Product Description

The much anticipated new album from LIVE 'Songs From Black Mountain' is here. The album title was inspired by a place (Black Mountain) near Ed's home in California - 'it has this mystical aura that reminds me of what it feels like to write a song'. Features the first single 'The River'.

I must admit that the latest offering from LIVE caught me out somewhat. I was expecting another hefty feast of new tuneful melodies in typical LIVE style, only to find something which is probably as near to dare I say ' middle of the road' as LIVE might ever dare to stray.

Commercial it aint, but it is obviously designed to attract the market of REM come Matchbox 20 fans that have not had the fortune to yet sample the geat band that LIVE is.

After 3 spins I am now merrily singing along to a very nice collection of catchy rock numbers which will hopefully attract a shed load of new listeners, if only it could get some airplay. Perhaps then LIVE might enjoy the recognition it rightly deserves as one of the best modern rock bands of our time! Where do bands go after such masterpieces as Secret Samadi? Its a tough act to follow, however LIVE have come up with something a little bit fresh, which whilst not being to every LIVE fans taste, it certainly does not disgrace itself. Give it a go.

I've been a huge Live fan for almost a decade now, and have been very impressed with this new album. In my opinion it's one of the best albums since Throwing Copper, however I'm only giving it 4 stars because it isn't quite as good as Throwing Copper. Still, a very very good album. So far the songs that have impressed me most are Mystery, Get Ready, Show, Love shines and Home. Having said that, the rest of the songs are decent and provide easy listening.

I'd been following the reviews on this album with interest before I finally gave in to curiosity and bought it for myself. "The River" has been getting a fair amount of radio play here, and although I was initially dubious, the song started to grow on me. Well, I should have taken into account that it was hitting middle-of-the-road radio stations and taken my cue from there. I'm terribly disappointed with the album. It seems that Live hit their pinnacle with the brilliant "Distance to Here". That came together as an awesome whole - each song contributed to a tight, inspiring collection. This cannot by any stretch of the imagination be said of "Songs from Black Mountain". The trademark Live sound has lost its heart - it's hard to put my finger on exactly what is wrong... poor lyrics and an iffy move away from the trademark style we were all used to... both contribute to this. I recommend sticking to the earlier albums, including the "Awake" best of album (which has an excellent DVD), and give this one a skip. Don't let YOUR curiosity get the better of you!

2 stars simply because I can't bear to give Live just one!

When I bought this album I was gutted - like one of the other reviewers said, Live hit their peak on The Distance to Here and I was mortified when I heard the pop-rock of Songs from Black Mountain. Still, because it was Live I kept the CD.

Last week though, a friend came by and asked if she could hear the new album and oddly enough, when I put it on again I found myself enjoying it. Sure, it's not the most sensational CD of 2006 but it's far from the worst and makes for good driving music if noting else. If you're already a Live fan, it's worth having for mindless background noise. If you're not a fan and want to be eased into the incredibleness that is Live then this is a good album to get you hooked.

When I first listened to the album, 'The River' and 'Mystery' totally blew me away. The strings on 'Mystery' gave me goosepimples on the back of neck. Awesome, should make a great single. Its not only already one of my faveourate Live songs ever, but one of my favourate songs ever, period. I liked it that much. Resisting the temptation to re-play the song I sat back, waiting to be blown away by the rest. Except, the rest left me feeling rather disappointed. Apart from 'Home', which I loved, the rest just kind of melted into one another.

But I persevered and have come to really enjoy the songs on the album. It certainly rewards perseverence, although I still believe some of the tracks are a bit too similar to one another. Other then the songs I've already mentioned, there are some special moments. Chad Gracey's drumming as always is some of the best going, although he seems to be a little more restrained on this album. Pat Dahlheimer's bass playing on Sofia is fantastic, and for me, makes the song another of my faves on the album. The Lyrics on Where Do We Go From Here? are excellent, as is some of Chad's guitar playing. Wing's is uplifting (sorry no pun intended) but had so much more potential to go further.

What do I not like? 'All I need' and 'You are not Alone' are filler tracks, nothing more, and a filler track is something previously unheard of on a Live Album. 'Night of Nights' should have been a fantastic song and a great close to the album but it is ruined because of the awful breaks in rythmn between verse and chorus. I am sorry guys but it just does not sound right. I wish they'd spent some more time working on that because it could of (and should of) been a great song. Everytime I hear the song now I wince at those parts and try and understand why, why?

Live were edgy and emotional on `Throwing Copper, slick and polished on `The Distance To Here', contemporary and quirky on `V' and clumsy and awkward on Mental Jewellery (I am being charitable - read as `rubbish'). Secret Samadhi was a mix bag of all of the above - soaring, say, on Gas Hed Goes West and contemporary and edgy on Lakini's Juice. But Secret Samadhi had another facet lurking in the musical roster, in `Turn My Head' - a sugary, nice and inoffensive tune that has all the bitterness of Turkish Delight (to stay with the Eastern theme). Which brings us to `Songs From Black Mountain', which is largely made up of quite similar radio friendly vapid songs that seem to come and go with all the impact of a snow flake.

Easing into first gear with `The River', things get off to a slow but promising start but it's not until Shine and Sofia that the hairs stand up on the back of your neck in the way Live have a knack of doing when in their groove. The song about God kind of jarringly breaks the back of the album, in the same way that if you were having a chat with someone at a party and half way through they looked you seriously in the eye and whispered - `by the way I keep a unicorn in my garage'. From here it's downhill in a happy clappy, vocal harmony, metaphorical tambourine bashing kind of way, with the last couple of tune sticking in the pallet like a 5th Mars Bar would if you were gorging yourself to be sick.

I have no idea why they decided to write a `nice' album - maybe it has something to with getting older and wanting to peddle more of a happy clappy religious persona - who knows. But there is nothing wrong with this. It's sort of Live `Lite' topped up with some Lemonade (and a cream topping).
