Product Description

Far From Over by Edwin McCain

This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Amazon.com

Edwin McCain developed a loyal following the day he stepped out on the stage back in 1991, supporting pals Hootie & the Blowfish on their debut tour and giving his Southern brethren a run for their ticket money. McCain has since developed a strong following for his own brand of unvarnished heartland rock. With his fourth album, the South Carolina native returns to the familiar landscape of Misguided Roses and Messenger, with his sublimely infectious melodies and anthemic choruses inhabiting the territory once claimed by the Doobie Brothers and Lee Michaels in the '70s. While first hailed as an acoustic balladeer, McCain and his band have expanded their parameters, ably careening from genre to genre with gusto. They are equally at home whipping up some thunder on a barn burner such as "Get Out of This Town" as they are getting sentimental with "Write Me a Song" and the graceful "Hearts Fall," both of which feature vocals by McCain pal Shawn Colvin. This latest offering is less polished than earlier works, perhaps due to the fact that it was coproduced by the band and Neil Young engineer Greg Archilla. But that roughhewn quality adds an emotional honesty and depth to the songs. --Jaan Uhelszki

Customer Reviews

This CD pulls from several genre's - and truly exhibits the talent of EMB.
Karen G
I have always been a big fan of Edwin McCain and ran out to grab the new CD when it hit the shelves.
Susan
The songs are forgettable, and there are some that I just plain don't like.

As a long-time Edwin McCain fan, I was really looking forward to this release, and was definitely not disappointed! Edwin & company have put out a smashing album! Heavier on the electric guitars, perhaps, than past albums, the energy here is closer to the vibe of their amazing live shows. This cd has a bit of everything--sweet ballads like "Hearts Fall", cynical humor on "Radio Star", the heart-on-your-sleeve emotion of "Letter to my Mother" and the infectious "sing along at the top of your lungs" songs like the title track "Far From Over" and "Sun Will Rise" (I cannot get these songs out of my head!). This is a fabulous, must-own cd--"far from over" is the perfect description for this band's career; they are absolutely amazing!

it's listenable. something that you can put in the cd player and listen all the way through without having to skip songs that aren't as good. catchy, too. ever since i bought it, "hearts fall" and "write me a song" get stuck in my head(that's not a bad thing).
however, i have two other edwin mccain cds, Messenger and Misguided Roses, both of which i love. Far From Over is simply missing some rich quality the previous two possess. The song on the new album, "write me a song", is just beautiful, though. overall, i strongly recommend that any edwin fan buy this cd. or if you're just looking for something different than everyday pop radio, Far From Over is extremely refreshing.

A life-long James Taylor fan, I discovered Edwin McCain when for the second time my ears perked up and I thought "Who is that wonderful voice?" The first time was "I'll Be" and then "I Could Not Ask For More". This album offers every facet of Edwin and the band. The ballads are here, along with the blues, some rockin'-drivin'-with-the-top-down tunes and best of all ~ Edwin's sincere, fun loving personality shining through. To me, this is Edwin and the band, as they are in concert; and I've never seen a better live show. A magical blend of music, with accent on the sax, this one will take a permanant place in your CD changer!

Being a long-time Edwin fan, I got my hands on this CD as soon as I could once it came out. It's totally amazing. I was lucky enough to hear most of these new songs performed live before the disc came out, so I already knew it was great. No one who buys this, provided they're true music fans, will be disappointed. Edwin and the guys in the band are talented musicians, and the lyrics will speak to everyone in different situations. Check this stuff out, and if you get a chance, go out and see these guys live.

This has to be his best CD since Honor Among Thieves. It is good to see songs like "Get Out of this Town" which get back to the style of some songs on Honor Among Thieves. If you like ballads, "Hearts Fall" and "Write Me a Song" are perfect emotional notes. There are songs here for every possible mood. He even showed some well-placed humor on "Radio Star" as he states his case on some of the cookie-cutter music today. This is not cookie-cutter. Top to Bottom is it a very well-produced album. Where else can you find a mix of so many different music styles, Edwin is truly of the best songwriters of recent memory. I recommend this CD to everyone and it makes a great driving disc as well.

After the well-produced and great album "Messenger", Edwin and the boys apparently decided they could produce themselves. While this album is a little rougher than Misguided Roses or Messenger, it rocks with a sincere and emotional touch. Edwin McCain uses the help of Shawn Colvin on two tracks, and the duo works great. This song has a lot of standout tracks, including the title track, "Hearts Fall", "Write Me A Song", and "Get Out Of This Town." If you're looking for one of the best southern rock albums, check out a band that is, we hope, "Far From Over."

This is one of Edwin's best Cd's yet. Although it takes a little getting used to - Edwin drives home another winner.
You will not want to pass by this CD. I can tell it will be a CD that I come back to years from now and rediscover over and over.
Enjoy!

I am one of Edwin's biggest fans, and his music has greatly inspired my own songwriting. I know McCain, and this just isn't classic McCain.
What became of the original, fresh, and artistic sound of Honor Among Thieves? This album reads like a mix between pressure from the record company and leftovers from other albums. It should have been titled "B sides - The Leftovers".
Frankly, Edwin seems to be going downhill fast with this album, declining from A+, A, and A- for his previous three CDs to a B- for this one. The songs are forgettable, and there are some that I just plain don't like. And I LOVE Edwin McCain music. What was he thinking with "Get Out Of This Town" and "Radio Star"? Maybe they're statements about something, but the melodies aren't good. "Radio Star" sounds like a TV commercial jingle. "Write Me A Song" starts good, but the chorus could have been much stronger.
Only track 11 sounds anything like his earlier work, and it's my favorite on the album for that reason. Otherwise, this album is a Take It Or Leave It in my book. Too bad.
