YAY REESE ROPER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Okay, so this is one of the best cd's I've ever heard. I LOVE this CD. I was very dissapointed that they edited Heart Still Beats though, infact I was increddibly Pi***d off(Yeah, I did that on purpose)!!!! They should have left it the way it was, they weren't using the words just to use them, they were making a point and talking about the way someone else veiws the world. Daylight is deffinitely my fave. The emotion is so raw and it gets to me every time. I still get tears in my eyes when I hear the song. My friend and I gave a copy of the CD to a kid I've met before who is NOT a christian and we're praying God will really use it. Wow!!! What more can I say about this CD???? It's simply fantastic!!! BTW has anyone listened to Roper?

Looks like I get the honors:p

Possibly the best CD I have ever heard. I love this CD with a fierce passion. :) I'm not even close to joking.

I bought this cd with some dread, seeing as "so far from home" the debut album of BS2 is so increadable it's one of my favorite cds... but I bought it anyways, popped it into my cd player, and it's hardly left it (only for the other cds I recieved for my b-day) the whole album is amazing, there are more electric guitar parts than the previous cd, which allows for louder stronger songs...
Once again Reese's voice shines, and his lyrics are awesome this time around...

personal fav songs:
The Sun Also Rises
Enamel
Estrella
Heart Still Beats
Daylight
Binary

When you read this review, I hope it hurts like (turntable scratch).

wow.....


That's pretty much all I can say about this cd. A truly incredible cd. It's sad that it wont get the recognition it deserves. Reese's voice and lyrics are awesome. Some of these songs almost made me cry. Estrella, daylight, heart still beats, and enamel are prolly the most powerful songs. This is definatly not a cd you can pop in for a quick listen. This is the kind of cd that you put in and sit down and listen to it. The songs are awesome, from the lyrics to the melodies to the vocals, it all ties togather to produce one of the best (if not the best) album of the year (or previous years).




(too bad the poll only goes up to ten :( )

I think this one sounds a lot like Far from home, only much richer and more mature. It is definitely a tremendously great cd. I gave it a 9, I reserve the 10 for only the classics, I would consider an 8 to be worth the money you spent on it (which is high praise nowadays, because of course, you did buy it and didn't steal it off the internet so that Reese can eat food). So a 9 means spectacular. I like every song on it, and I think the first and last songs fit perfectly in their slots.
My favorites are,

1. The Sun also Rises (this song is better than Space Robot 5 and I really liked that one)
2. Binary
3. Daylight
4. Heart Still beats

The rest are all awesome but I especially look forward to those.

[QUOTE=SuperChicken]Actually Dennis sings "The Heart Still Beats" and "Recall" as well, but Reese's vocals do shine in Binary and Estrella.[/QUOTE]

dennis also wrote those songs. i love the song Recall. but at the moment, my favorite song is Anestasia because it reminds me of a girl that is very special to me(no, she isn't my girlfriend, but for a while she was my best friend and the only person i could really talk to and be myself around. do i like her the way reese likes anestasia in this song? yes, i do. but we're friends for now, especially because she lives in another state now.

It was a great cd, but the fact that they used some words that they did is dissappointing. I thought they had higher standards than that.

I only wish you were joking. *sigh*

I talked to Reese the other day and he said that BS2 is scheduled to record their third and final album in December... working title: The Dreams We Dare to Dream. Hooray!

Don't buy this CD if you are looking for sugar-coated songs about how wonderful it is to be a Christian. This album contains some of the most truthful, moving songs I have heard about things we all struggle with: death, love, and the plight of the down-and-out. Through all of this BS2 points to the only answer there will ever be: Jesus Christ. I can't wait for the next Brave Saint Saturn CD.

i have their debut cd, but ive never heard this one. after reading the reviews, however, im gonna buy it soon!

Posted on 07-10-2003 by Art
Matt, if you liked the first one, you'll like this one as much, probably more. No Shawow of Def type stuff, though. :(

Posted on 07-10-2003 by SenorPapaCabasa
what?! aww man, i guess ill survive though.

"Im a crazy fresh, crazy silly fresh DJ....BAM!!!!!!!"

Posted on 07-10-2003 by Art
Yeah... I missed that... but this CD is far more structured... Very well put together. it flows like a monkey.

Posted on 07-14-2004 by guitarfreak217
what do you mean Hooray. it's cool that they're doing another album, but it's sad that they're going away too.

Posted on 07-15-2004 by twins_fan
Yeah it's sad but they were only planning on doing 3 albums in the first place. It's a space trilogy. When I talked to Dennis in November he said they didn't have any plans to record the third album yet, but now I'm just happy that I get to hear more of Brave Saint Saturn in the not-so-distant future. I also have high hopes for Roper, the new band that Reese is starting. The first album comes out in October.

What was so bad about the beginning? I agree that the latter part is probably better, but to label it as "the dumbest stuff I've ever heard" is......a huge misdoing to the album. I mean, just huge.

It's Reese Roper. At his finest. Everyone should own this right now.

9.

I jus got the Light of THings Hoped For cd, and its GREat! my favorite song is Daylight. It's incredible! Brave Saint Saturn's songs are better than the majority of FIF's songs too.

Ehh, I totally disagree with that. They are a totally different style...

Posted on 10-12-2003 by Visirale
Anyone notice Reese's vocals on The Heart Still Beats Inside? They are spetacular. He goes from normal Reese, to sounding like the guy from green day, to sounding from the dude from Audio Adrenaline. This album really let him display his vocal talents, because a majority of FIF songs he's just using his "ska" voice... But yeah, this album is a masterpiece.

Posted on 10-15-2003 by Unregisted
Actually Dennis sings "The Heart Still Beats" and "Recall" as well, but Reese's vocals do shine in Binary and Estrella.

Yeah, and some of the Five Iron Frenzy stuff is really great, don't get me wrong. I was just surprised that Brave Saint Saturn was really good too. And actually, Most of the New FIF stuff is better than Brave Saint Saturn. But i think Daylight is better than all of the FIF songs, though On Distant Shores comes very close to it.

Yes, and Justin McRoberts does the BG vocals on that song.
