iTunes Review

With the thundering opening riff of "Top Notch," Manchester Orchestra signal the heavy, guitar-driven direction of Cope. A flurry of cymbal crashes, pinch harmonics, palm mutes, and throaty roars quickly follow, filling each song with unprecedented urgency and force. While distorted hooks and explosive drums take center stage on the quintet’s fourth album, frontman Andy Hull overlays it all with ample vulnerability, brought to life through his signature blend of earnest lyrics and painstakingly perfected harmonies.

The relentless guitar onslaught and solemn lyrics stitch together like a minotaur, both unapologetically fierce and human.

Based in Atlanta, Georgia, the indie rock outfit grew out of songs that Hull had begun writing while attending high school. Encouraged by positive response, he opted for home schooling during his senior year, which afforded him enough time to compose and record in the studio. Friends began collaborating with...
