Everything To Nothing – Manchester Orchestra

Band name to the contrary, Manchester Orchestra hail from Atlanta, Georgia. Also contrary to the large number of references to God and Jesus in the lyrics, this work in way more infused with the spirit of loud guitars and melodramatic vocals than quiet prayer and medative self-analysis.

Producer Joe Chicarrelli (The Raconteurs & My Morning Jacket) encouraged this young band to run wild and the end results easily transcend their first album I'm Like a Virgin Losing a Child. It’s not surprising to learn that band front man Andy Hull has a past that included time spent at a Christian high school because he seems quite liberated with the possibilities of a secular life style.

Also in line with the youthful throwing off of the shackles of a regimented mindset is an effervescent approach to the freedoms now on offer. The lyrics while delivered with great exuberance make little literal sense and leave the listener open to his own interpretation.

Great rock music comes from many different places and reacting to a dogma that makes little personal sense is as good a starting point as any. This is a work by a band finding its place in the real world and as a sign of progression is an outstanding step forward. Having said that it will also be interesting to listen to the band’s future output, as they become more a product of actions instead of one of reactions.
