All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
The line between "angelic" and "wimpy" is a pretty subjective one. The Militia Group calls Aaron Marsh's vocals "angelic" and "breathy" -- others might hear lightweight and wimpy. But there's no denying the beauty his throat generates when he's at his best, and he's at his best more often than not on Copeland's sophomore effort. In Motion is a surprisingly varied album, offering everything from the muscular emo attack of "No One Really Wins" to the waltz-time accordion-and-falsetto strangeness of "Kite." Although the band's configuration is the standard rock & roll lineup of two guitars, bass, and drums, the vocals are layered so elegantly that the band often sounds ...

Although the band's configuration is the standard rock & roll lineup of two guitars, bass, and drums, the vocals are layered so elegantly that the band often sounds much bigger notice in particular the very nicely arranged "Sleep" and "Love Is a Fast Song"; from time to time the band also brings in woodwinds and strings, which offer a highly effective counterpoint to the slabs of big guitar that generally dominate the sonic landscape. As an added surprise, the package includes a bonus disc that offers four acoustic versions of two songs each from In Motion and Beneath Medicine Tree. Strongly recommended.

    Second Chance

    Ok, admittedly, Beneath Medicine Tree was a decent album. It combined relatively intelligent lyrics with decent musical composition, but (of course there's a BUT - right?) it was EXTREMELY boring - not so with In Motion. This is without-a-doubt one of the best albums of 2005! I was amazed by how much these guys have stepped up their sound. From the rocking guitars in "No One Really Wins" and "Love Is a Fast Song" to the haunting beauty of tracks like "Kite" and "Sleep" every song is a perfect example of excellent musicianship. If you don't already have this CD in your collection you should know that you are doing yourself a major disservice. Please, please, if you enjoy great music and you want to have a COMPLETE collection - buy this CD. Trust me.

    In Motion

    This newest CD by Copeland is really good. I'm amazed on how good this CD is. Beneath Medicine Tree, their first CD, was great and I didn't have high hopes for this one. But I was so wrong. This band is great and needs to be recocnized more. I reccommened this CD for anyone who likes christan rock or soft rock.
