Artist Of The Week - Anchor & Braille

It's been about three years since we've gotten an album from Anchor & Braille, the indie side project of Anberlin's Stephen Christian, but this week, on July 31st, the band's sophomore album will be released. The Quiet Life is a collection of haunting melodies and catchy percussion, certainly a maturation of sound since 2009's Felt. The Quiet Life is available now in stores and online through Tooth & Nail Records.

Hearts of Saints

Artist: Hearts of Saints
Album: Hearts of Saints
Release Date: 1/26/10
Label: Revolution Arts/Provident

Hearts of Saints are a four-piece pop/rock band out of Hopkinsville, Kentucky. I would describe their style as more high-energy styled pop/rock. The lyrical themes include and reflect a good relationship with God, as well as the importance of believing in Him.

Well most of the tracks are high energy and upbeat, I find beauty in the album's softer song, a worship tune titled "Recapture Me". It is one of the better worship songs a band has pulled off nowadays, and pleas "Set my heart on fire, oh God". Luckily, this is also the band's current radio single, so listen for it on the radio soon. The other highlight on the album is titled "Over & Over", a great upbeat rocker about the importance of having a relationship with God.

Something that really disappointed me on this album was the song "Monster". In the past year, so many artists have had songs titled "Monster" and now it's just starting to feel like a trend. But the album does still have its high points, but has a bit to work on.

Rating: 6/10 Hearts of Saints brings us an album full of upbeat, high energy pop/rock tunes. They do have a bit to work on, but show great effort. Check out "Recapture Me", "Over & Over" and "Hello Grace".

  1. FYI.... I am a fan of Hearts of Saints and they have been playing their song "Monster" for almost 4 years. They most definently weren't copying Skillet or anyone else... Because they are new to the music scene, I can see where most folks outside of the SE Region might think the HOS guys were trying to piggyback. For those of us who have followed them all the way from their Special D days, we know that just isn't true... I do like and agree with most of you review...

  2. Yeah, I didn't mean that the song was horrible or anything, just that the name "Monster" seems to be used a lot in song titles nowadays. They are a great band, with great guys! Thanks for reading and supporting CRR!
