Product Description

Product Description

2009 release. In the two years since the release of their 2007 debut, Manchester Orchestra have played over 300 shows and made fans across the globe. They have toured in support of Kings of Leon, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Brand New, Say Anything and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. They have performed at festivals around the world including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Reading / Leeds (UK) and Laneway (Australia). While the debut was an attention-getting shot across the bow, Mean Everything To Nothing, produced by Joe Chicarelli (My Morning Jacket, The Raconteurs, The Shins), presents a substantial leap forward in sonic textures and song craft.

This album is everything you could ever want. No wonder this band is blowing peoples minds! This is their 2nd album but without a doubt their best to date. Every song is great not one weak track out of the bunch. they combine rock with alt with indie with folk and it equals one great mind blowing experience. if you don't have this album slap yourself in the face and then go buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!!! April 22 2009
By J. Robertson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ok, for starters, for anybody who loves Manchester Orchestra's first album I'm Like a Virgin Losing a Child, this album might initally come as a shock because it has an entirely different tone and production. It has a much heavier edge to it and the sound has more of a polish to it. These aren't bad qualities by any means, but the sound is noticeably different.

That being said, the same qualities that made the previous album impossible to stop listening to all the way through, over and over, are all here again. This has to be the freshest band I've heard in what seems like a decade. The songwriting is superior to anything that's been offered up in ages. Andy Hull's voice, and the palbable unity of the way this band plays together creates songs that can bring you to tears in one instance while at the same time hitting you squarely in the solar plexus with riffs that tighten your flesh and invite the adrenaline to course through your veins.

The most noticeable quality is the beauty contained within every finely crafted song. In a world that grows increasingly more vacant daily, these guys have once again produced nothing short of musical integrity. Cheers Manchester Orchestra! Absolute brilliance!

4.0 out of 5 stars Manchester Orchestra Delivers Oct. 15 2009
By Timothy Lovett - Published on Amazon.com

Either you like how they sound or not so I suggest you try the samples before you decided to buy.

You probably heard of them from their radio hit "I've Got Friends" but you'll be amazed to see how great their other songs are as well.

It's definitely worth at least one listen through once or twice and you'll find plenty of songs which will make your favorites list.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hookiness beneath alternative's long shadows... Sept. 9 2009
By Mister Charlie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
The fact that this is a rock band and not an orchestra, and is from Atlanta, GA and not Manchester, UK, does not influence my feelings on the music. Let's not forget the Bay City Rollers were not from Michigan, they were Scottish. Hmmm.

In "Mean Everything To Nothing", Manchester Orchestra evokes the thrill of "alternative" revealing its secrets (and rendering its moniker useless) to the mainstream ca 1991-1993, as though seminal Smashing Pumpkins and Nirvana records from those days were implanted in their DNA.

Silversun Pickups, while playing in the same ballpark as Manchester Orchestra, has probably done a better job thus far at starting to carve its own identity out of this template. Manchester Orchestra, despite leader Andy Hull's burgeoning gift for melodic hookiness, still lurks under the long shadows of their genre/influences...

With a little emo-screamo here ("Shake It Out", "The River"), maybe a little Jane's Addiction there ("I've Got Friends"), a thick slab of Black Sabbath here ("Pride", and they should send Tommy Iommi a check), Nirvana there ("In My Teeth"), Bright Eyes flare-ups here and there, Manchester Orchestra still might have a ways to go to implant themselves in someone else's DNA, but they're sure making a joyfully tortured noise as they try to crack the code. A particularly fabulous part, for me, was the outro of "Everything to Nothing", an unexpected circus waltz trailing out of the body of the song as though viewing it from above, in a dream.

3-1/2 stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Diverse Passionate Bittersweet Melancholy Music July 23 2009
By John Werner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
Being almost 50 I'm not the intended audience I'd venture to guess, but I was intriqued by the name of this group I was unfamiliar with. I think since they were called Manchester Orchestra I conjured up visions of an Oasis type straight ahead rock band with, perhaps, a more diverse sound. Except for the diversity what I got couldn't be further from the what I imagined.

Based on what I have distilled from several listening sessions there is no Oasis in MO's sound, but plenty of other 90's influences with Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins being two of the most obvious. Obviously if you were to pick good 90's music those two bands were some of the better ones.

This album grows on you. It's angry aplenty with lots of grinding guitar to underscroe that, but like Nirvana it has moments of quite introspection sometimes side by side in the same song. It is programmed well to where it seems the first 10 songs are to be taken in a single sitting if possible, with the last two being, to my way of thinking, like bonus tracks that really don't add much yet they certainly don't take away anything. The loud dynamic swings and heavy guitar work well with the urgency of the vocals to draw the listener in. I think this band could really develop to be more impressive overtime and this is a very respectable showing which leaves the listener invested in hoping just that.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little punky July 21 2009
By Kalera Stratton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
A little rougher and less melodic than I was expecting, but in a good way. This album is my introduction to Manchester Orchestra, and I was kind of anticipating more of the shoegazer pop that's "The Thing" in indie rock these days, but instead found something slightly crunchy with melodic undertones and a lead vocalist vaguely reminiscent of Kurt Cobain. I like it!
