This review is from: The Madding Crowd (Audio CD)
I bought this album purely based on the reviews! I like to take chances on CD's that I havent heard, otherwise the world would be full of manufactered cr*p. After first listen I was happy, but not 100% confident that it was my wisest purchase. After having it for a few weeks and having a few listens, im very happy with this purchase. In the same league as Matchbox Twenty/Goo Goo Dolls and the rest! They sound like so many other bands, but not in a bad way!There are bits where they sound like Bon Jovi, Del Amitri, Train, even Coldplay. Everyone seems to like 'If I Am' and I can tell why. Other great songs are 'So Far Away', 'Wanna Be'. The best two songs are 'Bitter' and 'Revolve'. If anyone has ever come out of a relationship/friendship nothing good has come of it and you feel like you have wasted your time, then this song is perfect! Revolve is the type of song you want to hear when you have found the right person and you are willing to do anything for them. All in all a top album, and well worth a listen. Its not groundbreaking or anything new, but if you like MB20 of GGD then do you really want anything different?
