Whole Damn Mess Album Review

Hey y’all!

While being home on maternity leave, I’ve found so much free time (ish?) to try out new things and figure out ways to make some “me time”. I’ve tried adult coloring, reading books, obviously blogging, some yoga, and listening to great music to help myself relax!

One of the coolest new groups I have found is Whole Damn Mess. Their debut album, The Queen and the Outcast, is a unique love story for rock and roll dreamers. It’s essentially a fairy tale – on the surface the clichéd tale of two archetypes, the Rich Girl and the Bad Boy. Lead singer/songwriter Don Miggs’ revealing, autobiographical songs share a complex and richly detailed truth. Throughout the course of the album, Miggs goes on to realize that having everything you need doesn’t mean that you should give up on what you’ve always wanted.

Whole Damn Mess reminds me of One Republic or Train, with a light, fun, rock feel and I am loving some of their energetic songs. Although I have yet to hear it on the radio, I’m sure I will soon- it just has that “it” factor!

All of the songs on The Queen and the Outcast are pretty great, but I definitely have a few favorites! One of my favorite songs on the album is called “Anywhere Without You”. It’s a calm, mellow, beautiful song and I just had to share the lyric video with you all!


My other favorite is “And Then We Were”. It’s a little more upbeat and pop-y, and I love it because it documents all the events of the lead singer’s wedding day- how stinking sweet! You’ll fall in love with it once you hear it, too!

Here’s the full tracklisting for the album:
