"As You Sleep"- At first, this song will make you drift off to sleep. You may think it is because it's boring or plain at first, but then you realize- this is the perfect lullaby. And that's what it's supposed to be: a lullaby of a goodbye that Andrew sings to his loved one before leaving on tour. The lyrics are lovely, the music is soft and sweet, and Andrew's vocals are so melodic.
"Space"- Josh's songs are definitely better in past albums, in my humble opinion, and Space is to me one of the weaker tracks on the album. However, this upbeat song still has a fun tone to it, and it doesn't necessarily disappoint. I imagine the song is about trying to break up with a girl. But only because of that time-honored jackass line "Give me space".
"Down"- Another kind of sad, longing song from Andrew. Absolutely gorgeous lyrics and music. This song feels so far removed from the old, pop-punk Something Corporate.
"Only Ashes"- This one takes a little bit of getting used to. It's Josh's once again, but this track is a little stronger. The message is very thought-provoking and the music is pretty cool.
"Me and the Moon"- Arguably the best track on the album, about a suburban wife killing her abusive husband.Read more ›
The pianos mesh much better with the surrounding instruments, thers a perfect balance. The lyrics talk about specific situations in detail and alltogether the band sounds beyond their years.
The standout track on North is definitly "Me and the Moon" Its a breathtaking ballad with a beautiful feel good chorus. This track takes the place of "Cavenaugh Park" on their last album.
I also love "Down" which has another great piano section and "Runaway", another track with a great chorus.
Considering all the hype these guys had to live up to, they did an excellent job and I'm not disapointed in the least bit.

I love the "nerdy" Andrew McMahon. Great writer. Something Corporate is more of a rock band and I think of all of this work, thus far, it stands up best.Published 18 months ago by 7takearisk7
Love this CD.. lost it and had to replace it. If you like Jack's Mannequin you should listen to this as well. Andrew Mcmahon is great.Published 21 months ago by Christopher H. Blue
Love Something Corporate, this album has a good mix of moods: happy, angry, sad, empty, hopeful. Great music! Listen to is in your room, in your car, sing along.Published on July 25, 2013 by Riray
If you're looking for the SoCo sound of Ready...Break!, Leaving Through The Window, or Audioboxer, this is not for you. Read morePublished on August 25, 2008 by John P. Willis
North is an album that is an acquired taste. As an avid Something Corporate and Jack's Mannequin fan, I certainly did not love North when I first listened to it, but after a while... Read morePublished on May 16, 2008 by W. Geiger
Not as good as Leaving Through The Window. Most of the songs get boring fast. The best song is 21 and Invincible.Published on May 26, 2007 by Nicole Z.

Spectacular album. Well, technically you can download Watch the Sky but if you are a true Something Corporate fan, getting this album shouldn't even be a question. Read morePublished on August 16, 2006 by D. Won
