with the album, “Beautiful Things”. Across about 13 tracks, Green moves beyond his roots, making reference to country, pop, and punk for the effort that validates his enormous musical breadth.
The album is a little bit all-encompassing and not one particular tone. Representing the album’s core sensibility, “Blood Song” is a rugged homage to the country, made complete with a guitar and with vocals such as a hillbilly Rivers Cuomo. This lyrical content is the standard Green-ian poetry.
Stirring down the melodic spectrum, the song “When I’m On Pills” employs reggae as well as psych-rock to discover love and dependency, forming a faint feeling that creates a captivating change of pace. The song, “Do It Right” subsists as a borderline between the country experimentation and modes; it’s a message in vocal complexity and harmonies, just like a campfire hoe-down. The tracks excel due to their consistency with the Green sonic resume as well as samples of his uplifting inventiveness.

“How It Goes”
• Young Legs
There are so many tracks on the ‘Young Legs’ album which are sincerely beautiful bits of music, with the title track being a part of them. The jaunty intro opens the way to a stripped back instrumental with the star crooning over them, and singing in his trademark emotive tones. It is a moving song with a slanted final verse which makes him sound ethereal.
The entire song comes together in a spectacular mesh of complementing resonances, a haunting ensemble of both love and pain, and it is one of the toughest moments on the ‘Young Legs’ album, as well as the most emotional. The stripped back track named ‘I’ll Miss You’ is a similarly gripping melody, being an excellent song which enables Green to offer some of his best goosebumps-inducing words since the ‘Spirit of The Stairwell’ track.
Even the shortest track ‘Stolen’ succeeds in being touching, despite only having a few lines. Credit needs to be given to the producer, Mr. Will Yip, who gave it a polished shine

“I’ll Miss You”
• Album: Avalon
Avalon is generally a somber, acoustic affair, and has the main exception of being lead-off single named “Dear Child (I’ve Been Dying To Reach You)”. It is the frankest pop song Green’s has ever written, covered in high-gloss sheen and just enough grit; the song sounds like it may have come from the recent album of Used. What is really thrilling about the song, however, is Green’s vocal delivery. Green sounds focused and thoughtful with each lyric, with a bite not overheard since recording the group’s Translating the Name song. The remainder of this record apart from the Album Leaf-esque instrumental called “Springtime Out the Van Window” is folksier and stripped-down due to Green’s backing band, the Good Old War.
The most lyrically honest track is the disc’s shortest and is under two minutes. In “Slowing Down (Long Time Coming)” Green was seen openly confessing his relationship with somebody. It was considered bold since Green is now happily married to his beau, it makes a listener respect his candor and openness even more. It takes a particular kind of person to be mentally grounded and emotionally intense as he is melodiously gifted; Anthony Green is that man.
The biggest themes found in Green’s lyrics on the Avalon album are love, redemption, and forgiveness.
