One of the most prominent mainstream rock bands in Canada, Our Lady Peace can't seem to get a break in the States. Their consistently engaging (if not always inventive) music deserves better. While slick, self-important songs like "Do You Like It" and "Made of Steel" may not help the group's case, they are more than compensated for by the expert playing and towering choruses of slow-burners like "Somewhere out There" and "Sell My Soul." Singer Raine Maida definitely has one of the more distinctive voices in rock & roll--part Scott Weiland, part Michael Stipe--and when it takes flight on the former track, Our Lady Peace truly sound like a force to be reckoned with. Here's hoping people are listening. --Aidin Vaziri

With Gravity, Our Lady Peace's newest release, they clean up their act quite a bit and produce songs with more polish and pop sensibility than ever before. While radio and new fans might find this appealing, more hardcore fans like myself will tend to be dissapointed. The album itself is not bad, but after chronological improvement in each album they release, this one seems to be a letdown. There are numerous problems that could have lead to this lacking effort. First of all, Mike Turner, OLP's original guitarist left the band for creative differences. I can see why he did. The new guitarist Steve Mazur isn't bad but is definitely not on par with the guitarwork of Turner. Turner really knew how to compliment Raine's interesting vocal stylings, Mazur doesn't do that as well. Speaking of vocal stylings, Raine Maida's performance, while not bad at all, is not his usual self. It's like he purposely tried to limit his style, and cut back on the things that made his singing interesting. Also, the album's sound is lacking. It tends to be muddy, especially when the power chords kick in. And believe me, the power chords kick in. The new guitarist brings with him little of the intricate picking and melodies of Turner, and limits himself to simple riffing without many fills or leads. After an album (that's the wonderful Spiritual Machines) that had 2-3 guitar tracks complimenting themselves and the music, only one straight ahead riff feels inadequate. I credit most of these problems to Bob Rock, OLP's new producer. Arnold Lanni, the previous producer knew the band and really clicked with them. Bob Rock does not, and that's a shame. Even Raine's lyrics, which have always been inventive and fairly good, are severely suffering here. They fall too quickly into cliches.Read more ›

I'm going to qualify each of the two stars I'm giving this record, and it's going to take me a few paragraphs. Those who'd like to rate this review "unhelpful" simply because they disagree with it are advised to read the below, or at least pretend to read to it (most will do neither).
I am an Our Lady Peace fan. I've been so for years, and there isn't much I don't know about the band. From the 1992's independant video "Out of Here" featuring the long-departed drummer Jim Newell, to lost songs "Home" and "Sleeping In," to the source material for the band's disjointed concept record Spiritual Machines, I've done my homework.
OLP has taken on many guises in the last decade, and I've welcomed each. They've evolved from a gritty grunge band to an alternative sensation, with the records Naveed and Clumsy, and then redefined themselves completely with the brilliantly challenging Happiness . . . Is Not A Fish That You Can Catch.
I consider those records a trilogy. There are somewhat trivial reasons . . . each has Sol Fox on the cover, the first single and lead-off track has the word "man" in the title -- but they also map a clear creative trajectory. You can see, or rather hear, the band striving to become itself. And with Happiness, they did: any trace of their grunge and alternative roots was shed, and what remained was a coherent, complete, and stimulating album which contained the music of a band working passionately, feverishly, and as a whole.
Predictably, the record sold a fraction of the more accessible Clumsy.
Happiness was followed by a good, but fractured disc exporing the concept of machines who become, intellectually and emotionally, human.

My feelings about this album... well it is poor because Our Lady Peace always had a unique sound and now quite frankly now they sound like everyone else out there. I'm going to agree with the others who have reviewed this album that Bob Rock is no Arnold Lanni this is a luke warm album. They produced the whole thing in ten weeks and believe me you can tell the whole thing feels rushed, I mean even the cover look at it, grey yeah it is quite fitting. Some think this is a return to OLP's roots I disagree I've been a fan of there's eight years If there going to make more albums like this they should change there name I don't want the words Our Lady Peace on this material. Thank you Mr Bob Rock.

Well, I guess I'm just going to be saying what a lot of people have already said: As a radio-friendly rock record, "Gravity" is pretty good. Better than most of the other bands you'll hear on the airwaves. But "Gravity" just can't hold a candle to ANY of Our Lady Peace's previous releases. Mike Turner's creative guitar melodies are gone in favor of playing which is much more fueled by bland power-chords. Raine Maida's singing has lost most of the eccentricity that made it unique, which goes hand-in-hand with cliche lyrics. Bob Rock's production seems only to have watered down the music, getting rid of the mood that helped make "Spiritual Machines" great. And fans of "Naveed," don't be fooled - this is not a return to "Naveed's" style. While both albums are certainly heavier than the three which separate them, "Naveed" still had inspired music, thoughtful lyrics, and quirky singing; "Gravity" does not.
So, as an Our Lady Peace record, "Gravity" is disappointing. But it's definitely still enjoyable and catchy. In fact, from any other band, I'd probably find this album rather impressive. It's just that Our Lady Peace are capable of a LOT more. In the end, "Gravity" is a worthwhile purchase - just don't expect it to be as good as the band's past offerings.
