Once in a great while a band will come along that is able to take you on a sonic journey that is at once exhilarating and melancholic all at once, a journey of sounds and sights, tearing at the heavens, just out of reach.

It's hard to discuss The Boxer Rebellion without drawing comparisons, merely as a point of reference to the (regrettably) far too few to have discovered this incredible four-piece out of the London music scene.

When I first heard TBR, all I could think was, I have heard this before, and it was all too familiar, yet so new and refreshing at the same time. Combining so many sounds, from the acoustic melancholy of The Church, the anthemic soaring sounds of early U2, the bombastic bravado of early Oasis, with a bit of "Filter" lite industrial riff thrown in, well, what's not to like?

"Exits" is the first full-length studio album by TBR, and even though TBR had found some success in the UK, due to stellar tracks like the throwaway rocker "Code Red", or club favorite "Watermelon", "Exits" stands as an intriguing journey from beginning to end, with the band building a wall of sound so enormous, any musicians of lesser talent would have the walls tumbling down around them.

While not perfect by any means, it has come as close as anything I have stumbled on in recent years.

The album opens with "Flight" and "All You Do Is Talk", two tracks that bleed into one another, filled with a menacing riff, and more menacing lyrics. A clarion call to "Stand and Fight" if you will.....the band is in top form from the first distorted feedback on "Flight".....

Things slow down on "We Have This Place Surrounded", my favorite track on the album.

I am in London and just found this disc. WHAT A SOUND! I would call it "Coldplay with an edge and meaning." It is fresh, hard, melodic, driving. For those of you wanting to be on the cutting edge of new music, I highly recommend this CD.

Coldplay is dead, and the Boxer Rebellion killed it.

Combining the bombast of early Oasis, the shimmering guitars of Six by Seven and Swervdriver and an American predilection for noise, the Boxer Rebellion live up to their name on this album by being punchy (forgive the pun) and peeling away from the fey sound of the British Isles (Coldplay, Travis, Belle and Sebastian, Embrace).

"Flight" and "All You Do is Talk" layer guitars, bass and electronics on top of each other until the songs threaten to topple over completely. That they don't is a tremendous credit to the band. "Flight"s guitars wash onto shore and build a wall of shimmering sound, but the leaping bass is the key. "All You Do is Talk" takes the same formula and adds a little bit of shambolic jangle to come up with an instant classic. "The New Heavy" sounds *exactly* like something Six by Seven might do, but I'm not complaining. The band slows down for a moment on "We Have This Place Surrounded," showing a calmer, more atmospheric side that suits it well.

To be sure there are moments of Coldplay-like emoting here ("Lay Me Down," "The Absentee") but the band never dips into the woe-is-me-alone begging that Coldplay has fallen in love with. "Lay Me Down" and "The Absentee" both stretch over the course of five minutes and each builds steadily into a cathartic apex.

Boxer Rebellion main man and U.S. ex-pat Nathan Nicholson should be praised for fleeing the States and taking America's music ethos across the pond to the stale British scene.

Is EXITS merely the name of the album or the band's statement of purpose? Is it just a title or are the quartet heading to the airport and boarding a plane for a US scene that will embrace it? Who knows, but this album will give you something great to listen to while the band decides.

OK, the other three existing reviewers do a great job of detailing the sounds, nuances, influences and affect The Boxer Rebellion will have on listeners. I got an iTunes free download of a TBR song from their Union album. I loved it, then headed to Amazon to listen to more. The more I heard, the more I liked. So, what else could I do but buy both of their albums...

IMHO, their second album "Union" has more polish and refinement than Exits. If you liked U2 when they were new, Oasis, Echo and the Bunnymen, or any other really good alternative band, you'll probably like The Boxer Rebellion. There are a lot of different sounds here, hard, edgy, even down-tempo but all cuts that feel right at home on any alternative music channel.

Give Exits a try, and if you like this album, their follow-up Union is every bit as good.

Wow. I'm really glad I heard Union first and became a fan because I'm not so sure I would have if I had heard Exits first. There are some good songs on here, don't get me wrong, but overall, a majority of the songs just aren't good. "All You Do Is Talk" and "The New Heavy" are probably my least favorite songs by the Boxer Rebellion period. Just sounds like yelling and noise. The only redeeming qualities are Nathan's voice on this record and the songs "We Have This Place Surrounded," "World Without End," "Lay Me Down," and "The Absentee." And how "JFKFC" didn't make it on the album is downright criminal. Overall, I'm still a huge TBR fan and this is just added to my collection, however, it's my least favorite TBR album by far.
