One of the most difficult issues I have when writing a review is where to start. That's why I don't write too many reviews. And with this album - or collection of EPs to be more accurate - I am having more difficulty than ever; not because there's nothing to say - far from it. This collection of songs are so diverse from EP to EP that there is too much to say. It is an awesome achievement by Casey Crescenzo and the band to pull off such consistent, high-quality output across all 36 tracks. There is not one dud track here. Of course we all have preferences and there will be some tracks that when time is short and one can't play the entire 2.5 hours worth of music, some tracks will be chosen over others. But for now, I have had the pleasure and benefit of playing all tracks as a collection on over half-a-dozen occasions and it is really the best way to take it all in and enjoy the ride! The concept of representing each colour in the spectrum via an EP of 4 tracks is pretty much par for the course for The Dear Hunter as they take a break effectively from the ongoing release of the 7 Acts series - they're only up to Act III so expect Act IV to be the next release from this fabulous band. This is a band who thinks big in concept and value and nothing is done in small measures. And one really wants to take care in presenting a review that does their fantastic work justice. Throughout the various styles on display here and the diverse characteristics represented by each colour, melodies and hooks are never far away and each EP delivers them in abundance.

Taking each EP in turn, briefly:

1. Black - Heavy progressive rock, complex (think Porcupine Tree, The Mars Volta, Muse)
2.

This album is a collection of songs taken from the colour spectrum EPs. Each EP has four tracks and we hear one from each here, though there are 2 white, and in the download an extra green.

The tracks vary in style as the "feel" or "mood" of each colour demand but you do get the dear hunter sound throughout.

I personally really like all the songs but thought the orange EP's "but there's wolves" is a drop in form from a usually very creative artist.

If you like this, be sure to check out the EPs as there are some very good tracks which were perhaps purposefully omitted from this album.

As a bonus, the record i received was a limited edition clear vinyl print.

Quality, Quantity Not Mutually Exclusive 21 Jun. 2011
By Jake - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD

With the completion of a trilogy, many have come to expect great works to fizzle or fade. Act I-III gave us some of the most unique and expressive music any fan of indie rock could expect. After singing along to 'Oh my god, what have I done?' towards the end of Red Hands, no man would hold a great band like The Dear Hunter to a similar standard of excellence. Most TDH fans, I would imagine, stood up at Act I, gave a thunderous applause to Act II, put out a nice golf clap to Act III, and after hearing about the forthcoming 36 track behemoth, thought they ought to sit down.

Stay standing my friends.

The complete collection of the color spectrum goes to some of the farthest sonic and emotive distances of the entire TDH library - and you won't be more excited. At 2.3 hours, it will give you the goosebumps and smiles that you'd ever want. Surveying sounds from Radiohead, Brand New, Manchester Orchestra, The Beach Boys, Bright Eyes, The Beatles, even Coldplay, there's a little something for everybody.

Don't whimp out. Block out an evening. And give yourself one of the best aural experience in years.

Great Songs Strange Selection 15 Aug. 2011
By Brandon Zarzyczny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Without a doubt, there are some great songs on this album, but I can't really understand the selection. With so many songs to choose from, they only picked 11 songs, making it barely over 40 minutes. Personally, I bought this album and downloaded a torrent of the entire selection, but if I hadn't I would be very annoyed at this album. I can only assume that the publisher chose the songs with no input from the band. My personal favorites from all of the eps would be pretty different, but in the end I don't mind supporting the band and there still are some great songs on this sampler album.

Skip the sampler, go for the full course 24 Sept. 2011
By Michael Mcewen - Published on Amazon.com
This album is kind of like a greatest hits for The Dear Hunter's Color Spectrum project which consists of nine EPs each based on a color. I'm thankful that it went on sale or I might have missed this incredible band. I was very much intrigued by the songs on sample here and set about trying to find out if the complete set would make more sense as a purchase.

The answer is easily "Yes." Like any greatest hit collection the song selection is a bit of a head scratcher. There aren't any bad songs on this set, but many of my favorites are absent. Plus hearing the songs together is amazing because they are so complementary. Basically if you like any of these color songs, you will probably like the entire EP.

My personal favorites from this set include Filth and Squalor (Black) which twitches and pulses like classic Nine Inch Nails. But There's Wolves (Orange) which just rocks with great harmonies. Lillian (Violet) a pop waltz which slowly builds to a rapturous crescendo.

I probably should have mentioned it early, but the band has a very eclectic style which I find very refreshing. They are comfortable playing all genres and styles.

Go ahead any buy this, but it is kind of like you're only getting a peek at the corner of a masterpiece.

Fantastic. 16 Jun. 2011

Some of the best The Dear Hunter has to offer! Taking a break from the storyline of their previous three albums, vocalist Casey Crescenzo pairs music with colors! A great buy for indie rock fans.
