Editorial Reviews

2009 release. In the two years since the release of their 2007 debut, Manchester Orchestra have played over 300 shows and made fans across the globe. They have toured in support of Kings of Leon, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Brand New, Say Anything and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. They have performed at festivals around the world including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Reading / Leeds (UK) and Laneway (Australia). While the debut was an attention-getting shot across the bow, Mean Everything To Nothing, produced by Joe Chicarelli (My Morning Jacket, The Raconteurs, The Shins), presents a substantial leap forward in sonic textures and song craft.

Ok, for starters, for anybody who loves Manchester Orchestra's first album I'm Like a Virgin Losing a Child, this album might initally come as a shock because it has an entirely different tone and production. It has a much heavier edge to it and the sound has more of a polish to it. These aren't bad qualities by any means, but the sound is noticeably different.

That being said, the same qualities that made the previous album impossible to stop listening to all the way through, over and over, are all here again. This has to be the freshest band I've heard in what seems like a decade. The songwriting is superior to anything that's been offered up in ages. Andy Hull's voice, and the palbable unity of the way this band plays together creates songs that can bring you to tears in one instance while at the same time hitting you squarely in the solar plexus with riffs that tighten your flesh and invite the adrenaline to course through your veins.

The most noticeable quality is the beauty contained within every finely crafted song. In a world that grows increasingly more vacant daily, these guys have once again produced nothing short of musical integrity. Cheers Manchester Orchestra! Absolute brilliance!

I have a wide range of music I listen to and love, and over the past two years or so I have developed an unhealthy obsession with Brand New's "The Devil & God Are Raging Inside Me." I listen to everything from Enya to the Mars Volta, but that album simply entails most everything I love in music. Deeper lyrics revolving more around a narrative style, soft/loud dynamics executed beautifully, melodies that sound so raw and real, it's hard to believe it's music after awhile. The reason I mention this album is because of my initial hesitance to get into Manchester Orchestra.

My friend always swore to me they reminded him of Brand New, so I gave them a chance, albeit a half hearted chance, and wasn't impressed. Long story short, I got into them, and into them heavily eventually. Both of MO's albums are amazing pieces of art and they do evoke several different emotions while listening. Yes there are hints of Brand New, but also darker Death Cab, Bright Eyes, Neutral Milk Hotel, and a formula all their own. The album plays out as 11 separate different pieces entirely, which may be annoying for the untrained ear. Manchester does not just rest on one sound as each song could certainly be made by a different band. "The Only One" sounds like Kings Of Leon should have sounded on their early albums, while "Pride" sounds like Conor Oberst fronting Black Sabbath in its first half, with an apocalyptic rock out that would make Local H proud. The melodies on this and their first album give me the same warming sensation I receive upon listening to my favorite albums ever (i.e. "Devil & God"). The band has some small quirks to work out, but who really doesn't?

I picked up this album off of a friend's recommendation and boy am I glad I did! Sometimes I feel like rock n' roll is hard to do anymore. Sometimes I get this sick feeling in my gut that it's already been done you know? A lot of times rock bands or rock albums that should really hit home-runs just leave you with an empty taste in your mouth (from all that hairspray) and a sick feeling inside as you go back to your old Beatles records.. (i'm looking at you Kings Of Leon) But every now and again, a band comes out with a real rock album that is true to the spirit of rock, that has that grit you need, that puts that dirt on your shoes, that grabs you by the collar and beats the snot out of you and then buys you a drink afterwords. Mean Everything To Nothing is that kind of record. This is the first album I've heard by Manchester Orchestra, and I am extremely impressed by the energy being put out by them. The energy and intensity can be partially attributed to the fact that they recorded the album live (another throw-back technique of rock music of the past). I love the lead singer's voice and this album has a very distinct feel to it.

Picking a stand out track is tough for me. There are a couple tracks that aren't home runs, but there aren't any bad songs on here. My favorites this specific moment are The Only One and I Can Feel A Hot One

The best Manchester cd. Its been on continuous in my car since I got it. Songs stick in your head, but in a good way. I highly recommend this as a first choice in a growing Manchester collection :)

The fact that this is a rock band and not an orchestra, and is from Atlanta, GA and not Manchester, UK, does not influence my feelings on the music. Let's not forget the Bay City Rollers were not from Michigan, they were Scottish. Hmmm.

In "Mean Everything To Nothing", Manchester Orchestra evokes the thrill of "alternative" revealing its secrets (and rendering its moniker useless) to the mainstream ca 1991-1993, as though seminal Smashing Pumpkins and Nirvana records from those days were implanted in their DNA.

Silversun Pickups, while playing in the same ballpark as Manchester Orchestra, has probably done a better job thus far at starting to carve its own identity out of this template. Manchester Orchestra, despite leader Andy Hull's burgeoning gift for melodic hookiness, still lurks under the long shadows of their genre/influences...

With a little emo-screamo here ("Shake It Out", "The River"), maybe a little Jane's Addiction there ("I've Got Friends"), a thick slab of Black Sabbath here ("Pride", and they should send Tommy Iommi a check), Nirvana there ("In My Teeth"), Bright Eyes flare-ups here and there, Manchester Orchestra still might have a ways to go to implant themselves in someone else's DNA, but they're sure making a joyfully tortured noise as they try to crack the code. A particularly fabulous part, for me, was the outro of "Everything to Nothing", an unexpected circus waltz trailing out of the body of the song as though viewing it from above, in a dream.

3-1/2 stars.
