Love Stories & Other Musings, the fifth studio album from Candlebox (released April 3 on AudioNest/Fontana/Universal), evidences a newfound level of maturity for the band, formed in 1991 in Seattle. At the same time, listening to it with the volume knob cranked up emphatically reveals that frontman Kevin Martin, lead guitarist Peter Klett, drummer Scott Mercado, and their bandmates, remain ...

Every song is very good.
It's not too often you find an album that you enjoy playing in it's entirety often... this is definately an album I love listening to often!

Awesome. Just awesome. Nothing is better than real rock, and nobody does it better than Candlebox. It's time to kick the three-chord, screaming vocals, generic melody, solo-less, "I hate my life", modern rock garbage to the dump where it belongs, and Candlebox is back to lead the charge. It is such a pleasure to finally buy a new album made by talented musicians and great writers. Every song on this disc is killer. I would have preferred a couple more of the faster songs, and overall the album probably isn't a total masterpiece like the debut or Happy Pills, but this is definitely one of the best albums that will be released this year. Any rock radio station that doesn't play something off this should be boycotted.

UPDATE: Almost two months after getting this album, I appreciate it even more than I did in my original review. I have a substantial cd collection because I get bored with albums quickly, but I can't stop listening to this cd! I would now say that it actually deserves to stand with their two other classic albums, the debut and Happy Pills. Also, I would say that the mix of tempos among the songs is perfect. In fact, the slower songs have become the ones I enjoy the most on this cd, although the rockers are excellent too. Bottom line: this is an amazing album, especially when considering the ten year hiatus since the last one. Hopefully, they will carry on for many more years, and many more outstanding albums.

Plain and simple, Into the Sun is a pure and true rock and roll record. However, the media and the ignorant (those two might just be synonymous) love to put Candlebox into the 1990s grunge bucket. This is unfortunate and absolutely inaccurate, so much so that the band themselves have never embraced the grunge moniker nor have they ever sited any of the bands from that era as musical influences. Beg to differ? Listen to Loud Love by Soundgarden, Rehab Doll by Green River or Superfuzz Bigmuff by Mudhoney and then compare any of these to a Candlebox record. I love them all but they are not the same animal and should not be termed the same.

That said, when listening to Into the Sun you will not hear a grunge or "wannabe grunge" record but rather, you will hear a dynamic record which draws from various classic and hard rock influences as Candlebox always has. Right from the first notes of "Stand" you can hear Kevin Martin paying homage to one of his heroes, Robert Plant, in a vocal phrasing reminiscent of "Immigrant Song". There are moments which include psychedelic rock riffs, a Lennon-esque ballad and an attitude spitting rocker which takes the listener back to the classic days of Aerosmith and Van Halen. In fact, Led Zeppelin gets two nods on this album as the 8:30+ epic slow burner, "Breathe Me In" has a lengthy Rhodes filled intro which feels a lot like "No Quarter" before transitioning into a melodic vocal track and finally exploding into a crescendoed finale. This alone is worth the price of admission! All of the influences are of course seen through the lens of Candlebox and their signature treatments.

wow soo i bought this cd off of i tunes last night. and ive got to say wow. ive been a candlebox fan for a few years now. i never knew who they were when they were in their 90's hey day. but man i missed out. this cd is most compired to their "self titled" first cd. its verry hard rocking with awsome lyrics and smooth guitar solos. ive listened to the album once through and can say it can only get better the more i listen to it though the first listen did not dissapoint. my favorite song so far is the song " surrendering" i like the way kevin martin's voice shines through although his voice is awsome in all the songs it has a cool texture to it. kind of gravely and growly withou screaming. jsut an awsome hard rocking rock and roll album. if you like candle box for its singer and musicianship and u are looking for more bands similar to them check out buckcherry if you havnt already.

The album contains some of the best guitars and vocals in this age of bad rock music. The bluesy grooves of some of the tracks just make you sit back, close your eyes and smile. Some tracks sound eerily familiar to their first album, but hey, that's why they went platinum back then! Its a refreshing change from current popsters and one I hope comes back again soon.

I have been a candlebox fan since I met my wife, (back in 2001 when she was still my 'girlfriend') she had all 3 albums and they were here favorite..I got to listen to them over and over almost every night. i got into songs like 'You' and 'Far Behind'; '10000 horses' and 'Happy pills' etc.. I liked the songs but I felt the overall feel of these albums was sad and depressing...Then while waiting for the next disk I heard that Kevin and Peter were not getting along..Peter wanted to do a more "Pink Floyd" type sound and Kevin wanted to do what he does...His solo record is excellent. 'Kevin Martin and the HiWatts'. If you like Candlebox and don't have it...get it...
I was really disappointed that they broke up...there are very few singer/guitar player duos who come along who have a tone the likes of Page and Plant or Tyler and Perry or Buckingham and Nicks that just goes together and works no matter what they do...Martin and Klett are right there with the aforementioned acts. Kevin's voice and Peter's guitar just go together and sound incredible together. This album is definitely their best effort. And considering how good the first 3 are, that's saying a lot.
This album delivers right from the start. Every song is strong, both lyrically and melodically. The guitar sounds incredible. Peter's tone is just incredible. Everybody talks about Kevin's voice, and don't get me wrong, he has the chops of Plant and the free flowing bluesy feel of Chris Robinson as well as having his own original sound, but without the guitar tone of Peter Klett his songs just don't seem to have the same power, the same feel. Together these guys are a monster. I just hope that others feel it as well. Keep up the awesome work you guys....If you like excellent rock and roll you need to have this record....
