There is a reason why all of their albums have 4+ star reviews on Amazon. If you are a fan of their previous efforts, then pick this up yesterday.
The result of that constant striving driving effort of relentlessly pouring their hearts into their music, passionately writing lyrics which speak of morality, society, and justice, while calling for listeners to stand for their beliefs, face their issues head on, and not be ashamed of what they hold true.
This album is another stepping stone in the ever growing story that is Project 86.
Their first album 'Self Titled' was raw and energy filled, full of promise in a scene of stagnating music. 'Drawing Black Lines' redefined what Christians playing Hard Rock / Metal meant. It was powerful, refined, and face-melting.
'Truthless Heroes' showed another side of Project 86, by beginning the story of 'TH', a man who faced hard times and turned to society for relief. All of the songs were of his journey, and were beautiful, powerful, emotional and gripping. But still ultimately were fully Project 86, rocking hard and evoking emotional and intellectual response with thought provoking lyrics and messages. This was the first and last record under the Atlantic record label, which held much promise but brought much disappointment and frustration ... seen in:
'Songs to Burn Your Bridges By' This album was the return to indie, self sold, and self produced. This album was written, mixed and produced in about 3 weeks. Oh how it was glorious. So raw, so energy filled, so Project 86.Read more ›
That said, "Wait for the Siren" is a bit of a mixed bag and thus I have mixed feelings about it. For those not aware, Project 86 kind-of-sort-of-but-not-officially/really broke up. Their drummer left after/during the recording of "Rival Factions" on good terms with the band. Then (I'm not sure as to when, exactly) his Bass player and Guitarist left after the "Picket Fence Cartel". Basically Andrew Schwab and the P 86 I know had come to an end. But Andrew Schwab didn't seem quite ready to retire. Instead he reformed Project 86 with a new crew and went back to work. Being out of a record label (Which sort of stunned me, despite this not being the first time for them) forced Andrew and the new Project 86 to reach out through the web-thing-a-ma-jig, Kickstarter, for help with paying the cost of a new CD. Thus "Wait for the Siren" came to audiences. Ok, that's the recent history. So how'd the new Project 86 do?
"Wait for the Siren" is simultaneously a step forward and a step backward. Is it loud? Yes. Fun? At times. Heart-pounding? Mostly. Thought-Provoking? Yes. Diverse? No. "Wait for the Siren" has the Project 86 passion, some of their style revealed in from Rival Faction, and some of their old sound. It's a pretty solid 13 tracks. There's guest singers on a couple songs. So what's up with my mediocre rating?
Andrew Schwab takes full advantage of being unrestrained by the studio to produce radio-friendly lyrics.Read more ›

The lyrics are too poetic to understand amd immediately appreciate, the vocals are grating, and the notes seem reused throughout the album.Published 16 months ago by Jericho
Every song on this CD was my favorite. Especially like them incorporating Brian Head Welch in one of the songs. Really like where they have gone with their sound.Published on April 26, 2014 by John Wilbur
