Abandon II EP [edit]
by Abandon | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: April 21, 2009
 

Last year, Abandon landed a deal with Forefront and released their five-song Abandon EP. Now they are releasing another Abandon EP. Simultaneously, they are releasing Abandon II, which features six brand new tracks.

If you have already heard last year's Abandon EP, then you will want to check out Abandon II, since it contains new material. The EP starts off with "Song For the Broken," a mildly upbeat alternative rock track about a desire to influence the world for good. This song bears similarities to "Providence," the opener on the Abandon EP. Next is "Your Love Lifts Me Up," which is catchy. "City Lights" is probably the strongest track, with a simple chorus and lyrics addressing apathy in a relationship with Christ.

The second half of Abandon II "Gold" is a melancholy song about hopelessness and a need for God. "If I Could Write A Song" is a very heartfelt song about the singer's desire to bring hope to a depressed world, with an honesty that definitely resonates. The final track, "Hero," is a simple song about the life of Christ. These three tracks are all nicely done.

Abandon II is a different side to Abandon than what we heard on the Abandon EP. These guys can clearly do both upbeat, radio-friendly songs and slow, honest reflections.

Good | Posted May 06, 2011
A great EP for the time it was released, however all but 2 of the songs (Gold & If I Could Write a Song) are on their later released "Searchlights" album. Out of these two songs I don't have yet, I thought "Gold" was the best. I will most likely purchase the extra songs as MP3's online since I have the others already.
