4.0 out of 5 stars here's yr warning February 6, 2001
Format:Audio CD
"Thanks to U2 for inspiration"....that little sleeve note should serve as a red flag for all hardcore purists who stumble into this (and other mid-period 7 Seconds albums) expecting another The Crew. You ain't gonna get that here, kids, and chances are, you may hate what you do get.
Kevin later denied being influenced much by U2, but the vocals and arrangements here certainly indicate otherwise. Much of this bears more than a passing resemblence to Boy/October/War-era U2 with a slightly more pronounced pop sensibility, with the occasional trad loud-fast hardcore song ("Still Believe", "New Wind") thrown in for good measure.
That said, I find this album fascinating. New Wind is a true example of expanding the boundries of what hardcore can be. The juxtoposition of the fast/loud songs with the more mainstream sounding ones may seem weird (or may strike closed-minded HC purists as a <ahem> sellout). But then, when I first got this album at 16 years old, the fact that a member of a HC band was wearing a Slayer shirt on the inner sleeve seemed weird. But then that's what 7 Seconds is all about, and that's what makes them beautiful. Walk together, rock together indeed. 7 Seconds had something to teach us all.
Some of 7 Seconds' best songs are on here ("Still Believe", "Opinion Of Feelings", and the truly transcendent "The Night Away"), and the album only falls flat on its face once, on the closing "Colour Blind Jam", a badly execued rap/dub experiment.
If you can deal with this album (or heaven forbid, love it like I do), you should check out Kevin Seconds solo stuff (especially his album Stoudamire and the upcoming Heaven Is Wherever You Are), particularly if you enjoy artists like Ben Lee or Elliott Smith. Also recommended is Kevin's pop-punk outfit Go National.

4.0 out of 5 stars a change September 3, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I have been a big 7 Seconds fan since about 1986. One of my first shows a 7 Seconds and the Circle Jerks at City Gardens in 87. A lot of people are saying this is a lame album, or it doesnt sound the same as The Crew. What's the point of a band putting out the same record over and over? I have to admit, when I bought this album when it originally was released, I was a bit confused. And when Ourselves came out, I was convinced that they had "sold out". But Listen to some of the albums to follow, and you will see that they never lost their hardcore edge! Now that I am older ( a lot older) I can appreciate what the band was doing. This album is refreshing all these years later. Now I still love Skins, Brains and Guts, but I am not as closed minded now as I was as a 16 year old straight edge punk. I see this album for what it is...a "New Wind", and the chance for a hardcore band to show that they could do more than just play the same 3 chords over and over.

4.0 out of 5 stars We could be a new wind... August 2, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Well as in the other reviews i will start by making this clear this is a very different record to "the crew" or "walk together...". But neither is it a U2 record as some hardcore enthusiasts would have you believe, and in fact i doubt many of them have made it past the first track on this.
There is a definite new-wavish rock influence however the band didn't abandon their hardcore sound but mearly attempted to blend it in ("i guess the others turned their backs on what they now call..., it doesn't really matter cause its their words i forget"- i still believe)
they DID NOT abandon hardcore but mearly tried to expand it.
the record was recorded in two sessions the first (which admittedly most of my favourite tracks on the record are from)was recorded with Ian Mackaye in DC in 85, the second session (containing the tracks which called people to cry foul) recorded in April of the next year with a different line up.
The four tracks from the original session stand out though even these are not all straight up hardcore, grown apart for example reminds me more of the funk/punk sound of gang of four than 7 seconds hardcore peers(new wind and still believe are the only tracks which sound alot like their previous work).
The points on where this album is let down is the seeming "flatness" of the songs recorded in the second session, the tunes in generally seem delivered slightly uncomfortably and the vocals seem to struggle to make up for it, though these songs are not unlistenable they are a let down in comparison to the brilliance of some of the material on the album.
I would have been delighted to hear an expansion on the sound covered in grown apart (it is one of my favourite 7 seconds songs)...that said there is one moment in this album I cannot stand...

4.0 out of 5 stars a classic 7 seconds release June 23, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is classic 7 seconds. not as hard as "Walk together, Rock Together", but just as great. This is when the band started to get very melodic, but not sappy and preachy. I would greatly recommend this record to all seven seconds fans who have recently discovered the band, and haven't heard their earlier recordings. In my opinion, the best record they ever released...by far.

5.0 out of 5 stars great transition album June 12, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is still my favourite 7 seconds album, even though they don't rock like in walk together, rock together, there is this weird positive vibe through the whole playing that really grabs you and the songs seem to flow easily, I just hate the last jamming song which makes no sense at all, but the rest is really good.
