Once in a lifetime album
on 19 November 2002
every now and again an album will come along that is so brilliant that you'll stop thinking that all new artists that emerge are a pile of s**t and realise that there is some hope in world of music.
this album is one of them.
after hearing 'perfect day' on the american pie 2 soundtrack i went out and bought this album with little optimism. i thought perfect day would be a stand out track. i was SO wrong. every song dffers from the last and the album is perfect whatever mood u may be in. it lifts you up when you are sad and yet there are still tracks on it which make you tingle inside. 'don't wait for the sun' and 'safer on the outside' do just that.
i'm a fool has the most brilliantly uplifting guitar riff at the beginning that makes you want to jump up and down around the room and scream with delight. it has to be one of the best tracks on the album.
'another perfect day' is the only acoustic sng on the album and sounds weak compared to other tracks, but still satisfies greatly.
there is no way you can pick out one single track from this album and say it is the best. every song is a masterpiece in itself.
i bought this album about 6 months ago but only recently started listening to it again and realised ive been missing out. every time i play it i am reminded of its brillinace.
if you dont own this album, go get it, even if your not a fan of melodic meaningful solid rock. i promise you will love it.
