Every songs is different, fresh and very well structured.

As I listened to the rest of the CD I realized not all of the songs were that uptempo, but regardless they are all great songs!

Abandon's sound has been described as The Killers meet Coldplay which is a great description. I would also compare them to The All-American Rejects, Maroon 5, Mute Math and Christian rock bands The Almost, Falling Up and After Edmund. They have a steady rush of uncommon creativity that has both modern flash and worshipful depth. Brothers Josh and Justin Engler had moved from their home state of Indiana to Texas while in high school, where they met Dave and Stevan Vela, cousins, at church. Gelling by jamming in the worship band, they felt a growing desire to write original music together as well. In the two years since Abandon's Forefront Records debut Searchlights, the San Antonio-based band scored a Dove nomination, throngs of critical acclaim and tours. Amongst all the activity, the modern rockers crafted its sophomore album Control, which finds the five-some taking the next natural evolutionary musical step, while also turning inward for their greatest lyrical depth to date and writing two songs for the album with Aaron Gillespie from Underoath and The Almost.

I have loved this band since the original EP released in 2008 and can't get enough of their sound musically, especially stand-out songs "Providence," "Hold On" and "Be Alive In Me." If you liked those songs, then you'll absolutely want to pick up this album immediately which picks up literally where it left off with hit song "Hero,"and includes a new recording of that song and is jam packed with energy from the other twelve new original songs. First single "Feel It In Your Heart" is already one of my top songs of the year and has quickly jumped up the charts with the super-catchy dance-flavored rock beat, similar to "Misery" by Maroon 5, but with an uplifting message.

Abandon is one of those bands that raise the bar every time they put new music out. From the catchy beats to the uplifting lyrics, this album has got it all. Every songs is different, fresh and very well structured. It's easy to tell that Abandon put a lot of thought and effort into this album, since the whole record flows smoothly and cohesively in my opinion. It's just one of those records that you want to listen to when you're having a bad day, the songs will put a smile on your face, will keep you singing along and will help you fix your eyes on the author and finisher of our faith: Jesus Christ. My favorite songs are: "Feel it in your heart", "Live it out", "Hero" & "Under fire".

For fans of: Coldplay, The Killers, House of Heroes, Incubus.

Since Forefront Records introduced the world to Abandon with the release of their 2008 self-titled EP, there hasn't been much doubt about the band's talent and ability to write and perform great songs. Another EP was released in 2009, and later that year the band's debut album Searchlights was released. Searchlights was slightly disappointing because it recycled 9 of its 12 tracks from the two EPs, but now in 2011 Abandon has released a full length album featuring 12 brand new songs entitled Control. It is truly a joy to hear a full set of new songs from the band, especially considering the creative direction they have taken with their sound and the refreshing reminders provided by the rock solid lyrics.

After hearing just a few seconds of the album opener, "Feel It In Your Heart," Abandon fans can't help but notice a significant change of musical direction for the band. Abandon's sound has often been compared to The Killers, but with Control, they have proven that they are capable of getting out of their normal musical element while still sounding completely comfortable with their sound. Control still feels like Abandon in every way, but they also make their way into an interesting style that sounds like rock, pop, and dance... all at once. It's simply fantastic, to say the least, and it makes almost every song extremely entertaining without sacrificing an ounce of creativity or depth.

The album's opening trio of songs, "Feel It In Your Heart," "Help," and "Live It Out" start the album off with some of the most obvious dance influences and also some of the most fun and catchy moments on the record. "S.O.S." and "Push It Away," both of which were co-written with Aaron Gillespie, successfully deliver the album's harder, head-banging tracks, while "Why Does It Take So Long?

I'm a 45+ mom of teens who sort of stumbled onto this band serendipitously. We fell in love with Anthem Lights after hearing Cant Shut Up on the radio and ordering their CD. Then we learned that Anthem Lights would be playing a few hours away next month with a band called Abandon, so I decided we should know who they are as well and ordered both their CD's. Am so glad I did.
I had a hard time putting my finger on who they reminded me of, but since I'm over 45 my references were U2 (especially Song For The Broken), a hint of The Cure and Cheap Trick (especially Hold On). I love the vocals. My 14 year old thinks they sound Hot Chelle Rae and my 17 year old loves the song S.O.S. while my husband loves the song Hero. I love them all and am surprised I had never heard of them before. Cannot wait to see them in concert next month!

I just realized I was mentioning songs from their Searchlights CD, but both their CD's are fabulous. For 2 weeks I have listened to nothing else.
