Remember the days when good rock was part of popular music. Things have changed a lot since the early and mid 90's, for the worse. Remember when bands like Candlebox, Live, Pearl Jam, Better Than Ezra, Counting Crows, Collective Soul, etc. ruled the airwaves. Unfortunately, while many of these bands are now making just as good if not better records today, they are now considered as the bands "that used to be good". Enough complaining, now onto the review of this CD.
Candlebox's self-titled debut starts off with the thunderous drumbeats of "Don't You" to get the listener ready for a wonderful ride through the slow to fast, soft to loud songs that encompass Kevin Martin's raw, spine tingling vocals along with Peter Klett's brilliant and distinct guitar work. Next is "Change", which is a great break-up song (from personal experience), followed by the anti-drug anthem "You". "Far-behind" is a classic whose lyrics are many times taken for granted. "Arrow" is a flat out rocker with heavy guitars. "Rain", all 6:58 min, shows the bands musical range, that includes a funky-groove complimented by Martin's singing style and some screeching guitar solos. The CD wraps up perfectly with two amazing acoustic songs, "Cover Me" and "He Calls Home". "Cover Me" starts off with a great acoustic riff and then totally explodes into the chorus. "He Calls Home" is a bit softer with a circling chorus. Just when you think the song is over, Kevin Martin's voice soars for one more minute to wrap up the album.
Oh Yeah, did I mention that I highly recommend this CD to everyone, especially those kids nowadays who think 3 Doors Down is rock music and that Fred Durst is a genious.

Candlebox's self-titled debut album is really great. A few listens and you'll be hooked - but there are 2 catches: one, you have to have an open mind about what rock music can and should be; and two, you have to be at least mildly intrigued by and interested in blues rock. Bcuz that's what Candlebox is, essentially. They're a kind of modern blues-rock, mixed with hard rock. Forget people who say that Candlebox is "grunge" - they really aren't. The only reason they're labeled as such is bcuz they were based outta Seattle (although I don't think any of the 4 original members were even initially from there). But, if you listen to any of their 3 albums, you'll realize that Candlebox is nothing like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, A-in-C, or any other rock group smacked with the grunge label. No, Candlebox is very different, very unique, and very good! Come on, try some of their songs. After you get used to their style, you'll definitely fall in love with (or at least be impressed by) such gems as "You", "Far Behind", "Rain", "Cover Me", and "He Calls Home", to name a few. And if you let it, Kevin Martin's voice will send pleasant chills up and down your spine! :) So onward, my rock music friends and fans: try Candlebox. And if you find you like them, by all means go on to "Lucy" and "Happy Pills". But before you do so, read my other reviews for tips! ;)
(By the way, if you're curious, the only reason why this album doesn't get 5 stars is bcuz - in my humble opinion - "Happy Pills" is a better album and thus much more worthy of the complete honor.)

There are few albums that hold ground that are not deemed worthy by the masses...so I ask myself: Why are people reviewing the album (when will that moniker die once and for all) after 11 years? It holds true...sure there are bits that mimic the sound at the time. Of course one can hear the influences of Pearl Jam and Sound Garden but can you really say they copped them? Grunge was here and gone because it was labeled, commercialized and classified. Once I saw Team Spirit on MTV I knew it would be gone before it was here...But...listen to some alternative bands from the 90s to today...little grungy no?

Again, great music lasts the test of time. This one...from beginning to end still provokes goose bumps and I bet you can pass it off on your 14 year old son as a new...very cool...alternative band. Take it for a spin with no prejudices, if you like rock it will do for you as it did for me.

Candlebox made it's mark on the history of alternative music of the 1990's, then faded away. While they had enough potential to grab the attention of the public, and a major record label, they had little staying power at a time when other bands like them flooded the market. Soul Asylum, Gin Blossums, Blind Melon, all came to the same ending."You", "Cover Me", "Far Behind" and "Change" were the highlights of this recording, and they are the songs that speak for the band. Unfortunately, they had very little in the way of versitility and imagination, and pretty much speak for the band's entire career. All their eggs are here in this one basket.If you like Candlebox, you might not agree with me. But the general record buying public spoke loudly when "Lucy", Candlebox's sophmore CD, went straight to the bargain bins. If you want the best of what represents Candlebox, you are best to stick to this CD and leave it at that.
