Haunting . . .

Haunting . . . in a good way.


Great music. Sounds both darker and (I think) better than their earlier projects. Great call going with Bad Christian guys.

Don't Expect "Heaven Come My Way" Or "Close Your Eyes" On Here

If you are like me, you were anxiously expecting to hear another "Ad Astra Per Aspera" flawless album with super cathcy guitar lead lines, powerfully sung melodies, and just an overall solid indie rock-sounding album that you can listen to from beginning to end that is just as fun as riding a smooth rollercoaster. But instead you get "Alligator."

"Alligator" can be best descirbed as Abandon Kansas's "different" album. Don't get me wrong. It's not a terrible album. I can actually get sucked into listening to this album quite well, but in a different kind of way (than what I would have expected). With some, or most, of the members of Abandon Kansas not actually making this album, I already kinda knew this album was going to be different.

If I had to describe this album on one word word it would be "sad." Sad in the sense you will have your emotions flipped up, down and around with each song you listen to. Song's like "Anniversary" and "What You Meant" are so heartfelt it will make you identify with Jeremy Spring to his core.

But if you are searching for that "classic" Abandon Kansas indie rock feel, the closest songs you will find on this album are "Baby Please," "Shadows," and "One Foot in the Grave" (and possibly "You Oughta Know"). This album may not be what I personally wanted, but I know for sure this is what the artist wanted. It's honest, raw, and emotional.

Thank you Abandon Kansas for this album. I thought I was gonna hear "Turn It To Gold" radio-ready tunes, but instead I heard something unique and deeper than I would have expected.

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Based out of Wichita, Kansas, Christian alt-rockers Abandon Kansas (a play on the phrase "a band in Kansas") released their eponymous debut EP independently in 2005. The ensuing years saw the group, which featured the core lineup of Jeremy Spring, Brian Scheideman, and Nick Patrick, honing their chops regionally and independently issuing two more EPs (Exactly What We Needed, Minutes) and a well-received full-length (You Build a Wall, I'll Build a Ladder) before inking a deal with tobyMac's Gotee...
