iTunes Editors’ Notes

It’s inevitable that the single “Sweet and Low” from Augustana’s sophomore album will be compared to the hit “Boston,” from their 2005 major label debut, but this time around the band is more piano-led than piano-inspired, and the songwriting feels more considered, more carefully crafted. Those who like the grand keyboards and dramatic flourishes common to the genre will love “Hey Now” and the darker “Dust,” which builds to a powerful finish. True ballads like the lovely “Fire” and “Twenty Years” are fine examples of a young band finding their hearts on their sleeves, but keeping the emo-stylings at bay and sounding original and fresh. The perkier tempos and chunkier guitars of “Either Way” and “Meet You There” both have a Tom Petty-ish energy, and “I’m Still Not Over You” is a close contender with “I’ll Stay” for the second most radio-ready track in the collection. Overall, Augustana seem to be honing their mainstream rock voice to a sharper edge, while also figuring out what sorts of textures work to make an entire album really engaging and worth listening to all the way through. The pretty acoustic versions of “Sweet and Low” and “Hey Now” (here in video format) are well worth having as bonuses.

Customer Reviews

i have been waiting for this!

this album is amazing. i love augustana and they just keep getting better and better. you should download the song "fire" even if you don't want the entire cd because it's one of their best songs, in my opinion. and if you ever get the chance to see them live, you should take it because they are one of the best live bands i've ever seen play.

Excellent

Better than their 1st album. Highly recommended. If you only want a couple of tracks, "Dust" and "Sweet and Low" are espcially good, but the entire album is well worth the money.

Support Augustana ! Must Have CD

ahhh This CD is a must have their songs are very soft and soothing for the most part, except for a couple but still have the same effect. Must have songs.. haha its so hard to pick one so a couple might be "Hey Now" "Twenty Years" "Dust" and "Fire" I believe Fire is probably the best song overall. I look foward to seeing their concert this year! I saw them last year and they perfomed some of their new songs. Fire is such a good song to hear live. If you love this CD definatley make your self go to the concert you will not regret it at all they sound literally the same if not better live! I saw them opening for Dashboard Confessional, and ever since them I have not stopped listening to them. Buy this CD Support Augustana!

Biography

Formed: 2002 in Greenville, IL

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Augustana's music is the heartland equivalent of Coldplay and Keane, with a touch of mid-'90s adult alternative throwback (think Counting Crows or the Wallflowers) also peppering the band's rootsy, piano-based rock. Although based in California, the group formed in southern Illinois in 2002, while singer/keyboardist Dan Layus and guitarist Josiah Rosen were studying contemporary Christian music at Greenville College. The band's original lineup also included bassist Simeon Lohrmann, second keyboardist...
