A Dream Too Late
Intermission To The Moon



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 11 tracks: 42 minutes, 12 seconds
Street Date: November 6, 2007


Emerging from the musically fruitful location of Albany, Oregon, A Dream Too Late is ready to make their grand entrance into the music industry with the release of their debut, Intermission To The Moon. Having toured with well-known counterparts such as Falling Up, and fellow newcomers like The Send, and Ruth, they have already received extensive exposure. Only time will tell if their music can measure up to the standards and musical tastes of the masses abroad.

The sounds of electronic synths and acoustic strums fill the atmosphere as "14th And Knott" opens up the album, providing the listener with a complex yet simplistic message about the roads of life. "Do You Believe (In Ghosts)?" is pretty self-explanatory lyrically, and with electric riffs and heart-pounding drums, this one is sure to become a fan favorite. "Intermission To The Moon" reveals the one true fact about life: we have only one chance and one shot, so let's make it count. "Trendsetter" illustrates that there is more to life than popularity or the latest trends and upgrades, while promoting another positive message with added creativity and flare musically and vocally.

"The Life" relates to the art of the personal surrendering of our lives, incorporating elements of spirituality to the record. "City Parks" fuses harmonizing vocals with pulsating tempo, fabricating yet another favorite tune. The mellow rock ballad "Be Honest" is very direct in its approach, depicting the importance of honesty and integrity within a person's character.

"Can I Start New?" exemplifies the longing we have as Christians to start over with a clean slate, granting the listener the decision on how they decipher the situation. "Daylight" describes the omnipresence of God and how we can see Him in everything ("I am one, You are all around, everywhere"). "Airsick" intertwines ambient vocals with a solid, clear-cut rhythm, portraying the fact that we cannot accomplish anything by ourselves. "A Night Polaris" expresses the urge to escape and get away for awhile, delivering a finishing touch to the release.

It's very hard to find a Tooth and Nail band with the capability of great sound quality with spiritual messages bound throughout the entire record. A Dream Too Late has proven that one can have both, creating an album that's one-of-a-kind. This record is proof that A Dream Too Late has musical, lyrical, and vocal qualities that are beyond compare. There is no doubt in my mind: this is definitely an appealing debut from a promising new act.
