Album Review

Future rock historians may point to the early 2000s as the point at which hardcore died — not because of the creeping influence of emo or the hegemony of major record labels, but because that's when hardcore bands decided that pretentious literary references and arty song titles were cool. Hence the band name Anterrabae, for example. In the proto-chick-lit novel I Never Promised You a Rose Garden, Anterrabae was the name of a god forever falling to earth in a shower of fire — at several different levels, an irresistible name for a hardcore band that aspires to depth. Hence also the faux-sophisticated album title And Our Heart Beat in Our Fingertips, Without Reason, and song titles like "I Lifted Her Dress over Her Head and Unscrewed Her Leg" and "My Wrists Are Rivers, My Fingers Are Words." Musically, this stuff is actually lots of fun: there are plenty of unusual and challenging song patterns (note the 5/4 intro and subsequent structured chaos of "The Filthy Habits of Ex.Lovers") and the subtle complexity churning beneath the surface noise on both "Pink & Tender" and "Stay Moist." The instrumental bits offer some of the most powerful moments on the album, but the tag-team screaming (and, hey, singing!) on "I Lifted Her Dress and Unscrewed Her Leg" is also very effective. Good stuff, and it would be even better without the crust of whoa-dude pseudo-philosophy on top.

Good Follow

As second cds go, many bands don't do to well. Anterabbae is not one of those bands. Thier 2nd cd is, acutally, probably better then thier first. On thier first cd they established thier own sound, that was very different from many other bands, and on this cd they develop it even more. The general sound of this cd is Anterabbae on thier first cd, with a little southern influenced metal (the chariot, norma jean, etc) added in. Deffinintly worth the 10 dollars.


What does an elephant have to do with heartbeats? and isnt it supposed to be "and our heart BEATS in our fingertips for no reason"? that aside, this band is good, but they sound like everyone else if u ask me.


just buy it this is the most amazing thing ive ever heard. easily the best cd of 2006 and buy their first album too!
