    Average like most cds these days, you're lucky you can find 3+ good songs.I've had it less than 2 weeks and it takes me a while to find favorites or totally give up and resell it. My boss heard it and asked it it was church or horror movie music.

    4-0 out of 5 stars No sophmore slump for Evanescence!
    I was concerned ar first about this record because most artists who do so well with their first record have a tendency to fall prey to the "sophmore slump" with thier second record.The Open Door, however, has no such problem.I find myself likeing this record more than I like Fallen, the first five songs in particular made me downright euphoric.This is a terrific album, and I highly recommend it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Make this CD your next music purchase
    The only song I don't like is "Call Me When You're Sober." I almost didn't buy this CD because of that song, thinking the rest would be like that awful song (an obvious bone they threw to the radio Gods). It is completely out of place with the rest of the CD. The rest of the CD is really great. Amy's voice is in top-form. The heavier songs remind me they are still the Evanescence I know and love, and the more melancholy songs are hauntingly beautiful. There is a tremendous layering of sounds on this CD (in a good way). There is a different take than what was heard on Fallen. Every band borrows a little from somebody, and this CD has percussion and sonic effects reminiscent of Tori Amos's "To Venus and Back", and some of the bass and guitar work reminds me a lot of The Gathering's "How to Measure a Planet?" I'm a fan of both, so it doesn't bother me! This CD is an outstanding follow-up to their debut. I think if they tried to make "Fallen Part 2" they would have failed. This is one of the best CD's of the year, no doubt about it.

    Editorial Review

    Born to be mild? Amos Lee's sophomore effort for Blue Note follows firmly in the gentle guitar strums of his well-received 2005 debut and opening slots for Norah Jones and Bob Dylan. Little has changed the second time around, which will come as a relief to those enthralled by his first release. He remains a sensitive sort, mixing his insightful, reflective lyrics with lovely, unforced melodies played by backing musicians that stay on low boil. These tunes go down as smoothly as hot chocolate on a cold day, yet Lee brings an unassuming sincerity to the proceedings with his cozy, amiable voice. Comparisons to Bill Withers and James Taylor are accurate if inevitable, but when the gospel organ quivers into "Skipping Stone," it's clear Lee isn't stuck in a folk-pop rut.Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Follow Up CD to "Amos Lee"
    I love this CD. I love the fact that Amos Lee is the type of artist who is true to his music and although he may not be considered "mainstream", music lovers will "get him" and his style. Sometimes, as I listen to the music of today,I get dishearted because I find no value in the music, no artistry. Well, "Supply and Demand" confirms to me that their is still real,thought provoking, moving,engaging,and creative artists around.Like his previous CD "Amos Lee", I love the lyrics in the songs."Shout Out Loud" is a great song to open with, and my teenagers ask me to play it over and over again...I have many favorites, including "Shout Out Loud", "Skipping Stone", "Supply and Demand", "Sweet Pea" ...o.k., I love the whole CD....In an age where you may get 1 or 2 songs on a CD that you really like, this CD is filled with songs you will love...Buy it, then enjoy!!!!
    5-0 out of 5 stars Superb
    This CD is a great follow up to his last CD. There are very few artists with the originality that Amos Lee has. If you enjoy any folk or easy listening this is a definite must to add to your collection.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is an entertaining new CD from Amos Lee
    I love this new CD from Amos Lee.The first single is entitled Shout Out Loud.This song really puts me in a great mood.His guitar playing is so energetic here.My favorite track is Long Line Of Pain though.It is a beautiful song about personal loss and loneliness. Sympathize is an another highlight on this disc.Amos Lee's subtle voice is filled with compassion for people who are down on their luck.Southern Girl is Amos' tribute to thecharm of a girl from the south.Night Train is a very pretty love song. Skipping Stone is a bluesy sounding song about trying to move on after the loss of a loved one.Freedom is an interesting track.It is a reminder that the pursuit offreedom should not lead to violence.The lyrics of this song are true and thought provoking. Sweet Pea is a simple and sweet song about coming home to someone special.Careless is an excellent song about the betrayal of a friend.I love the feeling of loss and sense ofhurt in Amos' voice on this track. Supply and Demand is a very entertaining CD by a talented young musician and song writer. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
    I got this CD because I loved their radio hits "Bring Me To Life" and "My Immortal." While those songs are beautiful, they are not representative of the rest of the album. Although I tried and tried to get into this CD, the hard rock teen goth style just isn't my cup of tea, and the lyrics are too depressing. If you are a fan of bands such as Linkin Park or Seether, you might enjoy this. However, if you only like "My Immortal" and "Bring Me To Life" because of Amy's powerful vocals, you'd be better off listening to Tori Amos or Sarah McLachlan.

    4-0 out of 5 stars October music
    What else can I add that the other reviews haven't already said? For me music usually unlocks feelings and emotions that very often are tied to places in time and seasons. This album feels like October in Maine to me. October is without a doubt the best month there is and if you ever have to be in Maine, October is the best time to be there. This album evokes the early twilight and cool breezes coming off Casco Bay, moving through the autumn leaves. Really an amazing album. Amy Lee is an amazing vocalist and I'd recommend this album to anyone who has an inner goth.

    Being a lover of great music, including the political genre of RATM as alot of you like to refer them as, and also Soundgarden and Temple of the Dog, and loving AudioSlave so much because of the devout attention they pay to the fact that they are a band and no one is going to do a solo CD, this CD jumped out as a fantastic result of guys loving what they do, collaborating in that and wanting to test the spiritual, blues, funk and rock envelope.Put some good headphones on, adjust your bass, treble, fade, etc. and listen to the words, the bassline, the drumbeat and the fact that without having to shove it down your throat or make a point, they CAN make you think. Rock snobs, do not apply.Cornell's voice is without a doubt at its best and he seems happy and content.

    Editorial Review

    In the liner notes to their major label debut, Oklahoma City's Hinder endorse tequila, Belvedere, Crown Royal, Jägermeister, and Mr. Watson 540. In "Get Stoned," photogenic Austin Winkler (who sounds tougher than he looks) rasps, "Let's go home and get stoned." Later, he adds, "The break-up is worth the make-up sex you're givin' me." In "Bliss (I Don't Wanna Know)," the lead singer laments, "The vodka's running on empty." This is a problem because, "I can't stay sober/if it's over." But things pick up in "Room 21" where he meets a "b*tch" with "red lipstick and pale pink boots," who shows him a good time (yes, he said Read more

    Dispite all the bad reviews, i enjoyed this album very much. I don't stick to one sound, I'll listen to anything from Whitesnake to Manson to Hinder. Hinder's beats and lyrics are catchy and i find myself singing along and "rockin" out in my car...I do get the occasional strange looks from others. I enjoy listening to them on my way to work, Hinder gets me pumped, ready for the day! Everyone has different tastes in bands and everyone's opinion should be taken into considereation. When i read the reviews, i don't get frustrated when i see a bad review, I'm happy i made this purchase, as a matter of fact...I think ill put Hinder's cd in now!!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Qualified
    I hated NIckelback.So the first two reviews I saw that trashed this band on account of nickelback were a plus.Recently, here in Anchorage we have a new "new rock" radio station, and they played "Lips of an Angel" pretty heavy and it caught me.Considering the local radio station (for those interested in esoterica, it's 98.7 The KZND and they rock) introduced me to "The Killers", "Snow Patrol", and "Three Days Grace", I will buy this album, and I bet I'll like it.Go sticker Joe!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Get Over It
    That's what I say to the first 2 reviewers with all the Nickleback comparisons."Lips of an Angel" is so far from anything Nickleback-ish that's it's not even in the same decade.This is a power ballad through and through reaching back to the great years of the format and ranking up with best of them right next to Tesla and the lot.I had almost thought that true power ballads in rock were dead till hearing this song.It's nice to see I was wrong.

    I bought this album the day it came out, and the more you listen to it, the more it grows on you.Sure, nickelback has a sound that hasn't changed much from Silver Side Up, but that's what many good rock bands do, find a sound and continue to evolve it.This album is multiplatinum for a reason.It bridges gaps over many radio formats and listeners.SO they release different songs to different stations, have many fareweather fans, ect...that is what they are in the music business for, to get their music heard by anyone who wants to listen. I myself prefer the heavier songs on the album.But the album as a whole is pretty solid stuff.
    1-0 out of 5 stars Album Number 5 but sounds like "number 2" pun intended.
    Title says enough. Rockstar is the last song on the album and it is being played on the top 40 stations. Change the title to Pop star. get them a cover on Teen Dreamz Magazine. "stay skinny"

    Editorial Review

    The premise was simple. Bruce Springsteen invites a dozen or so New York City musicians--packing banjos, fiddles, accordions and the like--to his New Jersey farmhouse for a three-day hootenanny, and tape is rolling. The results are sublime, his 21st album featuring their versions of songs harvested from Springsteen's dog-eared LPs by Pete Seeger. Not all written by Seeger, the songs are how the American folk icon interpreted them, and these organic recordings, with no rehearsals or overdubs, pay tribute with the simplicity and spontaneity he intended. It's not hard to link Springsteen's dissatisfaction with American politics to the protest song "We Shall Overcome" or even the Irish ballad "Mrs. McGrath," where he alters the lyrics to read, "I'd rather have my son as he used to be/Than the King of America and his whole navy." But the beauty of these Seeger Sessions are pieces that underscore the mood of the bandleader, which borders on down-home amusement: the bluegrass outlaw ballad "Jesse James," the Dylanesque "Pay Me My Money Down" and the euphoric "Jacob's Ladder," a gumbo-and-whiskey-fueled romp that could pass for the closing hymn at the Church of Asbury Park.

    This is a good buy for new listeners as well as old fans.It's good to hear the early stuff in a collection like this.Brings back many memories and recreates many moods.I am disappointed by recent REM recordings, but we always have music like this to appreciate.A must even for diehards.Nice packaging, too, with comments on many of the songs by the band members included in the accompanying booklet.

    This is really sad, this is an otherwise excellent collection. But in today's quest for everything to be LOUD, the over compressed this so that it's lost almost all dynamic range, and is just stressfull to listen to. You hear things you never did before-- BECAUSE THAT WEREN"T SUPPOSED TO STAND OUT IN THE MIX!Everything just stays at the same level, it sounds like there are some phase issues on some tracks as well.

    The acting was emotional and impressive, the singing was amazing and the movie was chilling and enjoyable. In fact, I can't stop watching it - it's like a train wreck everytime it comes on. My parents dragged me when I was a young child to a Johnny Cash/June Carter concert. As much as I hated the fact they couldn't get me a sitter, or leave me at someones house - I am truly touched now at the backstory to this concert I didn't want to go to, but enjoyed nonetheless. I wish I could go back in time to enjoy it knowing what I know now.

    Editorial Review

    Texas quintet Blue October has bounced from Houston-based indie darlings to the majors and back twice since their '98 bow. Yet there's little sense they've compromised much of their eclectic, creatively restless ethos in the bargain on this, their fourth studio album (and second major label stint). In the hands of less ambitious musicians, the personally harrowing, perfectly crafted "Hate Me" would have become template for the entire collection; here it's but the most commercially focused of band leader Justin Furstenfeld's eclectic musical obsessions. His taste for early '80s UK New Wave evinces itself in a fondness for lyrical shadows and fleeting sonic echoes of Richard Butler's P-Furs and Peter Gabriel. But it's in the collection's quieter, more reflective songs ("Let It Go" and "Congratulations" turn on Ryan Delahousaye's signature violin phrases; "X Amount of Words" effortlessly morphs through several intriguing techno conceits; "18th Floor Balcony" bristles with an almost neo-classical elegance) where Blue October sets itself a cut above its post-grunge contenders.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Staind meets Paul Simon
    Well, everyone is reminded of 80's new wave . . . hmmmmm. I actually find a kinship between Blue October and Simon and Garfunkel. Blue October's acoustic efforts like "18th Floor Balcony" remind me of the work of Paul Simon. Also, the overlapping harmonies on "Into the Ocean". . . very much like the stylings of Simon and Garfunkel. Likewise, the magnificent lyrics and personal introspection in the songs. "Hate Me" is a masterpiece as it remains commercially successful while not betraying the essence of the band. I found only one song on the album to be strangely out of place and that is "Drilled a Wire through My Cheek". It was a bit loud and angsty . . . reminded me too much of Staind. Great album.

    This is a well composed CD and a remarkable band.I had never heard of them until recently (Sept 2006) on the radio.

    Ok, like millions of other music fans, I heard "Hate Me" and "loved it". So I went out and bought the CD, and was pleasantly surprised and impressed. It's a great album! I'm surprised this band isn't way more popular. This is one of those CDs which could easily spawn many singles-there are some really great, catchy tunes here. There is something for everyone: some of the songs are harder than others, others are more pop, but they are all really quite good. Highly recommended! ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice album from a very nice guy
    This review contains nothing new from what you have already read from the other customers who have heard, and own this particular album. This is straight up country music album, as what a country album should be. I bought this album mainly because I was blown away by the song "Your Man". Although the songs here are strong, besides that smash hit "Your Man", highlights of this record are: Lord Have Mercy on a Country Boy, Way Down South, and Gravity. Why I didn't give this album a full 5 star is there are some songs that I didn't particularly enjoy: "No Rush" is a drag, too slow for my liking therefore I think it's entitled appropriately and "White Noise" is an okay song, I just never was a fan of Jon Anderson. Overall, Josh's second release is worth the listen. Enjoy!

    5-0 out of 5 stars blown away
    At work, I only needed the traffic report before hitting the hiway, and found it on some country station. I normally do not listen to country, being a classical music lover. Whilst listening, this singer came on with the 'your man' song, and I found myself amazed at this voice. Days to follow I looked forward to the traffic report, and to hopefully hear this voice again. They played another song 'will you go with me' by this singer, and his name was mentioned after, and so in knowing his name, I found his albums on amazon. Well now I can say I definately am a country fan, and am ordering his music. Am very impressed and happy for finding thisopen door into a beautiful sector of music that I haven't explored before.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Not a perfect album, but good
    From the first time I heard "Would you go with me" I loved that song. (The video is good, too.) The banjo and mandolin combine so beautifully that the tune sticks in your head and heart.I am not a big country fan to begin with, but Turner's voice was so good I figured I'd buy the album.

    Editorial Review

    John Mayer's big-label debut was a multiplatinum breakthrough success whose sensual anthem "Your Body Is a Wonderland" scored him an unlikely Grammy for Best Pop Vocal. That out-of-the-box succes--and more than a few critics grousing that Mayer's muse was cloned from Dave Matthews--primed him for the typical sophomore slump. Instead, Mayer delivers an album whose tone and title suggests a gentle, tongue-in-cheek rebuke to his naysayers. Propelled by the subtle ambitions of an expanded pop-jazz framework (largely courtesy of Sheryl Crow/No Doubt/Jellyfish producer Jack Joseph Puig), Mayer's breathy vocal tack now suggests a detached, conflicted, and significantly less precious incarnation of Michael Franks. But, the way he weds fluid pop hooks to lyrical concerns whose self-obsessions are undercut by telling dollops of self-deprecation from the my-spirit's-too-big/smart-for-my-body laments of "Clarity," the upbeat single "Bigger Than My Body," and the bluesy plea "Come Back to Bed" to the cautionary, melodically-rich "Daughters" and even the antimaterialist agitprop of "Something's Missing should clearly draw in listeners."

    5-0 out of 5 stars He Ain't Heavy...
    Up until getting Continuum and listening to it twenty times, Heavier Things remained in my head as my all time favorite JM CD.Everyone loves Room for Squares and we all got introduced to John through that one, and everyone loved it immediately.But the first time I listened to Heavier Things, I thought, "not quite as good as Squares."The second time I listened to it, I thought, "hey this is pretty damn good."Then I started listening to it out on my daily walks, and the more I listened to it, the more I thought it was amazing.I liked John after Squares, but it was listening to Heavier Things over and over that really made me fall madly in love with him.Made me want to see him in concert, and again... Made me buy Try! and Any Given Thursday (DVD and CD, both great), and Continuum, and devour them and play them at home, in the car, etc. etc.I hope that John will keep putting out new stuff for a long, long time.I can't can't can't get enough of his music.He ain't bad to look at either!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Holds up to Squares....
    John Mayer is a true musician in a time of mindless pop & annoying celebrity singer wannabees. I had to listen to Heavier Things a couple times before I appreciated the more subtle and mature tone. That may be the reason why some were disappointed. It lacks the "hooks" and some of the "wit" of Squares but has an abundance of true musicianship, emotion and maturity. For me the big hits of Room for Squares (No Such Thing & Your Body is a Wonderland) have worn a bit thin over time. There are no such tracks on Heavier. I've listened countless times & none have gotten old for me. Heavier is a beginning to end listen. No tracks need be skipped.
    4-0 out of 5 stars John Mayer: New to me.
    Though John Mayer is new to me, I have always liked the 'soft rock' genre. I got drawn in by the easy rock guitar selections, (especially 'Clarity') and listening to the lyrics came later.

    The Wreckers are Grammy-winning songstress Michelle Branch and friend/journeywoman Nashville singer-songwriter Jessica Harp, a team whose solid craftsmanship and soaring, airtight harmonies often lift their hook-smart contemporary country stylings above what's too often mere fizzy, pop-crossover formula. They may have entered the public consciousness via the wide exposure of "Good Kind" on the primetime soap opera Read more

    This is a great country/pop blend of music.It's 1 of my favorite cd's ever since I bought it.I love their vocal blends.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Michelle Branch goes Country
    I am a longtime fan of Michelle Branch and of both her previous albums--Spirit Room and Hotel Paper.When I heard she had joined up with another female singer and started a duo, I was interested, though somewhat dismayed by the delay of their album release.When I finally learned that it came out, I balked to learn that it was classified as Country.After all, I am not a Country fan, and greatly preferred the somewhat pop/rock turning towards alternative feel of Branch's first two CDs.But after listening to samples of songs on Amazon and iTunes, I decided to give the CD a shot anyway--Michelle Branch, to this day, remains the only singer I have enough confidence in my enjoying her music that I would buy one of her albums entirely on blind faith.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Pretty and Talented
    It seems like just yesterday that Michelle Branch delivered to us a little bit of this and a little bit of that with Santana.Now, a few hits and a few years later we find her turning her back on the modern/alternative rock radio stations that were rumored to be a thorn in her side.Michelle teams up with Jessica Harp to deliver an Alt-Country cd that, at times, sounds like Sheryl Crow meets the Dixie Chicks. I've been hearing the first single Leave The Pieces streaming out of sound systems in just about every type of retail setting possible.I'd say that "pretty" little Michelle & Jessica will be making a "wreck" out of the charts for quite some time.The bottom line: mirror & ear friendly cd. ;) ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars its ok, but its not the best
    its not bad but its not the best.i used to love 30 seconds to mars when their second cd came out, but by the time i had listened to it a couple of times i was awfully tired of jared leto being so loud on the songs' choruses.he just gets so monotonous.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Absent the space odessy this album still rocks.
    When 30stm released their debut album I immediately fell in love with it. Call me a dork but I loved all the crazy lyrics about the life on Mars and being on Jupiter.
    5-0 out of 5 stars best band out there today!
    i listened to the first album n thought that it was a good sound coming from a band who has a movie star for a lead singer.... but this album changed my entire perspective on 30 seconds to mars..... THEY R F'N SICK ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars His best record
    One song in particular, JOHN WAYNE GACY JR, is startling.The first few times I played the CD, without really listening to the lyrics, I heard it as a love song, due to the gorgeous minor-key melody, then only realized later what it was about. The song is eerily beautiful, and at the same time, stunningly creepy, about the love a serial killer feels for his victims."He dressed up like a clown for them."I wasn't aware that pop music could do something as complex as this, until Stevens did so.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Recycled goods
    Having listened to Steven's previous albums, Greetings from Michigan and Seven Swans countless times, I cannot help but to notice the amount of regurgitation on this album.Stevens blatantly rips off his own music.I consider Michigan to be Sufjan's masterpiece.Do yourself a favor and start there.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Rewards with time and patience.
    Ok where to begin. I am some what astonished by the few reviews I have read for this album that have been negative (i.e. 2 stars or lower). Not because "oh these people are idiots, or this music is just to much for them" but precisely the opposite reason. There were a few reviews that were 2 stars or lower from people who wrote somewhat intelligent and thoughtful comments. My advice to these people is to just give this some time to sink in. I know that it is not above these people, and If they give it a few extra listens it will eventually catch them.

    One of the best rock albums that I own. Just as good as We Are Not Alone and Saturate... probably even better.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Fear Phobia...
    As a big fan of BB's first two albums, I found this one to be a little dissapointing.All of the songs sort of blend together in an un-exciting way.There are about 3 songs that I really enjoy on the album, and that is only because they had to grow on me after repetitive play.I think perhaps they have matured in the wrong direction, or not at all.

    3-0 out of 5 stars BB's PHOBIA : Should You Buy?
    Breaking Benjamin in definately one of my top 10 bands of all times but I will never give a band bias for any reason .... With that being said.... Phobia to me seems like Breaking Benjamin tried too hard to compete with themselves.Songs like "So Cold", "Follow Me", "Break My Fall", and "Polyamorous" (from a different CD) gave Breaking Benjamin the flare that is oh so good. Little can be done to match their past music ... and yet they tried. They tried to completely change the guitar solos, vocals, beats, harmonics, and feel of each song so that their music would be as new and original as ever. I personally think they tried to hard but some people enjoy it. "Evil Angel"? nothing special...thats all I can say. "Had Enough"? Edgy and Upbeat, uses Ben's vocals at their best. In all its a descent song, I like it. "You Fight Me"? That exact point I was talking about earlier ... Tried desperately to be original and its just not Breaking Benjamin ...Also has some girly sounding vocals ... DOnt like it. Now, best for last."Diary of Jane"? Excellent song .. In my honest opinion, this is the only song on the entire CD that can compete with their old music. Different beat that works, edgy music and vocals that arent over the edge. Lyrics really dont do anything for me but I adore this song's feel and Diary of Jane is in my top 4 BB songs.

    There is no question when I tell you that Amy rocks out loud live! She definately knows how to work the crowd. During her performance, she and the rest of the band do a KoRn cover of "Thoughtless" (which I LOVE) and also perform two other songs not found on the U.S. version of 'Fallen' including Breathe No More (from Elektra soundtrack) and Farther Away (from the Bring Me to Life Single and/or Jap. version of Fallen) Of course, any true Ev fan would already know all of that info. The dvd includes the entire live performance, all the music vids from Fallen, and some behind the scenes footage of the whole band. (Some of it is really funny) A great buy. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars An impressive cohesive whole
    With her flaming red hair and imposing good looks, Neko Case strikes an impressive pose, but that's nothing compared to the development of her singing and songwriting over the past few years. This album bathes her strong voice with echoing reverb, making her tales of love and loss seem even more apocalyptic. Case mixes country, folk and pop with an unusual deftness that sets her apart from the veritable army of female singer songwriters on todays music scene, and with backup from the likes of Calexico, one of the finest roots rock groups around, the music meshes very well with the lyrics.
    5-0 out of 5 stars wonderful stuff..
    "Alt-country" would indeed be a limiting description,none-the-less an accurate point of reference,as this artist is obviously drawing from past Country musicians.But make no mistake,this is not a tired retread thru the same-old same-old but rather an exceptional modern piece of music.I'm usually more inclined towards the Heavy than the twangy,but this is just so well written and catchy with a distinct melancholic cloud hanging over the proceedings,and this woman can SING.One of the few recent musicians that deserve that designation!

    5-0 out of 5 stars "Country Noir" indeed - excellent purchase
    After having this recommended to me as a hard-to-categorize album, I was lucky enough to stumble into a copy the next day.The beautifully produced, played, sung, and especially well written songs on this album are haunting and catchy at the same time.The album comes in at just about 35 mintues, which is perfect for a quiet listen while reading or driving around.
