Editorial Reviews

Multi-Platinum band Everclear return with their eight new album, and their first in six years, Invisible Stars. Frontman Art Alexakis says Invisible Stars is a record that wanted to be made, as opposed to a record that I wanted to make. This is a collection of songs that wouldn't leave me alone. They are full of melody, big guitars, sarcasm, humor and a firm eye on the light at the end of the tunnel, walking the line between sounding like a classic Everclear album of the late 1990's and a contemporary rock record. This is a record I have been waiting to make my whole life. The album boasts 12 exciting new tracks, from album opener Tiger In A Burning tree, to Be Careful What You Ask For to Santa Ana Wind through to the end with Promenade. Invisible Stars is a thematic collection of songs from the perspective of someone who has ridden the rollercoaster, and has got back in line. Everclear, like its charismatic front man, has grown up a bit, and at the same time, Everclear (again, like Art) refuses to grow up and play nice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty damn stoked... July 10, 2012
Format:Audio CD
...to be able to write about how much I love this album. Since So Much For The Afterglow there had been a worryingly constant decline with this band but this is where the rot stops.

If you liked Sparkle & Fade you will like this.

If you liked ...Afterglow you will like this.

If you hated the last ten years you will like this.

If you had given up on Everclear you will like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Everclear June 27, 2012
By amrog
Format:MP3 Music
It's been awhile since Art Alexakis has come out with new material, but what you have here is Art in classic form creating a stories from his life that pretty much anyone can relate too. It's simple, melodic, hooky, and filled with tracks that any nineties child will fall in love with instantly. With a bit of everything for every type of Everclear fan (whether you are a Sparkle & Fade child or a Slow Motion Daydream fan) it is money well spent.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great return to form after some big missteps. July 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I am so happy to be writing a 4-star review of an Everclear album in 2012. "So Much for the Afterglow" is one of my favorite albums of all time, a record that is pretty fantastic from beginning to end. I'm also a big fan of "Sparkle and Fade" and I think a decent single record can be made from parts of the 2 volumes of "Songs from an American Movie". But starting around "Slow Motion Daydream" my hope began to wane and it finally came crashing down with "Welcome to the Drama Club" and the remake album "In A Different Light". After those two albums I really was losing hope that Art would ever return to form again.

It's unfair to expect a band to keep churning out songs in their classic style, but the Beach Boy happy sounds and signature Art Alexakis depressing lyrics on "So Much for the Afterglow" really left me wanting more, and I can safely say that while "Invisible Stars" is not nearly as good as that album, it comes quite close. Easily their best collection of songs since Afterglow, the single "Be Careful What You Ask For" returns to that sound and is a tune I keep going back to. Other stand outs are the opener "Tiger in a Burning Tree", "Falling in a Good Way", "The Golden Rule", and "Promenade". The remaining tracks flesh out the strong skeletal framework that the aforementioned songs set up, making for a summer album that's just as refreshing as downing a cold beverage on a 90 degree day.

Why not 5 stars? It's simply not my favorite and I'm still not liking the use of synthesizers on a majority of the songs. I think if these songs had been stripped down a bit more, this would be one hell of an album. But despite the candy-coated sound that the synth provides, these songs still manage to rock somehow.

Believe me, I was as down on this band as anyone so you can trust me when I say that if you've been missing the old Everclear, treat yourself to a copy of "Invisible Stars"; you won't be sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great comeback! June 28, 2012
By a
Format:Audio CD
This is a great album for both old and new fans of Everclear. If you enjoyed "So Much For the Afterglow" you will def enjoy this. With the song "Be Careful What You Ask For" as the single I find that to be the weakest track on the album. All the songs are worth listening to, there are no songs that I would skip on this cd. The only drawback is the amount of songs. I would have liked to have 15 but be careful what you ask for. Here is a break down of each song:

Tiger In A Burning Tree: Great opening track, short but long enough for it to get stuck in your head. 8\10

Falling in A Good Way: Another good track. Lyrics are good same with the music, but it feels like a filler to me. Would be better if it was longer. 7.5\10

Be Careful what You Ask For: As I said above, one of the weakest songs on here. It's not bad, but not the best, repeats itself too much. 7\10

Volcano: Great track. Strong lyrics. One of my favorites. 9\10

Santa Ana Wind: Nice track. Doesn't really sound like Santa Monica, but that's in a good way. 8\10

Wishing: Awesome track. Everything is great about this one. 10\10

I Am Better Without you: The guitars sound really crispy and clean in this. Def one of the best on the album. 10\10

Aces: Has a "Sparkle & Fade" feel to it. A classic Everclear song. 9\10

Jackie Robinson: The piano intro is awesome in this song. This is a different direction from the other songs on the album. 9\10

Golden Rule: my second to least favorite on the album, but I might just need time for it to grow on me. 7\10

Rocket For The Girl: Nice addition to the album this song brings. Love the lyrics. 9\10

Promenade: The best song on the whole album. One of my favorite Everclear songs of all time, everything is perfect. 10\10

Overall this is a must buy for any Everclear fan. Overall rating of the album: 9\10

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this man August 28, 2012
By Lo
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
All I kept thinking as I listened to this album for the first (and second, third, fourth, etc) is how much I love Art Alexakis. I am so glad he finally wrote some new stuff. The majority of the songs on this album are awesome lyrically speaking, and the music - which I do not profess to be any kind of expert on - is pretty awesome too. "I am Better Without You" did for me in 8 minutes (listening to it twice) what six months of therapy has failed to do, and "Jackie Robinson" brought tears to my eyes, while "Santa Ana Winds" "Rocket for the Girl" and "Promenade" tugged at my heart strings, as many of Art's lyrics do. "Be Careful What You Ask for" and "Falling in a Good Way" are fun and catchy. Now my mission is to get other people to listen to this album and appreaciate it as I do.
