Manchester Orchestra - HOPE

Searching for the sonic direction of what would become their fourth full-length album, the hard-hitting COPE, earlier this year; Manchester Orchestra discovered something pretty amazing. The unapologetically heavy anthems seemed to work just as well (or even better) when stripped to their essence. “We were noticing that all the beautiful, slow stuff was ...

Editorial Reviews

2009 release. In the two years since the release of their 2007 debut, Manchester Orchestra have played over 300 shows and made fans across the globe. They have toured in support of Kings of Leon, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Brand New, Say Anything and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. They have performed at festivals around the world including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Reading / Leeds (UK) and Laneway (Australia). While the debut was an attention-getting shot across the bow, Mean Everything To Nothing, produced by Joe Chicarelli (My Morning Jacket, The Raconteurs, The Shins), presents a substantial leap forward in sonic textures and song craft.

Customer Reviews

It's a very well mixed album with a nice flow.
T. Paslay
Feels like a singer in a high school talent contest trying real hard, but can't quite get there.
Still, I recommend checking out MO and I look forward to seeing how they grow in the future.

Ok, for starters, for anybody who loves Manchester Orchestra's first album I'm Like a Virgin Losing a Child, this album might initally come as a shock because it has an entirely different tone and production. It has a much heavier edge to it and the sound has more of a polish to it. These aren't bad qualities by any means, but the sound is noticeably different.

That being said, the same qualities that made the previous album impossible to stop listening to all the way through, over and over, are all here again. This has to be the freshest band I've heard in what seems like a decade. The songwriting is superior to anything that's been offered up in ages. Andy Hull's voice, and the palbable unity of the way this band plays together creates songs that can bring you to tears in one instance while at the same time hitting you squarely in the solar plexus with riffs that tighten your flesh and invite the adrenaline to course through your veins.

The most noticeable quality is the beauty contained within every finely crafted song. In a world that grows increasingly more vacant daily, these guys have once again produced nothing short of musical integrity. Cheers Manchester Orchestra! Absolute brilliance!

I have a wide range of music I listen to and love, and over the past two years or so I have developed an unhealthy obsession with Brand New's "The Devil & God Are Raging Inside Me." I listen to everything from Enya to the Mars Volta, but that album simply entails most everything I love in music. Deeper lyrics revolving more around a narrative style, soft/loud dynamics executed beautifully, melodies that sound so raw and real, it's hard to believe it's music after awhile. The reason I mention this album is because of my initial hesitance to get into Manchester Orchestra.

My friend always swore to me they reminded him of Brand New, so I gave them a chance, albeit a half hearted chance, and wasn't impressed. Long story short, I got into them, and into them heavily eventually. Both of MO's albums are amazing pieces of art and they do evoke several different emotions while listening. Yes there are hints of Brand New, but also darker Death Cab, Bright Eyes, Neutral Milk Hotel, and a formula all their own. The album plays out as 11 separate different pieces entirely, which may be annoying for the untrained ear. Manchester does not just rest on one sound as each song could certainly be made by a different band. "The Only One" sounds like Kings Of Leon should have sounded on their early albums, while "Pride" sounds like Conor Oberst fronting Black Sabbath in its first half, with an apocalyptic rock out that would make Local H proud. The melodies on this and their first album give me the same warming sensation I receive upon listening to my favorite albums ever (i.e. "Devil & God"). The band has some small quirks to work out, but who really doesn't?

Format: Audio CD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The fact that this is a rock band and not an orchestra, and is from Atlanta, GA and not Manchester, UK, does not influence my feelings on the music. Let's not forget the Bay City Rollers were not from Michigan, they were Scottish. Hmmm.

In "Mean Everything To Nothing", Manchester Orchestra evokes the thrill of "alternative" revealing its secrets (and rendering its moniker useless) to the mainstream ca 1991-1993, as though seminal Smashing Pumpkins and Nirvana records from those days were implanted in their DNA.

Silversun Pickups, while playing in the same ballpark as Manchester Orchestra, has probably done a better job thus far at starting to carve its own identity out of this template. Manchester Orchestra, despite leader Andy Hull's burgeoning gift for melodic hookiness, still lurks under the long shadows of their genre/influences...

With a little emo-screamo here ("Shake It Out", "The River"), maybe a little Jane's Addiction there ("I've Got Friends"), a thick slab of Black Sabbath here ("Pride", and they should send Tommy Iommi a check), Nirvana there ("In My Teeth"), Bright Eyes flare-ups here and there, Manchester Orchestra still might have a ways to go to implant themselves in someone else's DNA, but they're sure making a joyfully tortured noise as they try to crack the code. A particularly fabulous part, for me, was the outro of "Everything to Nothing", an unexpected circus waltz trailing out of the body of the song as though viewing it from above, in a dream.

3-1/2 stars.

Being almost 50 I'm not the intended audience I'd venture to guess, but I was intriqued by the name of this group I was unfamiliar with. I think since they were called Manchester Orchestra I conjured up visions of an Oasis type straight ahead rock band with, perhaps, a more diverse sound. Except for the diversity what I got couldn't be further from the what I imagined.

Based on what I have distilled from several listening sessions there is no Oasis in MO's sound, but plenty of other 90's influences with Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins being two of the most obvious. Obviously if you were to pick good 90's music those two bands were some of the better ones.

This album grows on you. It's angry aplenty with lots of grinding guitar to underscroe that, but like Nirvana it has moments of quite introspection sometimes side by side in the same song. It is programmed well to where it seems the first 10 songs are to be taken in a single sitting if possible, with the last two being, to my way of thinking, like bonus tracks that really don't add much yet they certainly don't take away anything. The loud dynamic swings and heavy guitar work well with the urgency of the vocals to draw the listener in. I think this band could really develop to be more impressive overtime and this is a very respectable showing which leaves the listener invested in hoping just that.
