Editorial Reviews

The first new project from former members of The Anniversary, Change of Living is an inspired set of songs with a vintage American rock sound. Its heart lies in classic blues-rock like Beggars Banquet-era Stones and classic country-rock like Neil Young. Josh's plaintive story-songs and dusty vocals (beautifully complemented by Heidi's sweet harmonies) are the sepia-toned picture of rustic Americana. A powerful debut from what is sure to be one of next great American bands.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not on par with my expectations November 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have to admit, I was expecting a lot out of these guys. I discovered their last reincarnation, The Anniversary, just before their album 'Your Majesty' was released, and was an instant fan. I was upset when they broke up, but was happy to see the immediate formation of the Holy Ghosts, which became the Only Children. The album finally arrived (thanks Glurp!) and here I am listening to something that only slightly delivers. There are some good tunes - 'West Virginia', 'Lonesome Road', and the raw 'Girl With the Golden Hair' are all very good, and a few others are borderline. And their use of the sitar is cool.

But if you are looking for the same quality as Anniversary, you probably won't like this. It's more of a hick blues band (the facial hair and apparent lack of clean clothes from photos of them while recording should have clued me in). Sorry to sound like I'm coming down so hard on the band - they are definitely a talented bunch, and I am a big fan of Josh Berwanger's writing. I was just expecting something a bit more polished. Guess they were just going for a different vibe. Still, I am looking forward to seeing them live next time they're out my way.

5.0 out of 5 stars take a deep breath November 14, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The Only Children are one of the best bands to come out in 2004. Now if your emo, which hopefully you're not, you won't like it. but, if you're looking for some quality rock n roll sound, check it out. if you like the anniversary(your majesty,split e.p.), wilco, niel young, or even the brian jonestown massacre, you will fall in love with this record. try to see em!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad September 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The music is decent, but not outstanding. Josh Berwanger [vocals, guitar, songwriter] has stated that he's bored with rock music because it's so "one-dimensional," and punk rock because it's "not even one-dimensional," but considering how dramatically his styles changes from record to record, this album feels a bit like that poseur kid we all know who tries on a new style every other month and each time insists he's legit. It seems a bit pretentious to write songs about living in/growing up in southern states you don't actually live in, and writing lyrics to sound like a 1920's redneck when you're actually not. The album has a bit of a caricatured, hipster-ish feel in this regard.
But the music is okay, so if you like rootsy, faux-country rock, pick it up.
