Soul Asylum Featuring the New Single, Gravity

Biography

It's been six years since Soul Asylum has issued a new album. But as evidenced by the arrival of 'Delayed Reaction' (the group's first release for 429 Records), the wait was most certainly worth it. Fans will be happy to discover the group's trademark ragged-but-right sound is still very much in tact, and that they've turned back the clock to the good old days ...

I could listen to it all day long!

The songs are stylistically different enough from one another that you don't fall into a lull of them sounding alike, while all still sounding like Soul Asylum.

Dear Music Appreciators,

I'm sure the faithful fans have been there all along, but personally I haven't thought much about Soul Asylum since Clinton's first year in office, when nobody really had a cell phone or an internet connection and a grungey Seattle sound ruled the charts. I was in eighth grade, and I listened over and over to a cassette copy of Grave Dancers Union I'd taped off my older brother's CD. I remember thinking that this was an awesome band. Now I've got a wife and some kids, a mortgage and a bald spot, and here comes Soul Asylum again - they're still around - but are they still awesome?

Well, sort of.

And that's okay. I'm not as awesome as I was in 1993 anymore either.

Opener ( and "hit single") "Gravity" is pleasant enough but kind of sounds like a self-conscious effort at "we can still write a catchy song that rocks" and lines like "for every question there are answers to spare" just don't do much to peak my interest.

"Into the Light (Breaking Horses)" is bouncy, cheerful pop and sounds like something that might play in the background of a "great day" type montage in a buddy movie, something like the sequel to DUMB AND DUMBER (if that ever gets made).

By the third track "The Streets," things start to heat up a bit and we get kind of an early-Springsteen flavored punk rocker.

Speaking of punk rockers, there's a song called "Let's All Kill Each Other,": which is followed, interestingly, by a jazzy, lounge lizard track "Cruel Intentions" that sounds like Norah Jones is gonna chime in any minute as a duet partner - and if it was Dave Grohl or Ryan Adams maybe she would - but Dave Pirner, to his credit, flies solo on this one.

Soul Asylum are back with their first album in 6 years, and it's a good one. A lot has been made in regards to the fact that several of these songs have already been released (albeit different recordings), played live, or are out-takes from previous efforts. My take - who cares!? I welcome a studio version of "I Should've Stayed In Bed Today", which was previously only issued as a live song. An alternate version of "By the Way" was the b-side of Runaway Train. It's a song that always felt like it should have been on an album, and now it finally is. As far as people who complain that they've already heard some of these songs live - what do you expect!? Soul Asylum takes a LONG time in between albums, so it's only logical to assume that if you see them live in between albums that you're going to hear new songs which aren't yet released....

The album opens with the single "Gravity". It's a decent straight-forward track, with some parts a little reminiscent of "and The Horse They Rode In On", but the album only gets better from there. "Into the Light" is a poppy little number, and "The Streets" is so catchy it will be stuck in your head immediately. The new recording of "By the Way" is a nice inclusion; who cares if fans have heard an alternate version 20 years ago? It's a sweet song with clever word play, and fits nicely on the album. "Pipe Dream" is a fairly straight-forward tune, and the tongue-in-cheek "Let's All Kill Each Other" is an amusing number with a good sing along chorus. The album then shifts gears by introducing a jazzy ballad called "Cruel Intentions". Initially this song did nothing for me, but after a few listens it quickly grew on me and is a nice change in pace.

As a long time fan of Soul Asylum, I've been completely loving to hear this mix of new and old. Watching them play live so often, you see how much fun these guys have and how genuine their love of playing is. This album is such a great mixture of their vast talents. I've always loved Soul Asylum's versatility and this album is a lovely reminder of it. It makes me smile :)

I am a long-time fan of Soul Asylum and fell hard in love with them not when I heard "Runaway Train" but instead when I heard the more punk songs like "Cartoon" and "Can't Even Tell". I see the Black Gold album a definitive collection of who Soul Asylum is. If you agree with that statement, then you'll probably not be in love with this album. This is quite different. Don't get me wrong, it is good; but it is "The Silver Lining" good and I think it falls away from their roots even more so than that album did. If you are a die-hard fan of Soul Asylum like me, go ahead and get it and you'll enjoy it well enough; but if you just want to hear more of their "Misery" or "Just like Anyone" days, this is not the album for you.

I have most of Soul Asylums CD Library, and although this seems a little weak at first, it starts to grow on you. Give it a listen...Dave Pirner and the boys!

Format: MP3 Music
2012 has been a good band for bands who first reached popularity in the 1990's. Everclear's INVISIBLE STARS and Lit's THE VIEW FROM THE BOTTOM were both solid entries; both bands feel as if they are reinvigorated. Instead of trying to stay relevant to today's market of electronic pop, Everclear and Lit wrote albums that stayed true to their 90's alternative rock roots. Soul Asylum's DELAYED REACTION follows this trend -- it's a solid album that showcases the band doing what they do best: writing consistent and honest alternative pop-rock. The band's work hasn't been declining in quality though; 2006's previous SILVER LINING was another great record for Soul Asylum. Some of these songs have been around for a while, some have been played live already in concert, and some are outtakes from other records. DELAYED REACTION offers the band a chance to repolish these songs and breathe new life into them, and that's exactly what they do.

With crisp production, Soul Asylum's music is presented here as clear as ever. Dave Pirner's voice sounds just as youthful as it ever has, and the instrumentation on DELAYED REACTION doesn't sound like it comes from a band with a 30+ year career. The album begins with the excellent "Gravity." It's the lead single promoting the album, and its opening moments spend no time cutting to the chase -- it immediately begins with distorted guitars and pounding drums. "By the Way" finds the band slowing down, but to great effect.
