Embrace hasn't had a successful album since its 1998 debut, The Good Will Out
-- until now. On the British quartet's fourth album, Out of Nothing
, a song penned by Coldplay's Chris Martin (the crescendo-filled "Gravity") and the surge of emotionally pulling, feelings-showing-from-the-inside-out type of music that Embrace has always made makes up for lost time. The group hits a power chord swell with "Someday" that is as formidable as anything Martin has written, while lead singer Danny McNamara's pleading cries of pain on the panoramic "Near Life" strike a sensitive nerve.
