Falling Up
Falling Up

Release Date: November 13, 2015

I want to make it clear that what I'm about to say is not hyperbole. I don't merely think Falling Up deserves this spot as Christian music's best album of 2015; I think Falling Up's self-titled swansong is one of the greatest rock albums of all time. In fact, I'm not sure that a better rock album has been released since. Highly publicized as the band's final album, this self-titled effort is the true culmination of everything they'd been working toward throughout their career (especially post-hiatus). Now, our staff has a wide array of opinions about Falling Up's discography, from my fringe opinion that Exit>Lights and Fangs! are top tier to the more common opinion that Your Sparkling Death Cometh is a masterpiece (which I strongly disagree with). But we almost universally agree that Falling Up is on a different level. As our staff writer Timothy once told me, "This album is an order of magnitude better than anything else in their discography" -- and he says that as a massive fan of most of their albums. These twelve songs are bursting with energy, ideas, emotions, melodies, details, and more, creating a unique musical universe over the course of an hour that never wastes a second of your time, even when a song is seven minutes long. We're six years into exploring the depths of this album, yet the surprises and thrills have never ceased.
        - Chase Tremaine

Falling Up was/is an under appreciated band and their Self-Titled swan song is absolutely a Top 100 album of CCM history.
