The Glass passenger is the second album by American alternative rockers Jack’s Mannequin. It captures frontman Andrew McMahon during a darker period, after he was diagnosed with leukaemia. Some painful subjects are woven into the pop-rock and orchestral sounds. McMahon’s piano play is placed besides other instruments, and you feel the synergy between him and his bandmates. Even without knowing his backstories you’ll feel related to the music and lyricism. From the slow-burning “Spinning” to the razor sharp single “Swim”, it’s a versatile and colourful album.
