It says something that I bought this album on only a brief hearing of the band's new single 'Wonder'. Drawn From Memory is simply one of the most complete music albums you could ever wish to buy - from ballads such as 'I Wouldn't Wanna Happen to You' and the title track 'Drawn From Memory' through to the anthematic 'You're not Alone' and the rock/soul tunes 'Save Me' and 'New Adam and Eve' the album captivated me.
This album is a terrific buy and I certainly look forward to Embrace's next release.

After hearing the first two singles from this album, and there very, very impressive debut, this was a must buy.THIS ALBUM IS BRILLIANT. Here is my review of all the tracks:
1.THE LOVE IT TAKES is a surprisingly good opening track. Starts off a bit slow but when it gets going it is great.Excellent.8/10
2.YOU'RE NOT ALONE is a classic and should have been a much bigger hit. The lyrics are really meaningful. Joint best on album. 10/10
3.SAVE ME didn't impress me at all at first but after listening to it properly i realised that it is a top tune.8/10
4.DRAWN FROM MEMORY is a beautiful ballad and has great lyrics and a lovely tune. Second best.10/10
5.BUNKER SONG surprised me a little as it wasn't very long. A lot of people think that this was a waste of time but I love it's rock guitar sound. Maybe it would have been better as an intro track.9/10
6.NEW ADAM NEW EVE is the only real heavy rock track on the record. It is the only one that resembles anything like 'I Want The World', 'You've Got To Say Yes' and 'Last Gas' and they were all exellent tracks. It's a shame it's the only one of its kind on the album.9/10
7.HOOLIGAN is really different and new. It's pretty cool.9/10
8.YEAH YOU is a great track with a really good chorus.8/10
9.LIARS TEARS is a bit depressing and sounds a bit like a b-side. Good all the same.8/10
10.I WOULDN'T WANNA HAPPEN TO YOU is joint best on the album. From the intro all the way through to the final chord, it is excellent.10/10
11.I HAD A TIME is a really emotional final track and is another great Embrace ballad.9/10
Overall, not quite as good as The Good Will Out but more original. WELL DONE EMBRACE!

The first album led to accusations of arrogance and insults about Danny McNamaras voice, and perhaps the over the top promotion of 'The Good Will Out' was inevitebly going to cause problems. So what next? Give up, go home and lie low. No chance. Back Embarce come with an album that actually merits self-praise. 'Drawn From Memory' was largely ignored by most and only made it to No8 in the UK album charts, however the subtle mix of upbeat tracks and the traditional slow ones means that those who did miss out, certainly shouldn't have. When 'Hooligan' was released as the first single, you had to wonder if Embrace had moved away from the slow ballads, but they're still there, trust me. 'The Love It Takes' is quite simply beautiful, whilst 'Liars Tears' and 'I Wouldn't Wanna Happen To You' could drive you to tears. On the other hand anyone who ever accused Embrace of producing depressing music can now eat their words. 'Save Me', 'Yeah You' and 'New Adam New Eve' provide the upbeat side of things. It would seem that this time, unlike the debut album, Danny sticks to what he does best - the slow songs - and Richard takes on the faster tracks. A recipe destined for success. If 'The Good Will Out' didn't do it for you - this one will - and if you liked the first effort - you'll still find enough on here to keep you going.

Commercially this album was the beginning of the end for Embrace - crashing in at number 8 in the UK charts after their number 1 debut album. But musically this album is absolutley fantastic. A little cheesy, yes and maybe a little bit too emotional for many but these seam like niggly complaints for an album that is so diverse and well written.

In particualr Save Me, You're Not Alone and Drawn from Memory are amazing and would have been number 1 singles if a higher profile band had released them. They're catchy, clever and brilliant lyrically.

There isnt a duff song on here and would count this as one of my most played albums of recent years. Really well worth buying.

Well, what can I say about this album.....erm......well I could say a lot actually, in fact I could say too much cos it's that damned good. The album starts off with the weird starting "The love it takes".....the first few times I listened to the album I skipped this track thinking it was a weird tuneathon, but surprisingly there's a bloody good song hiding behind it. The most surprising thing about lead vocalist Danny Mcnamara's voice is that he just sounds like he's giving it large in a karaoke bar, but it works so well with the songs he's singing. Next up is the excellent "You're not alone" which in my mind has one of the most memorable opening lines from any embrace track I've heard. "No, you're not alone.......cos everybodys out there on their own", simply brilliant, it sends tingles down my spine everytime I hear it, it's just one of those tracks you can relate to so much when you're having one of "those" days. Next up is the rather poppy "Save me" which in my eyes was a thrown in track, because it doesn't really gel with the rest of the album, although the lyrics are catchy it doesn't really make it a stand out track for me. Next we have my personal favourite "Drawn from memory", this song is so beautiful, from the opening woodwind/piano intro..which then fades into a melodic piano ruling masterpiece of sweet melody and thought provoking lyrics. next is "Bunker song" which again isn't really a stand out tune for me, but then again it has no lyrics...and when it comes to embrace tracks, lyrics and their music really do belong together. "New adam new eve" is the next track to satisfy the senses, and by god it does it well.Read more ›
