A fusion of songs both solemn and full of zip describes Jason Vigil's Heart Gone Sober. The first track has that established pop feel to it with guitar work and lines like, "In my head again/and now mostly yeah, it's you I've been thinkin' of." The second track has peppy guitar play, but fretful lyrics such as, "I know it's gone too far, our heart is now a scar. My head is so unclear, in this time you're everywhere." The third track has piano work and lyrics about Vigil's transformation and how another views it, with lyrics like, "Lookin' into me, a different sight you see, you don't mind it, you seem to like it." The fourth track has more guitar work and gets back to a more efficacious message, with lyrics like, "It's alright, alright. Just don't look down, you're alright, alright so trust me now." The fifth track is about Vigil's lover bidding him farewell, with lyrics like, "Sweet goodbye, she says to me as I look her in the eyes and try to breathe. All I wanted was from you she tells me was for you to try for me." Heart Gone Sober, by Jason Vigil, has songs that will strengthen you, and songs that enter the artist's heart and the secrets kept there.
