Furious Hooves:

"The opening line on Rainwater's sophomore album asks “What the hell is my Saturn Return, a place I go or a lesson I learn?” In Western Astrology, a “Saturn return” is when the planet Saturn returns to the same position that it occupied during one's birth, resulting in a period of extreme personal growth and change starting in one's late 20's and lasting into the early 30's. Saturn Return is also the sophomore album by Seattle band Rainwater, and represents a similar re-birth for the group. Their first record, Swimming in Sunlight, was primarily a solo effort by primary songwriter Blake Luley, with help from NYC-based friends, Saturn Return is the work of a highly collaborative band truly coming into their sound. journey documented on the band's Place EP, Luley re-grouped Rainwater with new bandmates Drew and Amy Fitchette, Stephen Steen, and James Kasinger and began to take stock of his new surroundings and new life. points and moments of transition, from the human to the astrological.

But now more than ever, Rainwater just sounds like themselves. Though they confidently cover a wide range of approaches, their sound is unified by a pensive mood and open, expressive lyrical focus, more interested in acceptance than angst. Saturn Return is both intimate and expansive, deeply personal yet welcoming, even bewitching, like gazing up at the stars completely alone. an album about maturing and growing up, and Rainwater have done just that."
