This is one of my favourite albums of all time.
Wendy K. Dunn
Their music never gets old, every time they put out a new album it has something entirely different from the last album.
Sianne Martin
Jim's voice is softer and suited to ballads and love songs.

"Five Days In July" apparently took its name from the length of time it took to record -- which considering the quality of this album is bound to make a lot of other bands tear their hair. It sounds a little more country than earlier efforts, but also contains a lot of moments that are beautiful in their uncategorizability.
This album also has the distinction of containing not one but TWO love-gone-right songs by Jim Cuddy, the cheerful man who so often writes about having your heart ripped out. Mind you, "Five Days In May" is so introspective-sounding and its chord progressions are so close to being eerie that I heard it more than once before I realized it had a happy ending. "Head Over Heels," on the other hand, is a purely joyful tune about reunion with the one you love. These two songs also contain two of my favourite Blue Rodeo lyrics: from "Five Days," the almost throwaway "oh, she loved the lines around his mouth" (which to me sounds like growing to love someone more as you grow older together); from "Head Over Heels" the assertion "I'm as steady as rain/ Nothing ever changes in my heart." (I'm a transplanted Maritimer so the simile works for me!)
Greg Keelor's stuff on this record is dominated by the moody, introspective material like "Know Where You Go/ Tell Me Your Dream" and benefits from Sarah McLachlan's vocal contributions. The erstwhile "rocker" of the band is clearly not someone you can pigeonhole.

Blue Rodeo, out of Canada where they are rightfully GODS, continues to fly under the US radar...what a shame, especially when one stacks Blue Rodeo against lesser talents. "5 Days In July" is the gemstone of this richly talented group. Combining elements of The Eagles, The Byrds, Poco, The Flying Burrito Brothers,twinges of psychedellic memories, 60's style chord work *which comes off VERY nice* and at times, vocal harmonies which bring a sweet hint of The Everly Brothers, this group, which can rock with the best or slow it down to a nice mellow, has a sound of their own. At once, the lyrics are memorable and catchy. The vocalists, Cuddy and Keelor, each bring their own qualities which never grow old with Cuddy having impressive range while Keelor brings at times, a nice raspiness with a clever edge. "Bad Timing", one of the great tunes off this gem, would soar on the country charts if given a chance. With the exception of "Til I Gain Control Again" *brilliantly covered earlier by Crsytal Gayle and later by Willie Nelson*, all the tunes are penned by Cuddy and Keelor, as are their efforts on other Blue Rodeo albums. I had the great pleasure to see/hear this remarkable group at The Ramshead Tavern in Annapolis, Maryland. They DID NOT disappoint. If you're looking for GREAT music outside the usual stuff played endlessly on formatted radio, this is a MUST! I would also suggest their DVD, "Burning Snowmen", which chronicles them over time. If you can, find a way to one of their concerts...

and another disk that's on my "CDs To Take With Me On a Desert Island" list. My favorite original songs on it are Bad Timing, an absolutely heartbreaking ballad about regret and the end of a relationship, and the uptempo Head Over Heels, a fun, sexy, all out terrific song. The band also does a great cover of the song Til I Gain Control Again.
There's a nice mix of ballads and uptempo rock/alt country numbers, and the guys are great musicians. I actually think that this CD has a nicer mix/balance of tempos than Casino, the other Blue Rodeo disk I own. There are some terrific guitar bits on this disk (and on Casino). Jim Cuddy's voice is in fine form, and I found I liked Greg Keelor's vocals more than I did on Casino. What's even better is that with the exception of Til I Can Gain Control Again, Cuddy and Keelor write all Blue Rodeo's songs.
If you like rock/alt country, -- or maybe even if you don't, and you just appreciate great songs, this album is a must! I know that I've fallen in love with this band, and now I'm going to try to get the rest of their CDs.

Five Days in July is truly a masterpiece, an album that is beautiful at every level, sometimes hauntingly so as with Greg Keelor's Dark Angel which features Sarah McLachaln on piano and backup vocals. Jim Cuddy is also at his best on this album with amazing songs like English Bay and 'Til I Gain Control Again. No CD in my collection of over 600 has stood the test of time like this one, in my opinion this is the best album ever recorded by anyone, I know, a bold statement but after listening to Five Days many hundreds of times for more than 10 years I can honestly say that no other album has even come close. Blue Rodeo features two lead singers, Jim Cuddy and Greg Keeler, each with every different styles and sounds and there always seems to be just a bit of tension between them that causes them to push each other to be the best they can be. It is truly unfortunate that this band has not received the recognition it deserves in the United States. Buy this album, you will not be disappointed; and if you ever have the opportunity to see Blue Rodeo live, don't miss it. As good as they are recorded, they are even better live.
