I CAN ONLY HOPE THEY'RE RIGHT...,
This review is from: The Courage Of Others (Audio CD)I put this album on and, after about 5 minutes, forgot I was supposed to be listening to something.
When I checked back in awhile later, it sounded like it was still on the first track.
It's not an unpleasant sound, but the lead singer's voice is not very versatile and they seem to have done every song in the same key with similar harmony structure.
I can only hope that all the reviews saying the album is a 'grower' and how it sounded repetitious at first but, after repeat listens, all was revealed, prove to be accurate.
Maybe it's a failing in my attention span these days but I don't tend to go back to things very often that don't grab my attention right up front, but I will play this album a few times and trust, as the title states, the courage of others.
P.S. Still listening. It's definitely the singer's vocal range and the harmonies that make the tracks sound the same. Come on, enlightenment!

fully agree, I was also hoping for a bit of variation in the vocals. every track has the same style and modulation of vocal, making it all blur into one song on repeat button
