Bryant is quite public with his struggles with anxiety and depression and ‘Revelation’ addresses these issues head on. The album can be dark at times as themes of loss, isolation and despair are tackled. Countering that darkness, however, is the joy that music brings to life, and these two themes alternate throughout the record. From beginning to end, Bryant’s guitar playing is top notch, and his gruff but impassioned singing serves these songs well. ‘Revelation’ marks a milestone in Bryant’s career in that he channeled his feelings of darkness and sadness over the death of his father and close friend into songs, and at the same time expanded his sound into a heavier mix of rock and blues. Revelation is ultimately a rewarding album that reveals its treasures with repeated listens.
