Album Review

Heavily indebted to the likes of Relient K and all the other Christian pop-punk acts that came before, the Wedding's debut album doesn't bring much new to the genre. Its primary flaw is that the young bandmembers have not yet synthesized their influences, so the album ping-pongs back and forth between the more melodic side of pop-punk and a far more aggressive brand of post-hardcore emo, without sounding entirely comfortable on either end of the spectrum. The most effective songs on The Wedding are those that split the difference, such as the anthemic, harmony-driven "Move This City" and the spiky but tuneful "Morning Air." On either extreme, grinding, shouty emo like "Song for the Broken" and blatantly mainstream pop like "Price for Love," which sounds like the devotional power ballad the Wedding trot out to please the parents who have driven their kids to their gigs, don't really sound like they belong on the same album with each other.

Customer Reviews

Totally Unexpected!

When I bought this CD, I wasn't expecting anything great, just a pretty good CD, worth about 3 stars. When I first started listening to it, I'll admit, I didn't like it very much. But now that I have listened to the songs more, I found that I REALLY like them. Morning Air, Joyride, and 479 HXC, are great. The one thing is, they mention the phrase "morning air" a lot. Sort of weird, but the CD is really good. The CD has good songs all the way to the end.

Not a bad effort.

This is what I love about ITunes. Without their "Just for You" service, I would've never heard of The Wedding. And I have to say, I'm impressed. These guys are a really good pop-punk group with a good sound. As the CD blasts through the first five tracks, I really was pleased. A good solid sound with pretty decent lyrics. But when the set slows down with "Price for Love", I began to get bored. Don't get me wrong, it's a great song. They just need to cut about a minute off of it to keep my attention. The set then kicks back into overdrive for the next couple tracks. "Joyride" is personally one of my favorite tracks on the CD, just because the lyrics hit me deep. Then the set slows down once again in "But a Breath". This song is a great ballad that doesn't drag on. The final two songs are both great closers. "Water Under the Bridge" wins points for its great use of piano and guitar right before the vocals kick in. "Song for the Broken" is a great anthem of encouragement. Overall, a great set of tracks with some really good moments. My ONLY problem was that it seemed to drag on in "Price of Love". Other than that, I highly recommend this CD to anyone who likes some good, encouraging pop-punk fun.

Not your typical christian group.

As soon as you hear the opening lyrics of "Morning Air", the first track on The Wedding's self-title debut, you realize that The Wedding isn't your typical christian rock group. Take switchfoot. Subtract the whiney, political side. Mix in some Reliend K-like energy. Then, have My Chemical Romance do the CD. Thats what you get. Who knew that you could have emo christian music? Who cares? The CD is incredibly well put together and executed. Put all of this together, and it's a shame more people haven't heard about The Wedding. How about we go and change that.
