Crossing the Rubicon is the third studio album by The Sounds, released on 2009-06-02 on CD. The album mixes the synthesizers of 1980s new wave with post-punk revival. Songs vary in themes from the appreciation for music and culture, personal growth, partying, and love and relationships.


I discovered The Sounds because the song 4 Songs & a Fight was included in a Blalock's Indie/Rock Playlist. I liked the song so much, I searched for other songs by the group and fell in love with Crossing the Rubicon. This my favorite album by The Sounds by far (it has a different style than their other albums), and one of my favorite albums in general.

I own this album on CD.
