  • To say the least, there is a shift in sound on this track, but I think that this makes for an interesting close to the record
  • Rather than playing it safe and closing with a sound that’s been present throughout the entire record, I think that Sledding With Tigers do a good job of actually taking a risk and closing out an album which was energetic overall with a track that’s certainly more on the mellow side
  • In terms of weaknesses, the only problem I have with The Prettiest Sound That Rain Makes is that I was left somewhat unsatisfied when the song came to its close and would’ve liked to have heard where the band was going to go with the track

      The Prettiest Sound That Rain Makes is a song by Sledding With Tigers and is the final track on their second release, The Hill Sheep. Beginning with an incredibly melodic opening thanks to the interplay between a mandolin and acoustic guitar part, the vocals join in after about thirty seconds with a delivery that is arguable the most melodic on the entire record.

      • Rain Makes is that I was left somewhat unsatisfied when the song came to its close and would’ve liked to have heard where the band was going to go with the track.

        Although I can pleasantly say that the band certainly embrace a more mature sound on this track, it sounds as if they’re only really scratching the surface here just because this track only clocks in at around a minute and a half so they don’t

        allow themselves too much time to hone this sound.

        Despite this, placing this track at the end of the record does a good job of making me excited for the direction that the band would take on their release to follow.

        Overall, The Prettiest Sound That Rain Makes does an excellent job of exploring a sound that’s heavily contrasting with the typical sound of the band and is able to close the record in a solid fashion.
