Editorial Reviews

O.A.R. has come to stand for authentic Rock music that reflects the collective triumphs and tragedies we all experience is this world: Real people making real music that resounds deeply with their fans. The songs on this album showcase every facet of the band and it's musical tastes which led to calling the album 'All Sides'. The radio friendly first single, 'Shattered', produced by Matt Wallace (Maroon 5), with additional production by Rob Cavallo (Green Day) lands at radio Mid June as the band kicks off their three month long 'All Sides' Summer Tour.

Customer Reviews

Sure, a couple of duds but in general a very good disc.

It's obvious that their sound has completely changed...completely....and if you don't recognize that, you haven't been listening to them for very long.

I can't honestly sit here and say "Yeah man, 10 years ago I was starting high school, smoking pot, and rocking out to some high school kids from Rockville, Maryland in this band called O.A.R." It took a while before I truly got turned onto O.A.R. When that happened they sort of turned into crack for me. I couldn't get enough. I spanned the entire catalog, all the way back to The Wanderer till Stories of a Stranger. I read that lead singer Marc Roberge went on a cross-country drive with his wife and dogs before this album was completed. The album title, " All Sides," is a fair and pretty accurate description of what to expect on this album. From the beginning till the end of the album I feel that all aspects of O.A.R.'s creativity and brilliance is delivered.
I truly hope people don't expect the O.A.R. from The Wanderer or Risen or any of the great older albums. That was ten years ago and the guys in O.A.R. are pushing close to 30 years old. Yet, what I find when listening to this album is a matured, progressive, and still fun and catchy band playing music they love and writing introspective and meaningful lyrics.
The first radio single off of "All Sides" is "Shattered (Turn the Car Around). It's a piano-laden, truly radio-friendly pop song, but I really find it hard not to sing along. I was slightly concerned with the first three songs being released early because I did not hear any of the traditional saxophone that makes O.A.R. great. Yet, I was not to be let down, as "Whatever Happened" starts in with a conga type intro soon to be followed by the catchy soulful saxophone of Jerry DePizzo.
With this release O.A.R. spans a lot of genres of music.

I agree with some of the other reviews here in that this is a dramatically different sound for OAR. I find it entertaining and enjoyable, though. Maybe they want to break through on more of a commercial level as this album has a much more pop-sounding feel to it. Or maybe they just want to expand their horizons with something a little different. Either way, I have no problem with it. I see some parallels between this move and when REM came out with Document after being a "college radio" band for several years.

Some fans were upset with this, but REM kept their own sound and integrity through it all (and still has, check out their recent release, Accelerate, for the awesome proof) ... and I expect OAR will, too. You cannot fault a band for exploring their creativity. As a fan and admirer of OAR's immense talent and gifts, I wish them all the best with this release.

What we have here is the last new from OAR.
Many people consider this a to commerial album with too many radio friendly songs.
There is indeed a little less reggae and jam but through the songs you hear what they made in the past.
They have grown and i realy like this album, i rate it a 8 because of the quality songs and the great production.

MY FAVES

The first song THIS TIME has a really catchy melodie and you will notice that you've been whisteling this tune for days.
SHATTERED is a great lead singel, with again a sticky melodie.
WHAT IS MINE has that groovy reggae feel to it, feels like a hot summer day.
ONE DAY is a really great, great feelings in the voice and lov the chorus of the song.
The rest of the songs are also good, but these were my favorites.

O.A.R. is a band that should be heard live. As a result, any studio album is sure to disappoint. This album is no different. But, overall this album delivers something for every type of listener.

The first single "Shattered" has a piano ostinato that is unusual for the band. Yep, it's "pop"-ish and clear designed for the radio audience. It's a fun song though. And, knowing O.A.R., they will have a great twist on it when you hear it live.

"This Town" is something that ESPN listeners have been hearing a lot already. I'm not too excited by this rather mundane crowd suck up piece.

Those O.A.R. fans that appreciate the "Untitled", "About Mr. Brown" or "52-50" or something more obscure still can find great gems on this album. "War Song," which despite its name is not a political commentary, is one of the best All Sides has to offer. "Dinner Last Night" is another great song for the hard core fan.

Overall, the album is great. The tracks are exciting for fans looking for something else to round out the concert tour set list. After all, there is only so many times you can hear the band open with "Wonderful Day" and close with the triad of "City on Down," "That was a Crazy Game of Poker" and "Love and Memories."

EDIT: Alright, it's been a few weeks since I wrote this review, and I've listened to the album many more times. After all that, I've decided that this is probably one of the best (if not the best) studio album ever released by O.A.R. The songs are all over the place (hence the All Sides moniker) in terms of style. It's a well-rounded release with a few pop-type songs and a few good jam numbers as well. Amazon wouldn't let me change, but I'd re-review this 5-star.
