Anyone remember Embrace? Their debut album “The Good Will Out” was one of 1998’s best releases – an excellent mix of Oasis and The Verve and all sweeping big choruses. Your regular excellent British indie CD, it was widely available in the US, and fortunately, widely available cheap and used (Remember, this was pre-Napster). It’s worth every bit of the 1 cent it is going for on ebay.
For some reason, in 2004 Embrace has waged a comeback, and it’s pretty ferocious. Someone at Independiente was smart enough to sign Embrace to a new contract and give them all the time in the world to record an album. The resulting album “Out of Nothing” is a rare surprise, as it’s not only great, it’s probably Embrace’s best album. Shocking, considering that this same band has released nothing of note for nearly 6 years.
