    Change for the better

    I got to hear the interview with Justin (lead singer/songwriter for the band) as they played segments of the tracks. Normally I like to form my own opinion on song meanings as they impact and relate to everyone differently but i was interested to hear what he had to say. I agree with the other review - this release does not have the edge the earlier works do, but then again, the band is in a different place. Justin was going through a messy divorce, custody battle for his daughter, drug abuse issues, mental illness struggles... He has now cleaned up and is in a much happier state of mind and the songs reflect this. The song Hard Candy reminds him that the lure and downward spiral of recreational drug use is always close. Even though it is a departure from the bands other works, I really love the album, even more having heard Justin reflect on each song and what they meant to "him".

    This band never disappoints me. Every CD they create is amazing and this latest one is really good. The songs are a little softer and more mellow than the previous CDs, but that is because their music changes with every new CD. Each CD is unlike the one before it, and that is what makes their music so good. If you like Blue October, then you will like this latest CD. If you never heard of them, then listen to this CD, and you will probably decide to buy their previous CDs. The songs will not only grow on you, but you will find yourself singing along with them over and over.

    Justin used the last release to try to heal his wounds, and while I'm very sorry for the troubles he's been through, I don't know if all that raw emotion - negative emotion - was something I can listen to all the time. This release however is amazing! Back to the Blue October I know and love. This is really one of the best albums I've listened to in a long long time. I love it!

    When this album came out, I was wondering if it could be as good as their previous album as always. Of course as always it was amazing!! This time it's not as dark as the previous album, but it's still beautiful. Amazing music and Justin's amazing voice!! what else can you ask for!!

    Lost the angry, edgy sound that was their hallmark

    If you liked the raw, angry, edgy sound of Blue October on Approaching Normal, Foiled, Consent To Treatment, etc., odds are you won't like this disc. If you liked the softer, more pop sound of AMIA, then odds are you'll like this disc. For me anyway, it's unfortunate that they have lost the sound of their earlier work.

    We have been Blue October fans for a few years now and this CD is another good outing. Better than the last one and not as edgy as the BO of a few years back but still very good. They sound even better live and we hope to catch them on tour.

    I love Blue October. This album is a lot softer than most and I listened to it more than once before I really fell in love with it, but it is much better than their last album but not quite where Foil was. However it is a good album, that I was very pleased with. Worth a buy.
