Biography

"I think that this is the best thing we've ever done," enthuses Ebbot Lundberg, frontman of The Soundtrack of Our Lives, assessing his band's new album (and Yep Roc debut) Communion. "When we started the band, the idea was to create some sort of musical entrance to another dimension, and I feel like we've achieved that this time. This is the universe that we would ...

5.0 out of 5 stars outstanding, totally outstanding June 21, 2001
By jonas
Format:Audio CD
It's one week now that i've had the chance to listen to this totally amazing record. All the tracks are totally outrageous and feels so genuin. The lyrics could feel sort of complicated the first time you hear them but the more you listen to them, the more they grow.
You gotta have this almbum 'cause it is a genius piece of modern art that will become more and more uncommon in this conmercelized age.

4.0 out of 5 stars Warm up for Behind The Music May 21, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Take 5 is a primer for Behind The Music. The rousing Dow Jones Syndrome and witty No Brainer (with a bold reference to The Beatles' Tomorrow Never Knows (the version on the Anthology CD)and two others could have easily graced Behind The Music. The melodies, dynamic arrangements and vocal harmonies both refer to previous decades and bands (most notably The Beatles, The Who, The Kinks and 70's power pop like Badfinger)but also look ahead to the distinctive sound that emerged on the band's third full length CD.
The last track Play Station Bordello sounds like a Eno on steriods. It could almost be a lost track from Eno's Another Green World (and clearly that was the inspiration). While it isn't the best track on the album, it's an apt closing pulling the band out of the 70's and into the new century.
I'd love to see the band's numerous EP's, b-sides and bonus tracks compiled onto a single disc. In the meantime, I'll have to make do with the CDR I made of this classic album, the Bonus Future EP CD and odds and ends released by the band over the last year. I wish that Universal would get a clue and finally release this stuff in the United States.

2.0 out of 5 stars interesting metaphors, uninteresting music September 22, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Love's ups & downs, losses & gains via the metaphor of the stock exchange. I've never heard of this metaphor before, so I applaud the lyrical creativity of TSOOL's opening track "Dow Jones Syndrome" ... though in this day & age it might not actually be a love song! "Nobrainer" with its advertising board room verse "no brainer/money maker/this is what we'd all would like you'd to buy" follows a similiar lyrical play on a theme, but with a much more hippie musical background. Sadly, the music drones on & on hypnotically & the lyrics repeat far too much, taking a good theme that could be developed out more for some lyrical comical twists & languishing in repetition that goes nowhere. The music is interesting with its amalgamation of 60's psychedelic rock styles relying a lot on dreamy guitar & harpsichord backgrounds, but other bands do something better. Other bands also get the body rolling with some interesting melodies & rhythms underneath the textures. Oasis & Bigelf come to mind in crafting something that sounds like the Rolling Stones or Beatles but taking it up a notch into some personal, while Kula Shaker took the Indian experience to a more personal level with a message. The three songs that follow aren't as lyrically interesting & much more straight ahead radio rock with little touches of country (i.e. "It Ain't Free (Livin' In A Bubble)"), while "James Last Experience", "Play Station Bordello" both wander in trippy esoterica, particularly the instrumental later with tamboura strumming. It's an interesting ending song, but I've always felt instrumentals were wasted on EPs unless its a progressive band. Personally, I'd be interested in hearing the lyrics developed out more instead of heavy repetition, with the music have something more than a just denseness that's imitative without personality that doesn't go anywhere. TSOOL broke up this year so they've played their last soundtrack.

4.0 out of 5 stars Take Four August 25, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is awesome.This is where they get great.Lots of guitar.Could've been perfect but the last song seems like filler(not bad filler,just not as good as the rest). I'm not complaining,am I?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Band....Great Album January 14, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is a band that truly rocks and has enough complexity to keep you guessing. This is a band that should not be missed. I haven't heard too much about them in the states...It's too bad. I think eventually that will change!

Check them out.
