Quiet Life CD

A sense of joy and gratitude resonates through The Quiet Life.  The album's billowing melodies and bright, fine-tooled arrangements reflect a British pop influence, with echoes of everyone from The Beatles to Simply Red and Orange Juice.  Stephen Christian (best known as lead singer of the faith-based rock combo Amberlin) shows off his high tenor vocals throughout the tracks, effortlessly soaring to falsetto heights at peak emotional moments.  Producers Kevin Dailey and Micah Tawlks combine art-rock elegance with solid rhythmic punch, bound by wraparound curtains of background vocals.  The opening track, Goes Without Saying, rides a sparkling piano line that takes Christian into blue-eyed soul territory, setting the listener up for the polished electronica of Knew Then Know Now and the propulsive power pop of Find Me.  Hymn for Her and Before I Start Dreaming are heartfelt and delicate, contrasting with the abrasive edge introduced in Kodachrome and In with the New.  Lyrically, Christian projects a life-affirming outlook, letting the sweet longing of his music fill the spaces between his words. - iTunes
