On semi-acoustic opening track "Charon", an air of laid-back artistic gloom is incorporated before lead single"Sisyphus" sees Nash up the tempo to a high which continues throughout the remainder of the record. Named after the Greek myth, "Sisyphus" is Toothless' take on the tale of a man whose punishment it is to roll a boulder up a hill every day, only for it to roll back down again. Despite it being the last to be recorded, the track's blistering guitar hooks and heady vocals make for a winning combination and is up there amongst the album's finest moments. (…)
The Pace Of The Passing is an expansive and ambitious record that should delight fans of Bombay Bicycle Club but also pull in listeners not be so acquainted with his previous work.
(The Line Of Best Fit)
I’m usually a big advocate of listening to albums all the way through on a consistent basis, but with The Pace of the Passing, Nash as Toothless provides a unique experience where his music works equally as well as whole as it does as listening to the tracks at random. It’s not just attention to detail that accomplishes this. You can have the most articulated and polished album, but still fall flat. There is an authenticity that bleeds through this album. It is proper DIY- rugged and unique enough to know this is coming from a human, yet polished and carefully crafted enough to feel the pride and excitement in sharing a work of art for the public to claim. Toothless has something special with The Pace of the Passing and it is something that should not be ignored.
