4.0 out of 5 stars Good but must be given a chance, 22 July 2008
This review is from: The Open Door (Audio CD)
I bought this and played it in my car, as i have a long and boring motorway journey every day, and as i already had Fallen in the changer i was able to directly compare the two. And at first i think this didn't help - I felt that those who had levelled criticism at this album were right. It does seem a little bland and underwhelming at first listen compared to its catchier predecessor.

However i stuck with it and after the third time of listening i really started to get into some of the tracks. I must admit that turning it up loud did help!

I think that once you give a bit of attention to the album, some of the subtlety and originality comes out in most of the tracks, which i think are actually all more 'individual' than on Fallen.

I still think Fallen is the best album, as it has that real punchy and instant lure that Open Door lacks, but if you are willing to give this a go as a less 'commercial' album it works really well. My favourite tracks at the moment are Call me when you're Sober and Only One; but that's liable to change as i listen and i think that's what makes this album interesting.
