2nd Ep? Good Buy
Posted April 28, 2009
Last year, Abandon landed a deal with Forefront and released their five-song Abandon EP.
If you have already heard last year's Abandon EP, then you will want to check out Abandon II, since it contains the 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. Next is "Give Me Love," which is catchy. "City Lights" is probably the strongest track, with a simple chorus and lyrics addressing apathy in a relationship with Christ.
"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. Abandon II is definitely worth getting
