Lesser Men [edit]
by Abel | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: October 19, 2010
 

Lesser Men, Abel’s debut full-length is a dynamic step up from their previous EP effort. Baring the same heart and soul, Abel dives into more complex areas of faith and musicianship. “The album is about how we often lose focus on the things that are truly lasting and important in this life,” singer/writer, Kevin Kneifel explains. “It’s about discovering that forgiveness is real, and that no matter how far away from God we wander, he always takes us back.”

Lesser Men | Posted November 03, 2010
A year after the release of their debut EP, indie rock outfit Abel brings fans their first full-length album, Lesser Men. According to vocalist Kevin Kneifel, “the album is about how we often lose focus on the things that are truly lasting and important in this life.”

There’s a certain musical freedom about Lesser Men. Instead of letting song structures define the direction of vocals and instruments, Abel allows the vocals and instruments to carry the songs, giving the album a rawness and authenticity that many albums lack.

Lyrically, Lesser Men is pretty straightforward; yet, clever metaphors are found on “Titanic” and “The Martyr.” One of my favorite lines on the album, though simple, is strikingly powerful, “There’s no greater love/There’s no greater call/than when You said, ‘Come, follow me.’” (“The Martyr”).

Lesser Men is one of those rare albums that offers the best of both worlds, great music and uplifting, honest lyrics. This is indie rock at its best.
