Dude York's "Falling" doesn't hit the heights of 2017's "Sincerely" but it does follow the same formula and comes close with a couple songs that feel like clones of the past. There are quite a few good pop-punk gems, with rousing guitars and catchy melodies. The noisier and crunchier songs tend to be the stronger and more engrossing with the guitar a bit more front and center. Both Peter Richards' and Claire England's vocals are getting better on each release. A bit tighter without losing their urgency and authenticity, but England's leads still shine a tad brighter. While "Sincerely" was more about finding someone, "Falling is more about losing someone- deliberately. The album retains the power one expects from DY and a little dabbling in new territory which bodes well for further band growth.
