Editorial Reviews

Anchor & Braille was formed as a side project for Stephen Christian, who found success as frontman of internationally-acclaimed act Anberlin.
Anberlin has sold over 900,000 records to date and continues to make waves in the alternative music world with tours on multiple
continents. Anchor & Braille s first effort Felt, produced by Copeland s Aaron Marsh, was released in 2009 on Wood/Water Records. The
Quiet Life finds Anchor & Braille exploring a more diverse sonic terrain as Christian teamed up with the producers Micah Tawlks and Kevin
Daley (Civil Twilight) and mixer Chad Howat (Paper Route). The Quiet Life will be available on Tooth & Nail Records.

Anchor and Braille or Anberlin, it doesn't matter, this guy and his musical brain can do no wrong. I've loved Anberlin since I heard "Paperthin Hymn" on the radio back in '05. I appreciate everything this guy puts out. I definitely recommend his music to Everyone!

I didn't think they would be able to make an album better than their incredible 'Felt.' Well, they did. This album exceeded all my expectations. It's more upbeat than 'Felt' and closer to Anberlin's sound, but they also have a few really good slow songs, especially the amazing 'Hymn For Her.'

If you like Anberlin, Stephen's voice, or 'Felt', this is a no-brainer.

Stephen Christian has one of the most amazing voices I have ever heard! I am not sure if I like this album as much as the first yet. I feel track 4 & 6 don't really fit very well with the rest of the album but the rest of it is so amazing it doesn't really matter! So besides that, I am definitely in love!

This album is wonderful. As a previously unexposed Anberlin fan, I decided to take a listen to this album shortly after its release. After listening to "And it Goes without Saying" I bought the album. I am now an Anchor and Braille fan. This does not disappoint, even after (trust me) multiple listens.

It was quick, and was in superb condition. I got it quicker than I expected. Will come back if they have the CDs I'm looking for.

The only reason I checked this out was because of Anberlin singer Stephen Christian’s involvement. The gentler music, often obviously inorganic with lots of drum programming and bright keyboard beeps and boops, is lightly infectious melodic pop. It doesn’t overwhelm by any stretch of the imagination and because of this it took me a few listens to really dig in and enjoy it. Not a bad song on the disc but nothing quite on par with any of Anberlin’s best (hard or soft) songs either. Easy to listen to but also mostly forgettable; the songs linger little. Favorite songs: the lilting “Knew Then Know Now”; the loving call of “If Not Now When”; the infectious lite rocker “Kodachrome”; and the smoke filled blues lounge slow burner “Everybody Here Wants You”. 3.75 stars.
