Album Review

This Beautiful Republic's sophomore record may have been the victim of its own high expectations. Their signing with Forefront Records raised more than few eyebrows, and for the most part their debut album came close enough to expectations to keep the band from being labeled as a loss. Perceptions isn't far away musically; it just isn't a lot to talk about. Fans seemed poised for something timeless, something that would knock the Christian world off its feet. While frontman Ben Olin and company didn't exactly deliver to that end, it can still be said that they crafted another solid record that many also-rans would give their right arm for. The riffs are still loud yet controlled, and the vocals do justice to the attempts of looking at life through new eyes. Although barely a year had elapsed since their debut, the band's emo-influenced banter had begun to sound a little tiring. "Beautifully Broken" and "My God" are highlights.

Customer Reviews

These guys are so amazing!

So sad that no one really knows who they are. Their lyrics and unique sound really stands out among the rest!


I really like TBR sound. it's too bad they're not a band anymore. This album is their best. my fav songs: No truning back, last second chance, surrender saved my life and beautifully broken. TBR needs to be heard.

Great Album

I was introduced to this album by a friend, and I can honestly say its one of my favorite albums of all time. I haven’t heard their other albums, maybe a few other songs, but thats it. This album is seriously awesome.
I’m a big fan of the slight screaming in songs (Think The Wedding’s first album). The main singers voice is beautiful. It sounds great doing softer songs, and it sounds awesome when doing louder songs. I love all the songs, and this is a great buy.
The lyrics are deep and personal, and as a Christian very relatable. We have even sung “For The Life Of Me” in Church before. Christianity is very evident in their songs, but they stay away from the over used religious words, like Jesus, God and so forth.
This album is great lyrically, vocally, and musically. One of my favorite albums that I can always go back to when I want to jam out, or connect with God.
