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.

The Good Album

Artist: All Star United
Album: The Good Album
Release Date: January 12, 2010 (U.S. Retail)
Label: E1 Entertainment

Returning with their high energy styled pop rock, All Star United is back. With their new album titled The Good Album, you would hold high expectations for it, hoping that it is indeed good. Well, one thing can be said right away, it's not just good, it's great!

With the opener "Surface of the Sun", we already begin to see ASU's high energy style shining through. The piano-driven "The Blame" is essentially God speaking to us, saying that He doesn't choose sides and the He'll take the blame for us and our sins. "Lights Out" showcases more of a pop/punk sound to it, with Ian Eskelin's vocals soaring during the chorus. The acoustic tinged "Once Again, With Feeling" contains a powerful chorus of "I believe in love, I believe in You, I believe that You and I will find some healing".

The album's highlight, the sarcastically titled "Dude... That's Freaking Awesome!" showcases Eskelin's precise vocals and witty songwriting. One of my favorites on the album, "Beautiful Way", which is the closer, with a resounding chorus of "What a beautiful way, what a beautiful way, You have about You". It ends the album on a high note.

Rating: 7/10 All Star United present us with their latest effort, The Good Album. Full of many fun, as well as meaningful songs, it does not disappoint. It not just good, it's great!
