Out of Nothing

If you reside in the shadow of Coldplay, you could do worse than having Chris Martin pen your material. Embrace did just that, adding his ”Gravity” to this, their first studio album since the 2001 import If You’ve Never Been. After years of silence, singer Danny McNamara is also ready to explode on his own, though — into emotional balladry, that is, crooning like the actual gravity of Out of Nothing depended on it. The result is a set of bombastic, fist-pumping pop downers for the terminally lovelorn and musically ecstatic.
