The transition from carefree adolescence to decision-laden early adulthood is the complex subject intricately and emotionally evoked on K's Choice's fourth studio album, which is accompanied here by a second disc of live material. This Belgium-based pop-rock-folk five-piece, fronted by the sister and brother writing team of Sarah and Gert Bettens, depicts in stunning depth the swirl of love, career, and growth experienced by twentysomethings everywhere. This is most notably captured on the project's title track, a look at how attaining true happiness is always another step ahead. The idea that life should be lived to the fullest ("Live for Real") and not to the beat of others ("Busy") is explored, as is the joy of finding true love ("Favorite Adventure [The Wedding Song]"). Engaging guitar, bass, and percussion work is in abundance throughout this appropriately titled album.—JP
