Limit Of Love is the third studio album by Australian indie folk rock band Boy & Bear, released in October 2015 via Island Records.

Boy & Bear are river-boat slow, that kind of deceptively smooth-flowing pace that looks calm and languid on the surface but is moving quite fast underneath. Limit Of Love cruises along easily, keeping a lively enough pace that it doesn’t sink into the doldrums. It is, in short, a solid and well played album from a band that has garnered some well-deserved attention over the course of their career.

Limit Of Love was apparently recorded almost entirely live-to-tape, which is impressive given the clean, precise sound quality (kudos to producer Ethan Johns). That clarity of sound especially showcases the talent and intricacies of the instrumental musicianship on the album.

Jonathan Hart, Boy & Bear’s resident multi-instrumentalist, adds a really interesting texture to the album especially. Limit Of Love features Hart on keyboard, banjo, and mandolin among other things, which really add depth and colour to the album.

The lead single, “Walk The Wire”, is a good, tense little song that includes the line ‘there’s heaven in a folk song’ which, sometimes, is pretty true – and Boy & Bear wouldn’t write the music they do if they didn’t believe it.

The tone of the album is quite moody and obfuscated – “Showdown” is insistent, the low drums and bass sounding almost malevolent up against the choral sections and the highlights of steel guitar. It makes for an interesting album, the emotions a mix of dark and light that bring each other out well. It has texture and pulse. 

Limit Of Love is a solid, layered album that’s well worth checking out for music fans of all ages and genres.

Check out the tracks: “Walk The Wire”; “Limit Of Love” and “A Thousand Faces”.

This LP record with printed inner sleeve and digital download is pressed in Australia on black vinyl.
