Product Description

Product Description

EMBRACE This New Day (2006 UK 10-track CD album - their 5th album & the follow-up to 2004s double-platinum selling Out Of Nothing and is a self-assured record with the sound of a revitalized band bursting with renewed confidence and includes the single Natures Law picture sleeve)

Amazon.co.uk

This New Day, the fifth album from Embrace, comes hot on the heels of Out Of Nothing, the Chris Martin-approved 2005 album that saw these aspirant Yorkshire indie stalwarts return to the upper echelons of the UK charts. This time, they aren’t taking any chances: gone are the days when the McNamara Brothers might pull out something as unusual as a kazoo, as they did on their 1999 hit "Hooligan". Rather, the likes of "Celebrate" and "You Will Hit The Target Every Time" ploughs a mainstream furrow not dissimilar to Keane, rousing mid-paced rockers that fanfare their emotional content loud and clear. That it works is down to the fact that Embrace do broad-stroke optimism very well: "Sick of trying," broadcasts Danny McNamara on the clarion-like "No Use Trying", "But you know your day is gonna come". Importantly, too, his vocals--a long-time Achilles Heel--have dramatically improved, hitting the high notes with seeming effortlessness. "I Can’t Come Down" is the stand-out ballad, a tearful piano-and-strings epic in the vein of The Verve or Oasis that blurs the line between love and drugged-out euphoria, but as a whole, This New Day shouldn’t disappoint fans or newcomers after an anthemic rock fix. --Louis Pattison

This New Day is probably not their best album, (I'd reserve that accolade for the Good Will Out or Out Of Nothing), but it's by far and away their most mature album to date.
Their lyrical abilities seemed to have improved a lot on this album (which I first noticed on Out Of Nothing), but that is not to say their earlier work was lyrically poor either. They just sound more grown up now. The same can be said of the production, which seems to be spot on. The whole record sounds very polished and slick. The group seem to be moving into a more experimental, more exciting phase of their career that first began with Out Of Nothing, which I think heralded a new direction for their music. It's easy to tell by listening to the album that this band are beginning to reap the rewards of years of playing together as a tight unit.
Another less obvious aspect of this album that I love, is the art and photography direction. Both Richard Bull and Rick Guest need to be commended for the amazing tone/style of the photography that they have created for the album. The use of flairs in the dark is stunning.
So, in essence, I would highly recommend this album, but in my opinion it's not the band's best body of work, but comes very close to the heights they scaled with their debut record.

Bands normally mellow out by the time they reach their fifth record. Not Embrace. Four years ago they were screwed - dropped, hopeless and on the dole after they followed up a popular, accessible but unadventurous rock debut with an album of shizeclectic, funky and experimental indie pop and then followed that up with a low-key mood album high on atmospherics and subdued paranoia but low on energy and memorable tunes. They got caught in record company machinations and a changing musical climate, and they hit the ground hard. People assumed they'd split.

The struggle and success of Out Of Nothing has shocked them back to life though. They said they'd never be able to make another record in the same way, Danny and Richard writing songs alone in a room for 10 hours a day, selling their possessions on eBay in order to live while Mike, Mickey and Steve took up day jobs. So they haven't. The last two tracks on Out Of Nothing were written by the band as a unit, jamming together with Youth "conducting" them until they had a song. A handful of b-sides from the Out Of Nothing singles further extended this approach, and it's how 8 out of ten of the songs on This New Day were brought to life. Most bands start out writing collaboratively and drift away from it as a dominant voice emerges, or as individual voices start pulling in different directions - think The Stone Roses, The Verve, The Beatles, Pavement, Talking Heads, Pink Floyd, Ride, Outkast - and this generally spells the beginning of the end as egos compete and the band falls apart. Embrace have moved in the opposite direction, and it's both galvanised and reinvigorated them.

As an Embrace fan right back to the start and their first album The Good Will Out, its refreshing to see Embrace release another album full of quality Embrace music. If you listen back album by album you can see that as each album is released, their music in effect becomes more fluid, and I believe even This New Day is an improvement on the superb Out Of Nothing.
Whether your an Embrace fan young or old, they have released another smashing album with their very own style of soft ballads, to some hard rocking style crackers.
A couple of songs that are so-so, but I'd say 8 out of the 10 are excellent which deserves 5 stars.
Target, I can't come down, Celebrate & the single Nature's Law are the best of the bunch. Waiting for the official England football song now! Keep it up, and roll on the concert at Halifax I'm off to.

This New Day takes what started some 18 months ago for Embrace and pushes it further than they imagined. It starts with a flash and a bang and runs from there to the finish line with barely a pause for breath. Working with Youth and writing as a unit has allowed the glimmers of creativity they have shown throughout their career to blossom to a spectacular peak. Melodies shine as they always did but now there's a variety and vibrance to the supporting cast, breakneck rhythms, psychedelic lashes of guitar, huge swells of piano and whiplash bass lines, the band galvanised by the trials and errors of the last decade together until they shine like they only hinted at before. There's a depth of sound and feeling here that they always knew they had but could never tap properly. They've tapped it now.
The euphoric, driven, anthemic pop songs that we've come to expect sit side-by-side with grooving rockers, bitter testimonials and beatifically forlorn ballads: No Use Crying is a rush like Ashes and then some; Target has that uncanny ability to induce palpitations within the first bar; Sainted is a hard-nosed disco classic; I Can't Come Down is the type of tune that will be used for the first dance at countless weddings in years to come. And that's just side A - on the second side of This New Day, Embrace get really interesting.
Who knows what the future holds. Two years ago people would have laughed if you'd told them what Embrace would achieve between then and now, and that includes the band themselves. But right now we have This New Day. It looks like a good one.
