iTunes Review

Manchester Orchestra’s second release, Mean Everything to Nothing, features explosive and earnest songs that use classic loud/soft dynamics and dramatic tempo shifts to create a driving intensity that rarely lets up. The first half of the album is particularly aggressive and loud, with sharp guitar riffs and waves of keyboards punctuated by bursts of angst, as if the band needed to spew some vitriol just to properly warm up. The emotional urgency of the vocals and the heavy, often bitter lyrics that fill these coming-of-age songs work because the band knows just when to release the tension, like following up the grungy, melodramatic “Pride” with the taut, Nirvana-inspired “In My Teeth.” They also know how to write a mean hook. The album shows their range especially in anthems like “I’ve Got Friends,” the raw “100 Dollars,” and full-blown throat-shredding power ballads like “I Can Feel a Hot One,” “My Friend Marcus,” and the title cut. Mean Everything to Nothing rocks out with such urgency and devotion that you have to admire the band’s ambition and sincerity and their commitment to good old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll therapy.

Best Band to Use Music as Physical Empowerment.

I remember first seeing Manchester Orchestra two years ago as they opened for Brand New at the Warfield in San Francisco. Having never heard them before, I was shocked and awed as song after song they rose me to tears with their inspiring musicianship and bold lyrics. I immediately bought Like a Virgin Losing a Child the next day, and haven't stopped listening to it since. After saying that, I believe it is an understatement to say how ecstatic I was in anticipation for their newest album. I bought it yesterday, and have been listening to it since. I find myself still eating up every word of every song, still feeling every beat of the drum, and still overjoyed with emotion while listening to their music. It is the second album I was hoping for by them, and my expectation was high. I must say, though, like any second album for a band or musician on the rise, the production value on the second album rose, which is not always for the better. The first album was very simply mixed so that the recordings almost felt like a perfect live performance, and that the music spoke just as much as the frontman. This album seems to be mixed much more, with vocals being toyed with to be louder, or lower, than the original vocalist's, and the drums being overdubbed and pumped up as well. I liked the organicism that the first album had over this one, but I cannot deny it the five stars it deserves, for the musicianship and the love that I feel coming from this band is more than anything that a producer can take away.

Biography

Years Active: '00s, '10s

As led by singer/songwriter/guitarist Andy Hull, the maturity of Manchester Orchestra's songwriting belied the fact that the bandmembers were barely legal when their group sprung into existence. 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...
