Collective Soul

Collective Soul gained a special place in the hearts of music lovers when they burst onto the scene in 1993 with the rock anthem “Shine.” It’s hard to imagine that the band has been making music for nearly 2 decades since then. Hard, that is, until you turn on the radio and find yourself singing along to “Staring Down,” the new radio smash ... Read more in Amazon's Collective Soul Store

Modesty is a hard thing to pin-point in music, especially with the ammount of sheer egotism there is around today. Collective Soul have always written modest songs, and their secret ingredient has always been a simple song that's effective, but always sounds more than it is. Genuine emotion is also a big part of it, but Collective Soul have always written modest songs for modest people.
I say they, lead-singer/guitarist, Ed Roland writes all Collective's songs, but despite their simplicity, there's always something different about each song, despite their simple one-or-two-riff stylings, to go with the usual heartfelt lyrics. The difference between Collective Soul and others who follow a similar system, particularily in pop-rock, is that Collective Soul always pull it off much more effectively. Take opening cut, 'Precious Declaration', which is, of course, modest, it has a very catchy riff, some fine lyrics and the sort of catchy, refreshing chorus that made Collective famous. The same goes for 'Listen', which like 'Precious...' became a hit in its own right, and despite the way they do that, and have excellent singles, Collective Soul are a highly consitent album band. The super catchy, 'Maybe' is a prime example, and the winding, 'Full Circle'. If the songs don't directly relate to the title, you will find a crafty way that Roland has snuck the meaning into the song (Full Circle's main section says, 'Round and round and round' for example).
For some, Collective Soul could become tired because their songs do tend to follow a similar vein, but the overall catchy style and refreshing and surprisingly different sounds they seem to put out will help the listener through. If you liked the singles, you will more than likely like the rest of 'Disciplined Breakdown'.

Personal Thoughts: One of th best CD's out. Very few CD's come out with all the tracks listenable, however Collective have done it, all tracks are amazing. Especially 10 "In Between" one of the best tracks I have ever heard.
This CD should be a part of every Collective Soul fans collection, if not GO GET IT!

Possibly the Best of Collective Soul 9 July 2003
By Batmanbrb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first heard of Collective Soul with the single "Shine" and I was a little impressed, but not enough to buy the CD. When "Disciplined Breakdown" came out, I decided to give it a shot. WOW!! Talk about major growth as artists!! I was amazed at the complexity and layers of their music as well as the deepness of their lyrics. "Precious Declaration" is one of my favorite songs to rock out to, "Listen" is very artistic pop/rock, "Maybe" is one of my favorite songs - speaks of the feelings you experience of losing someone close to you - beautifully acoustic guitar here. "Full Circle" and "Blame" are gems of pop/rock music as well with very intense lyrics. This was one of the most under-sold and under-rated CDs of the 90's and remains one of my most-played CDs even today. I highly recommend this band to people who value deep lyrics and artistic music... Collective Soul does not disappoint!

Incredible 4 Sept. 2002
By Justin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Collective Soul's third release, and my personal favorite, is Disciplined Breakdown. The album didn't do as well as some of their others, probably due to the fact it is lighter and slower. However, this release shows a new level of creativeness and songwriting. Every song on the album is musically and lyrically amazing. Maybe is a cry of hope to a lost friend, Blame questions the use of anger("question your answers, truth has no anger")and critizes those who would tear others down, Forgiveness finds the writer searching their heart to learn to forgive, and In Between tells of two people who are divided because of their fear of confrontation. Those are just a few examples of the lyrical genius in this album. Overall, this is one of the bands best releases, not to be missed out on.

Two Halves 27 Nov. 1999
By "andy_stevenson" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The first 6 songs are great: Precious Declaration boasts great riffs and awesome lyrics. Listen has a cool sound and a freakin great guitar solo. Maybe is a nice tribute to a friend who's passed away. Full Circle blends horns nicely. Blame is just plain cool. Disciplined Breakdown is a perfect title track, since it pretty much represents this cd. After track 6, though, it just goes downhill. It's okay to have quiet rock songs, but these tend to blend into each other, and are a bit disappointing. Despite that, though, I still recommend this album. As an extra bonus: it was recorded in a cabin in the middle of nowhere!

Soul Moving Stuff 24 Feb. 2001
By Rob Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The greatness of a band is not in their hits, but in their albums...and this is a great one. Even after Collective Soul's fifth CD, Blender, I still find Disciplined Breakdown to be their best to date. Each song gives you the sensation that it is JUST THE ONE you were waiting to hear. There seems to be more musical depth here than in their other CDs. I'm amazed at how this album can stir the soul yet soothe it simultaneously. Ed Roland's lyrics aim for the head and the heart highlighting truth, love, faith, forgiveness, etc. Actually, many of the songs seem to ponder the journey itself with all it's choices, fears and wisdom to be gleaned while traveling the road of life in search of all that is great and sweet. Although the meaning of the lyrics is more general and vague than those of other albums such as Hints, this is not necessarily a bad move on the part of Collective Soul. For one thing, the subjectivity leaves the lyrical interpretation up to the listener, creating a sense of discovery. Maybe this is why this album feels so fresh yet so familiar. This album has great aesthetics in content as well as musical form. If you're unfamiliar with Collective Soul, this is your starting point.

Although only one track from the album really hit the big time, they are all worth hearing. This album is proof that Collective Soul is a band to stay. Regardless of what may be happening in the music world, they continue to turn out their own music. A great CD for music lovers, and for those who appreciate dedication to the art...
