Vessels [edit]
by Ivoryline | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: July 27, 2010
 

Produced by Aaron Sprinkle (Anberlin, The Almost), Vessels showcases a more mature and diverse Ivoryline than was heard on their previous record. "We just started writing," says vocalist Jeremy Gray. "We didn't really have a plan or agenda for the record. We just wrote what was on our hearts and hashed out the songs together. We had ample time to get the songs just the way we wanted and had a blast writing and recording the record. It really was one of the most exciting, joy-filled times of my life."

Joined by guitarist Dusty Kittle, bassist Robert Woodward and drummer Wesley Hart, Gray and Ivoryline began taking the band's sound to a new level and meaning.

4/5 | Posted November 13, 2010
Ivoryline's sophomore effort is very well done. The band has matured greatly in the space between There Came A Lion and this album. Most of the songs lyrically are very spiritually driven, much so then their previous album. Don't mistake this to mean that the band has slowed down their music because they haven't. They have instead chosen to go in a more spiritual direction with their lyrics and still maintain their fun sounds. The one big complaint I have is that the second half of the album, while still very good, lags behind the amazing first half. And also the track placing for the final 2 songs ("Naked" and "You Bring Fire,") is not really that good. I would have made "Made From Dust" be the absolute final track on the album, but this is only a minor nitpick and does not take away from the music. Aside from a few hiccups, Ivoryline's second outing is just as enjoyable as their first. Fans should eagerly pick this up.

One amazing album. | Posted August 12, 2010
There Came A Lion didn't leave my CD player for months after I purchased it, in other words, It was an amazing album. I wasn't sure that Vessels could live up to the amazingness (is that a word?) of There Came A Lion, but Ivoryline definitely avoided the "sophomore slump". When I first listened to Vessels, I liked it, but i didn't love it. I expected something completely different, and it almost felt like it was lacking something their previous release had. After a few listens, I started to change my mind. In fact I realized it had so much more. Addicting, catchy choruses and vocals, amazing guitar riffs, even throwing in a bit of synth here and there. But the biggest thing Ivoryline improved on was their lyrics (not saying There Came A Lion's lyrics were bad). There is a sense of maturity in them that wasn't there before. And this time around, their lyrics are a lot more faith based and religious. Definitely a huge leap forward for Ivoryline and a candidate for the album of the year!
