Manchester Orchestra – Mean Everything To Nothing (6/10)


Sophomore LP from a band who despite their name have nothing to at all do with Manchester, hailing in fact from Atlanta, GA. The presence there of OutKast and sunshine does little to raise their spirits, however, and Mean Everything To Nothing is comprised mostly of sub Cobain adult alternative angst courtesy of lead singer and guitarist Andy Hull.

Fans of guitars will no doubt find something to get their teeth into here, either among the Bright Eyes style acoustic-introspective numbers (The River) or in the rocky, hooky loud-quiet-loud of In My Teeth.
