The Working Title is one of those band which will likely explode over the coming months. This is their first full length album, and it is a success. There is a great diversity of tracks which showcases Joel and the band's range. There is no one extraordinary track, but instead nearly every track is great. My favorite tracks include Weigh Me Down, Crash, and Under the Ground. This album has been in the works for a long time and it was worth the wait.

Although this is a great album, you really need to see them live. They have amazing energy and a kind of passion for their music you can rarely find. They are currently on tour with the goo goo dolls and counting crows which I'm sure will be good, but if you can see them in a smaller more intimate venue you'll be blown away. Earlier this year they played together with Augustana (another great new band) making for perhaps the best show I've ever been to.

i bought this on the release date as well. this band's songwriting and maturity is really impressive. i would have to say my favorites are this is not glorious, the crash, and there is none. the disc sounds great and some production duty was handled by dave bryson (counting crows) definitely get this. one of the year's best.

I first heard The Working Title live last summer when they were an opening act. They weren't bad or anything but I wasn't overly impressed and only one song in their set (under the ground) caught my attention. I loved it, downloaded it and neglected the rest of the album, that is until recently. Bored and searching for new music I found this for exceptionally cheap and thought why not. I'm so happy I took the chance because I really like it! I enjoyed the entire thing on the first listen. "About face", the first track is good, but short. The next track, "nothing less radiant", really launches it and is a great song. "P.S." is even better. "This is not glorious" is decent, not one of my favorites, but still a wonderful listen. "Under the Ground" as I mentioned above was the 1st song I fell in love with. What can I say, it just spoke to me. It is still tied for my favorite. "The crash" is another fantastic song. And now for "something she said", this in my opinion is the absolute best song on the album! It is beautiful, sad and about letting go. After "something she said" the next three songs (weigh me down, never run again, and the mary getaway) are all fabulous. "Blind" is alright, not bad just not one I listen to often, probably my least favorite. "There is none" is my third favorite I would have to say. To me it's about frustration. "We are enslaved" is yet another enjoyable tune. This may be completely random but something about the sound of the chorus reminds me of that Seal song kiss from a rose...I don't know. The last song "turbulence" also contains a hidden track, both of which are nice and finish off the album on a good note. In summary, there is something about the album that I find comforting, honest, simple and true. Check it out if your interested. Getting it used is a steal!

I went to see the Goo Goo Dolls back in mid July of 2006. I had no idea this band was opening for them. When they took the stage, I hardly noticed. But then something happened. They played "The Crash," and it got my attention. For the 5 or 6 songs they played, I was on the edge of my seat, transfixed. Who was this band? Who was this bare-footed lead singer with an incredibly unique vocal palette?

I went to that show with my ex-girlfriend, and even though we went to see the Goo Goo Dolls, for weeks, I wouldn't shut up about "that band that opened for them." A month later, she bought me About Face for my birthday.

I don't even know how to begin describing how incredible this album is. How it grows on you. How you think "Weigh Me Down," "The Crash" and "Nothing Less Radiant" are the meat of this album, and then you listen to the second half of the disc and "We Are Enslaved," "Under the Ground" and "Blind" knock you flat on your back. How someone can sing the lyrics, "I lost everything to one boy who said he was mine; he said he'd hold me forever" and it NOT sound cheesy. How great it feels to make a copy of this CD and give it to a friend who has no idea who The Working Title are and to hear back from them a couple weeks later that it's one of the best albums they've ever listened to.

Read no further. Just buy this album.
