After Edmund- previously known as "TAKEN", may or may not be a band you know...but if you don't know them, you really should!
This album is fantastic- it is a fusion of switchfoot meets third-day meets coldplay meets a hearty taste of indie pop rock- the album is sheer brilliance- perfectly crafted songs- everyone is classic, everyone is different, and every song has the ability to be a HUGE HIT! Each track is electrifying, haunting, and even at times, hugly emotional.
But beyond this, behind the songs, the noise, the glamour...After Edmund just might change your life- for the better- deeply lyrical, deeply thoughtful, truthful and honest, this album is a journey through the boys lives to men, and there are some great stories to be told- the highlights of this album are the fantastic "THANK GOD", "HELLO", "CLOUDS" and the one that stands alone to me is "EVERYONE".
Beyond just words, this album lyrically waxes like a painting, straight into your heart and head.
The band, who have recently changed their line up (moving from a 5 piece to a 4 as original drummer seems to have gone) are still going strong, huge in America, and their native Georgia- and rightfully so- they have worked hard and their craftsmanship shows in this album and all future realese since.
If you are ready to discover something new, something you haven't QUITE heard before, something honest- this album is for you!
If you are big into the Christian scene and like Swtichfoot, Third-Day, DCTalk and others fused into one- this album is for you.
Life-changing, and not a dud track on this album- you can feel the emoition and excitment of each and every track on this fantastic C.D. that you will want to listen to over and over again as it digs its way into your heart, mind and soul.
Tired of the normal bland massed produced music industry you hear today? fancy a change?
Say "Hello, hello" to this album- it might just be the best thing you've done for your Music Collection in years.
Support original music. Keep your eyes and ears open for this band, as I know you're going to hear big things from them sooner rather than later!
After Edmund- the only way to go from here is onwards and upwards, even as far as living above the clouds...
