Say Anything - Hebrews
Release Date: June 10, 2014
Record Label: Equal Vision
Hebrews is the newest update of Max Bemis's life. I've always preferred Is A Real Boy, myself, but this has blown me away. With the pure rawness of Max's voice as he entails and calls himself the "bearded sloth" to the screaming in "Boyd," I love every moment of Max's singing. The only thing I despise about this record is the instrumentals; it's not fit for the rawness of Max's voice. Pulling no guitars was a terrible move.
This is my 5th run of Hebrews as I sit here and write ("A Look" is playing). The metaphors are drenched deep inside this album, such as the pedophilia references or wanting to overthrow God just to get crucified in "Nibble Nibble."
I actually despised this album on my 1st listen. But like every other Say Anything album, it's grown on me because I can relate in almost every way to the lyrics. And holy shit, I can actually listen to the chorus without getting my interests thrown aside. I think most of the choruses of the songs should have been done by Max. I give this album a 8.5/10. "Lost my Touch" and "Nibble Nibble" are my favorites if you must know.
