I believe in God but I've no reason to follow. Lost my virginity to myself, I'm just sparks and meat. I believe in love, but I'm gassy, dank and... See the rest of the song lyrics

  1. Hebrews isn't the return to form listeners may have been expecting from Say Anything; instead it's something entirely better.

    Hebrews is a wholly new kind of album for the band. Is it cheesy, over the top and a little too saccharine? Yeah, but the first two of those apply in spades to the first couple Say anything records anyways, and honestly I’d rather have someone singing sweet nothings to me when they’re in their 30’s than try and continue spewing venomous bile that they haven't believed in since their early 20's.

    Given how fickle Bemis perceives some of his fans, changing up the formula so drastically is a bold move on his part, but it's one that ultimately pays off, making the album a creative high point capable of spawning enough critical debate to fuel a lifetime of Say Anything albums.

    Bemis may have grown up, but he's still a master at crafting poignant lyrics that take a sharp look at his fears of becoming irrelevant and thoughts about God. [Jul 2014, p.97]

    A lot of sounds to take in and some head-scratching here and there, but overall, Bemis takes a brave step in a good direction.

    Say Anything is back. The songwriting on this album is great. Bemis is in top form after the misstep of Anarchy My Dear. The only bad pointsSay Anything is back. The songwriting on this album is great. Bemis is in top form after the misstep of Anarchy My Dear. The only bad points on this album for me are that the instruments sound a little fake, as they are digital, and there are a few ok as opposed to great songs. Overall, this album is fantastic. Max has plenty more to say after all. Expand
