Customer Reviews

If you like Coldplay...

These guys are like Coldplay's little brother. Chris Martin will write songs such as "Gravity", perform them live, and if he doesn't want them on his album..he'll toss them to Embrace. This cd is as good as "X&Y", no joke. The strongest songs on this cd would be, "Gravity", "Someday", "Keeping", "Spell It Out" and the title track. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

Worth The Wait

But of course, I didn't wait. I bought this album in December 2004 after hearing "Gravity" and "Ashes" on Virgin Radio UK. They have been called "Oasis' Little Brother," but comparisons to Coldplay are not unfounded. "Gravity" is of course written by Coldplay, but the other mostly anthemic songs are quite good. Since I tend to gravitate toward the one-off songs, and "Near Life" and "Out of Nothing" are probably my favorites. (My favorite Coldplay song is "Amsterdam".) Definitely a repeat-player.

Now Watch Me Rise Up and Leave

I was first introduced to Embrace by some one who compared them to Coldplay. Aside from being British and mellow, emotional music, there really isn't much in common musically aside from Gravity that takes off the signature Coldplay guitar crunch (and coincidently was co-written by Chris Martin). With the multiple layered music and danceable tracks, The Stone Roses might be a better comparison. On their latest album, Out of Nothing, Embrace shine whenever they go for the layered vocals/choral approach to songs such as Ashes and Someday. The added layers give a sense of grandeur that seem to be missing from today's pop landscape. The slower songs, such as the title track, do bring down the album a little bit as they don't pull these types of songs off like Coldplay. Luckily, most of these songs do change tempos to make the songs better.

Biography

Formed: 1990 in Bailiff Bridge, West Yorkshire, E

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Following in the footsteps of Oasis and the Verve, Embrace became a minor pop sensation in post-Brit-pop Britain in the late '90s. Like Oasis, the group has a knack for big, anthemic hooks, yet they turn these catchy numbers into sweeping, sprawling, lugubrious rockers, much like the Verve. This synthesis earned the group an equal number of critics and detractors, but they were able...
