I Wish We All Could Win

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
I Wish We All Could Win is the debut of the Afters, a Texas quartet whose slick alternative pop settles nicely between Switchfoot and Fountains of Wayne. They avoid the latter band's sardonic wit -- after all, Win is a joint release between Epic and Christian imprint INO. Instead, the Afters concentrate on bright and hopeful, but also pretty trite sentiment like "On this beautiful night/We'll make everything right/My beautiful love," and "Love Will You Make You Beautiful." Of course, they also tinge their pop hooks with wrangling guitars and the occasional whine of feedback "Someday"; the Fuel-ish "Way You Are", and Josh Haven's voice has a way of suggesting Thom Yorke's,...

Of course, they also tinge their pop hooks with wrangling guitars and the occasional whine of feedback "Someday"; the Fuel-ish "Way You Are", and Josh Haven's voice has a way of suggesting Thom Yorke's, so there's a little bit of Radiohead's dramatic dourness in "Beautiful" and "Wait" even if it's ultimately consumed by surging strings and the implication of the capitalized pronouns in the liner notes. The Afters wear their faith on their sleeves. But I Wish We All Could Win has plenty of crossover potential since, like Switchfoot, the band gathers their melodic sense from mainstream radio.

    Keep the music coming!!

    I first heard about the Afters on the Christian radio station--their song at that time playing was "You". I thought at that time, ok this is a pretty good song but the voices sounded weird and not my style. This year, however, I heard more of their songs--"Beautiful Love" and "All That I Am" and was totally blown away by how talented this group is! So I went on to Barnes and Noble's website and heard some demos of the songs and purchased the album a few weeks later. I have yet to be disappointed by The Afters music!! "All That I Am" is my favorite song though "Love Lead Me on" is preatty awesome. Don't hesitate to get this album if you like Christian music! I wish I hadn't.

    Awesome!

    Very good CD, and I am picky! I saw The Afters live & had to buy the CD on the spot. I love "The Way You Are" - The Afters rock.
