4.5/5

Adam Baldwin’s second solo EP, No Rest for the Wicked, is a catchy and energetic rock release that takes the listener on a journey through Baldwin’s fight with drug addiction.

Each song beautifully captures emotion, from the guilt-ridden “Shattered” to the hopeful “Dark Beside the Dawn,” all while maintaining the lively overall tone of the EP.

While the music continues to capture the audience’s attention, the lyrics capture the true battle with addiction. Baldwin—who is from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and has been performing for over 15 years solo and in Matt Mays’ band—gives his addiction a persona, which is especially heard through the lyrics and the music in “Salvation.” 

Baldwin chooses to end his story with the title track, where he recognizes that the battle is never truly over.
