Ignoring the fact both the CD case and signed cars were creased (top work to whoever was responsible for that), I am glad my pre-order turned up at last. Once again, another awesome album by one of my favourite bands. Get around it #Yellowcard #LiftASail #newmusic #autographs

POZ Review: Yellowcard - Lift A Sail

After more than a decade, the men behind Yellowcard are reinventing themselves. In “Illuminate,” Ryan Key sings: ”We hope to run from what’s been done/Look for a future no one else has sung.” This is a message that the band clearly took to heart. Lift A Sail is Yellowcard’s biggest album yet, a sweeping and illustrious rock album no one could have foreseen. And it’s safe to say that this one is a game changer.  

Opener “Convocation” prepares listeners for the journey they are about to embark on – its openness is as beautiful and bright as it is tender and stirring, and it is a sign of what’s to follow in the next twelve tracks. Not because of the tone or the lightness, but because of how big the track truly is. And while many fans are sure to draw comparisons between this and its Lights and Sounds counterpart, it is worth nothing that “Three Flights Up” closes in upon its piano centric melodies, whereas the layers of elegant strings in “Convocation” continue to swell until its conclusion. 

“Transmission Home” picks up where “Convocation” leaves off: with hollow, booming drums before diving into a crunchy guitar melody. The verses are grounded and clear-cut, contrasting with the spacious choruses that have Key pleading into the void: “I will send a transmission home/To say that I’ve been out here too long alone/And I wanna come down now.” The bridge brings him back down with its sweet piano melody and soothing violins, while the synths sparkling just beneath the surface lend an ethereal awareness.

Lift A Sail is possibly Yellowcards biggest album to date. The album sees the band, after nearly a decade; finally decide to reinvent their music by returning to their roots instead of punching out the contrived pop-punk anthems as they had grown accustomed to. Lift A Sail is a massive…

When I sat down to write this review, I found myself staring at Microsoft Word’s blinking cursor for at least 10 minutes, coming up blank. That’s not a common occurrence for me. Usually, when I write a review, it comes out fully formed, all in one sitting. But how could I review an album such as this? What could I say that would speak to the experiences of other listeners and not just my own? The struggle was born from the fact that Yellowcard’s last album, Southern Air, became one of the most personal records in my life two years ago. That album came out toward the end of summer 2012, the summer before my senior year in college. It was my last summer in my hometown, my last summer before the real world set in, and songs like “Southern Air” and “Always Summer” just felt so fitting. Suffice to say that listening to an album that ends with the line “this will always be home” is particularly resonant when you’re driving away and don’t really know where your next “home” is going to be.
