Yellowcard Lift a Sail 4. Review Summary: Our darkest days are done. Rank: 0 for Project 2. I was ready to follow him wherever, just to escape the heartbreak that I too had recently endured.
I never imagined how different things would be a mere two years into the future. Lift a Sail is really unlike any album the band has made before, and any dedicated, longtime fan will know exactly how shocking that is. Yellowcard is a band of habit, with members who pride themselves on consistency over genre-bending experimentation, and this approach has served their fans quite well over the years.

The guitar is chill-inducing when combined with the lyrics. I see it in my mind, I feel it, this song has tunneled deep within my brain and set up shop.

The song builds up to so much without ever stepping out of that 85 bpm. That, to me at least, is symbolic of the storm spoken of in the song. You can see the cloud bank on the horizon. You can smell it coming toward you on the water.
The sky along the edge of the bank becomes a creamy orange and then the wind starts. It does something to me, very noticeable. Yes, songs do that to me all the time but this one is special.
