Long-Awaited, But Well Worth The Wait

"I have anticipated the release of "The Moon Is Down" for a long while now, as Tooth & Nail kept promising that it was "coming soon!" But now it is finally here, and I am not disappointed in the least. Driving guitars fuel this album from start to finish, as Chris Carrabba's unmistakeable voice rages above the music. It usually takes me about 5 listens before I can claim favorite tracks, but I'll be daring and let you know which ones stood out after the first two or three spins: "The Moon Is Down" (which begins with a sweet stereophonic effect of a plane taking off above your head), "The Bradley", "Monachetti", "New Year's Project", and "Pictures of Shorelines".Unfortunately Chris Carrabba is no longer a part of FSF, but the band will continue to rock in his absence. Be sure to catch his new project, Dashboard Confessional; they have released two LPs and one EP, and their acoustic emo rock is beautiful.I recommend this album to fans of the Juliana Theory, Dear Ephesus (geez I miss those boys), A New Found Glory, and the Get Up Kids."
Unabashed, Unpretentious, and Just Good

"I know, I know, chances are unless you are part of underground music circle you have never heard of this album. This Floridian band released their first full-length album The Moon is Down with Tooth and Nail Records. This Seattle-based record company is known for discovering bands such as MXPX and P.O.D. They are Christian company and represent bands of the same profession.
This album is a breath of fresh air from the mundane melodies that have filled our airwaves over the last couple of years. Further Seems Forever from the obscure genre known as emo (a limited definition of emo refers to a underground music genre which is basically "emotional rock", outpourings of the heart set to a rock beat). You can spot these "emo" kids by their shaggy haircuts and Goodwill tees. They're goal is to not be trendy which is now the trend. The music, however has not caught on like the clothes, but is a treasure to those who find it. The music scene has been looking rather thin lately, but Further Seems Forever with their complex and introspective lyrics bring us back to a lyrical quality that has been absent in recent years. I personally enjoyed the poetic value and their extensive vocabulary usage. The acoustics did not have to bring value to the words; they stand on their own. They incorporate Christian themes and their own testimonies in a very personal and authentic manner. Wow, breaking out of the Christian bubble! College kids this album might involuntarily broaden your vocabulary and your mind! Though lyrically obscure don't discount this band with verses like:
"This is unparalleled a grace that's like gravity, clarity I've never seen"
Their lyrics are not the only catchy guitar riffs will draw you in. There is no compromise of their musical integrity on any of the ten tracks on this album. Further Seems Forever, raw and unedited till the end. This album would fall in the ranks of Dashboard Confessional (this was Chris Carrabba's project before Dashboard), Juliana Theory, and Saves the Day.
I leave you with this: finding good music is like shopping at Goodwill, you have to dig through a lot of junk to find a treasure. But think of how more meaningful it is to find something of worth on your own and not have it spoon-fed to you. Try to not sell out to the commercialized music industry, think for yourself! You'll feel a lot better about yourself, and the fact that you didn't get sucked in to buying that Britney Spears album."
