5.0 out of 5 stars
I think this album is really amazing., 30 Nov. 2009
Ok there wont be the old our lady peace type albums again but don't let that stop you from this album.
All You Did Was Save My Life: this is an amazing song as the first single and as the an opener to an album. Fairly quick speed and amazing sound. an instant favourite for me. 10/10.
Dreamland: Another great song with great lyrics and guitars. 9.5/10
Monkey Brains: this again is an instant favourite of mine. great bass lines, guitars, drums and lyrics. the bridge of this song has an amazing acoustic part which is completly different from the rest of the song but still sounds great. 10/10
The End Is Where We Begin: The second single and another amazing song here. again like the opener track it's fairly quick once it gets into it. 9/10
Escape Artist: Definatly one of my favourites on this album. didnt like it much at first but its definatly a grower and possibly a future single. Also has a great solo. 10/10
Refuge: Anohter great song. not quite as good as the first 5 tracks but still good. and also growing on me alot. 8.5/10
Never Get Over You: Also one of my other favourites. instantly loved this song when i first heard it. great guitars lyrics and possibly a future single. 10/10
White Flags: To be honest for me the weakest song on the album but i still like it. it just doesnt have the same feel as the other songs do. and this is as low as the album gets. 7.5/10
Signs Of Life: A great ballad really like this on first listen. 'the sound of quiet is deafaning' is a great line and shows the how good a songwriter raine and the rest of the band are. 8.5/10
Paper Moon: Another incredible song with a great solo which to me sounds a bit like the 4am solo. Easily another favourite and song grower. 9.5/10
Time Bomb: Wasnt to bothered about this song at first but has growing on me recently and love the fast paced ending with the drums. and also has a great chorus. 9.5/10
The Right Stuff: this song for me isn't amazong but is still quite good with catchy guitar riffs and lyrics in the chorus. 8/10
Also the dvd is great to watch as well and some of the songs sound better live than the studio version. great to watch.
overall i rate this album about 9/10. im sure our lady peace will have more great albums like this to come in the future. Very highly recommend.
