Falling Up are a Christian Alternative rock quartet and their fourth studio album "Fangs!" is like nothing else on the Christian music scene, a linchpin on the scene. Sounding in part like stuff by REM, Radiohead, or even Prog Rock duo The Mars Volta, theirs is a very experimental, atmospheric sound.

The album apparently revolves about a concept, it is an account and summary of chapters 1-5 from the book "Fangs!" adapted from the original screenplay "Neptuenn's Cavern" by lead vocalist Jessy Ribordy. Here is an excerpt of the story: In a land not unlike our own, a city witnessed a strange occurrence- the cloth that the children slept in was weaved in poison golden thread. If the thread had touched the children's skin for much longer, they would be sure to fall into a deep sleep and never wake up. The city spared no time as they hoped to rid of the threads as soon as possible. In their plans, they tied up the threads in a large shoot and attached one thousand arrows on strings to the end of the shoot. Then, with a thousand of their strongest archers, they shot the poison threads up, up, up towards the nearest planet Neptuenn.

A thousand years later...

Screams in the night- The city wakes to find their poor innocent children stuck deep with sharp golden arrows. All of the children lay silently with great arrows sticking out of their bodies. The people assume there must have been poison on the tips of the arrows and in the cities most desperate attempt to find those responsible for this atrocity, they sent out their most ambitious traveler and drifter to search the land. He is an adventurer, he is the hero.

Being relatively new to Falling Up and pretty much stumbling upon this album I find it very interesting and very good. Now, finding out my son listens to them, but really only likes their first release 'Crashings' I can see where I would definitely like 'Fangs' where my son wouldn't. This is an excellent album musically. If you want the same album from any group time after time, then what's the point? One of the things I look for in a group is if they try to change it up from album to album. Falling Up seems to want to do just that. Don't get caught up in the fact that it's based off a screenplay dealing with mythology. Who can't say that they didn't study Greek mythology in school? And while one reviewer claims that "I think it is also important to realize Falling Up doesn't seem to worship God or even mention his word throughout the album, a huge disappointment from a Christian rock band!". My question to that reviewer is "Can't an album just have clean lyrics and great music that Christians can listen to"? Hey - there's a ton of ways to worship God last time I looked. So, because they don't mention God this time around you're ready to throw them and their faith under the bus. What a shame that there's such a narrow point of view on what Christian music should be like. I listen to a lot of bands, mostly secular, and that's one of the biggest drawbacks with the Christian music genre - in a box with no way out. The best music out there is from bands who think out of the box and evolve their sound. I love progressive music so this is probably why I love this album. It reminds me of Ashes Divide, Lunatic Soul, The Pineapple Thief, and Fair to Midland in their approach, but also many others in their willingness to take a chance.Read more ›

Falling Up returns with their 4th full length album, "Fangs", a mystical concept record telling a story of hope. Years in the works, Falling Up has brought to life a lush musical journey that began as story penned by lead singer Jessy Ribordy. Heros & villains, good and evil, trials and tribulation. "The story of our hero begins as he crash lands into a great sea on this mystic planet called Neptuenn. We follow along on his quest as he embarks to discover the history of the planet, and just like anytime one travels to a distant land, he is shocked to notice just how strange the place that he comes from really is." This album, along with the introduction, is an account and summary of chapters 1-5 from the book "Fangs!" adapted from the original screenplay "Neptuenn's Cavern" by Jessy Ribordy.

This is unlike any Christian release I've ever heard and it is a truly brilliant musical journey. I've enjoyed previous hit songs by Falling Up including "Flights", "Contact", "Exit Calypsan" and "Hotel Aquarium". If you liked those songs, you won't be disappointed with the stand-out songs on "Fangs" which for me are the first 3 songs "The Colour Eoptian", "Lotus And The Langourous" and "Streams Of Woe At Acheron". Those 3 songs set the stage for the concept of the album, which is unique and fictional. The music and Jessy's singing voice blend perfectly with the synth-rock sound of Falling Up, musically more like the "Exit Lights" remix album. I've already listened to the song "Lotus And The Langourous" over a dozen times, and it is my favorite new rock song of the year. There is nothing offensive in the song lyrics although they are obscure.
