Searchlights: A Rockin Debut
Posted August 27, 2009
Searchlights, the full length debut for Abandon, gets off to a Rocking Start with the "title" cut, Hold On, a song I think I must have heard a million times on secular radio, because when I thought I heard it the first time on the preview I thought, "I've heard this song before, but where?" The spiritually themed songs may put the band into the Modern Worship circle of Leeland but, unlike the former, Abandon contains a mix of Rock (Hold On, Providence) and Mellow (Here we are now, Atmosphere) that make for good listening. For me nothing kills an albums enjoyment than monotony, and Searchlights passes that bar.
All in all a very good debut. I think you will not be quick to Abandon this CD easily and they should have a good long stay in the searchlights.
