A Dream Too Late
Intermission To The Moon
Tooth And Nail Records
www.adreamtoolate.com


One of the newest additions to my favorite label Tooth & Nail is a band by the name of A Dream Too Late. They're one of the few on the label (that's been called a Christian label from the beginning), who actually pronounces themselves as a Christian band. With that label naturally comes some obstacles. But with their melodic, uplifting music, they're bounding over the obstacles one-by-one.

If I were to compare them to a fellow label mate, I suppose I would place them with The Fold or Mae. There is definitely a pop presence felt throughout the entire album. From the first song "14th And Knott" you have your ears filled with electric synthesizers and harmonizing vocals, taking you on an almost majestic journey. "City Park" is really the only song that I feel truly has any rock aspect. The rhythm is strong, the drums come out more pronounced and the vocals are a little more harsh and low. "Daylight" is possibly my favorite song; and purely because I like the darker tone that this song gives off. The drums are fairly simplistic as are the lyrics. But the guitar, this is its song to shine. The ending is very creepy and at the same time very cool.

This is one group that is not afraid to speak their beliefs. Their belief in God is loud and proud and everywhere in their lyrics. Perhaps they feel that they can be more open because they're on Tooth & Nail. Or perhaps they wouldn't care which label they were on, they'd speak their mind either way. As for right now, this is some good music. A tad too poppy for me at times, however there are a few needles in the haystack that are worth finding.
