“Die the Nightmare” by Pat “the bunny” Schneeweis is a acoustic singer-songwriter punk album.
The production within the album is mediocre, and remains rather flat throughout the entirety of the record. Songs consist of a single vocal that sounds urgent in every song, and an acoustic guitar played rapidly.
Themes in the album often revolve around depression, addictions, drinking, and in some tracks (such as “From here to Utopia” and “Never Coming Home”) feature lyrics that revolve around drug use as an escape from living.
The lyrics that are found within “Die the Nightmare” are what makes the album as good as it is. Some standout lines are “I’ve been making strange friends in the desert…”, “I don’t know if you believe in ghosts, I hope you’d haunt me if you were one”, and “forgiveness from those that we hurt in this world, never was guaranteed”.
Altogether “Die the Nightmare”as an album may not boast high production or dynamic appeal, but the lyrics and spirit of the record make it an interesting and rewarding listen.
