It's also a very versitle cd. it goes every which way. there are driving punkish grunge songs like "jimmy shaker day" and "unwind". they manage to keep their heavy quite nice vocally as well on "she's up, she's down" and the explosive "are you there?".
they show that they can write beautiful songs as well. songs like "halo" and "tightrope" are amazing songs; musically and lyrically. "champion" is also quite nice. these are songs that once you hear, you feel the urge to listen again...and again.
other songs such as "benign" and "goodbye" are so amazingly catchy and radio-friendly that it's quite shocking that this cd didn't do that commercially well. they're just so well-written and fit in w/ everything they play on radio. "yours if you like" is another song just like that. its just good. i really think they would've sold more cds if they marketed it in a different direction. a song like "back home years ago" would explode over radio.
THE POINT: this really is one of the best cds i've heard. it's one of my personal favorites that i always come back to. Oleander have a sound you could call Stone Temple Pilots meets Nirvana. That works for me cuz they pull it off beautifully. BUY BUY BUY
Favorite Songs (though, they are all quite nice):
1. back home years ago
2. are you there?
5. she's up, she's down
1.Come to Stay- Bouncy, kinda punkish opening track. Decent enough, but the chorus is kind of irritating. (3/5)
2.Yours If You Like- Kinda slower, with some pretty cool vocal work. (4/5)
3.Are You There?- The single, a bit different from any of their other stuff. Pretty good, but I've gotten a bit tired of it. Plus, as I mentioned before, it sounds a lot like the Deftones, who I'm not a big fan of. (4/5)
4.Halo- Very soft ballad. Not bad, but the use of metaphors in the lyrics is embarrassingly corny ("There's an anchor on my heart dragging me down?" O-kay). (4/5)
5.Benign- I guess you'd describe it as a power ballad. One of my favorites off the album. You gotta love that chorus, you'll have it stuck in your head for days. (5/5)
6.Unwind- Kind of a fast song to get things going after the back-to-back ballads. A good song, but not a great one. (4/5)
7.Goodbye- Kind of mid-tempo, with a heavy riff. Another one of my favorites. (5/5)
8.Jimmy Shaker Day- Based on the clip, I didn't think it'd be that good, but it's actually one of my favorites. Very punkish and catchy. (5/5)
9.Back Home Years Ago- Excellent ballad with very touching lyrics. Another fave. (5/5)
10.Tightrope- Kinda boring, really. I hear the Lenny Kravitz comparisons, someone else I'm not a big fan of. And, there's those metaphors again ("tightrope of razorblade wire"...groan). (3/5)
11.She's Up, She's Down- Once again, a fast song to get you going after the double ballads. Good song, but not real memorable. (4/5)
12.Champion- Nice little ballad to end it all. Kinda corny and Goo Goo Doll-ish, but I still love it. (5/5)
All in all, a very good album. The first one was pretty good, but not anything like this. This is one of the best new albums I've bought this year, along with Staind's "Break the Cycle", Tool's "Lateralus", and Megadeth's "The World Needs a Hero". I cannot recommend it enough.
