Great album by a top-notch band. Glad to see the trend of great bands (P86, TFK, Showbread) taking back their music and doing it on their terms.

Some of my personal favorites on this album(in no particular order):

Fall, Galiath, Fall
SOTS
New Transmission
Take the Hill
The Crossfire Gambit
Wait for the Siren
Ghosts of Easter Rising

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.

It's hard to really sum up how much this band has really done over the years. So many shows, so many fans, over 16 years of being a band, and 7 prior studio albums ... something has been building and is reaching a boiling point.

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.

Let me start off by saying I'm a Project 86 fan. Every CD I've grabbed from them is diverse, heart-pounding, loud (in a good way), fun and thought provoking. Andrew Schwab is a master with the pen and he doesn't seem to mind breaking with the rules of music writing (Example: "Songs to Burn Your Bridges By") if it means getting his message out.

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.

Promising something different from the very first song we are started off with a simple military drum that is soon accompanied by the clean clear sounds of a hammered dulcimer. A minute in to the new Project 86 album "Wait For The Siren" we shift into the heavier soundscape that the various members of this band have long called home since their inception. Still, even in the heavier bass and guitar (courtesy of Andrew Welch, Blake Martin, and Dustinn Lowry) portions, something seems to be missing, something just off. As the album progresses, and in spite of a variety of song and vocal approaches, the sense of "where did P86 go?" increases. (Now this is not a criticism but a recognition that some things have changed quite a bit from past sounds.) Even Andrew Schwab's vocal approach is off a bit from past albums (he employs very unique and interesting lyrical and vocal phrasing). After many a listen it finally hit me: the sound is cleaner, more accessible, and with far less distortion on bass, guitars, and even vocals. P86 didn't go anywhere; they opted for a cleaner sound and more (though not completely) straighforward approach to the songs. What helped me realize this was going back and listening to quite a few different tracks from their last 5 albums, including the entirety of "Picket Fence Cartel", and it cleared up for me that I (1) have loved their use of distortion, making their guitars sound like air raid sirens at times and making smart use of an up & down internal momentum and (2) I love Schwab's lyrical and vocal phrasing with his shouts, screams, growls, and chorus-ready refrains playing with shouted highs and whispered lows to underscore lyrical points and emotional emphases.Read more ›
