Editorial Reviews

London-based alt-rock quartet The Boxer Rebellion are set to release their third studio album on CD this March 29th. Created in conjunction with legendary producer Ethan Johns (Kings of Leon, Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne), The Cold Still is an exercise in master class performances and dark, sophisticated songwriting from a band that
embodies the very definition of 'independent.'
The Cold Still is the follow-up to the band's widely acclaimed album Union, which caught the world's attention as the first self-released LP in history to break into the Billboard 100 Album Charts on digital sales alone.

There is a striking sense of maturity to the sound of The Boxer Rebellion in their third studio album, The Cold Still. While their previous album, Union, was indeed a masterpiece, The Cold Still itself stands apart in structure and atmosphere, relying on a feeling of wide open space to construct unforgettable songs. Simplicity layered with sonic sweetness, here the band truly outshines their contemporaries, building upon the solid reputation they have earned not only in the UK music scene, but to the shores of the US and beyond.

The first track on the album, "No Harm" is a piece of musical melancholy wrapped in pleading desperation that builds to a crescendo. It is indeed a very telling track that sets the theme. "Step Out of the Car" is the most upbeat and immediately accessible track, reflecting in many ways "Evacuate" from Union. Here the band is immersed fully in the unique and layered guitar driven rock sound they have mastered so well. "Locked in the Basement", "Cause for Alarm" and "Caught by the Light" follow with the three very good tracks each gradually changing in mood from quirky with the former, to morose with the latter.

"Organ Song" is one of the best tracks on the album, tinged with hope and reflection, this acoustic driven song is a true classic. "Memo" seems a bit out of place, a catchy, admittedly good rocker that recalls TBR's first album "Exits". Following is "Both Sides are Even", a song that pulls you in with sheer, genuine, emotion. Lush and spacious while dark at the same time, there is a weight, burden to this track that is hard to explain in so many words, another classic. The album closes with the more upbeat "The Runner" and reflective "Doubt".

There aren't many albums out there these days that sound like albums- yes there are great collections of songs, or, more commonly, 3 or 4 'hits' in amongst filler, but this is an album- a journey of excellent songwriting that leads you to a different place. Quality.

If not for "Grey's Anatomy," there is a lot of lovely music I never would have discovered. The haunting, absolutely exquisite, definitely majestic "Both Sides Are Even" was featured on the medical drama's last official soundtrack and it captivated me like no other song has in the past few years. When I saw The Cold Still was just 5.49 here on Amazon, I had to buy it.

When music is really good, it's sincere and speaks to the heart. That's certainly the case here, especially on songs such as "Caught By The Light" and "Organ Song." There is a beauty to The Boxer Rebellion that is downright breathtaking ("Both Sides Are Even" would unnerve the strongest of hearts) and an earnestness that is quite touching. I am so glad Amazon offers great prices on albums "new" to many people. In this case, I would have paid much more...that's how wonderful this album is!:)

I must admit I was late getting into this band, but having bought all 3 albums this is by far their most mature record to date. On listening it feels like this comes from a more natural place, showing that they've grown a lot since Union. This more than anything, is a journey of discovery with every listen!

Not my favorite album by The Boxer Rebellion but it grew on me over time. Had I reviewed this album back when it came out, I might have given it three stars, but it has become what I like to call a time-release capsule of an album. As opposed to EXITS and UNION, The COLD STILL is much more melancholic than the first two albums and I can see how many might be turned off by it upon the first listen. "No Harm" is indeed an odd choice for an opening track, as its a very somber down-tempo song. "Step out of the Car" kicks it up a bit, but it lacks the atmospheric tone that many of their previous openings possessed. This is not a criticism by any means, because I actually love both songs. The entire album is terrific, but it's a slow burner compared to the first two albums. Stick with it, and I'm sure you'll love it!

This is one of those pleasant surprises - I just purchased this album today. I've never written an album review, but I'm an avid alternative/indie music fan. It's always a crapshoot if you're not real familiar with a band, and you listen to a 15 second clip to try to figure out if it's worth purchasing. I've acquired quite the selection of mediocre-at-best albums, but this isn't one of them. It's not "rock out with your ..." you know the rest, but it's beautiful. Yeah, beautiful. Like someone else mentioned, it's probably not for the masses, just because it doesn't try to sound like something else and doesn't fit a formula. It's creative, interesting, and I'll be enjoying it for a long time....

This is a very enjoyable album, though it may be a bit simple for some. Sort of a cross between Chris Issac and Big Country, with more toned down guitar part's and simple lyrics. I got this album because of a song featured in an episode of NCIS (Caught by the light) and found the rest of the album to be very good as well. I wouldn't even begin to know where to find this in a music store though, I had never heard of The Boxer Rebellion before, in much the same way I had no heard of Cinephile before hearing a track in an episode of CSI many years back, and some music from TV shows can be very hard to identify, but this was worth finding.
