The Ocean Blue is one of my favorite bands, and looking at Amazon reviews from their other albums I don't think I am alone on this. Mostly, it seems, it is the three Sire albums that have really made it for TOB, and that is quite fine. Admittedly, my favorite is Cerulean, and perhaps now their latest, Ultramarine. That being said, I really do believe that they have never made a bad album and as different as See can be at time it is as fine an album as any of their others. Very recently I saw them live where they did several songs from See -- songs I kind of forgot about -- and it forced me to revisit this collection of songs. Really, they are all quite good, and there are also a few really strong standout songs. Slide, for example, ranks up their with their very best.

It is a bit heavier, a bit more soulful, and just more raw than their Sire albums. It seems fans of their first releases had a hard time with this one, and that's too bad. Maybe it also had to do with the unfortunate circumstances that surround this release: As I understand the label, Polydor, closed up shop not long at all after the release of See, and with that went all promotion of the kind enjoyed with the Sire releases. Then again, by the late nineties everything was changing: the music scene, the music market, college radio, and so on.

But the point is that this is an under-appreciated gem that deserves a bit more attention, particularly from fans of TOB. Considered now in the continuity of all of their releases, including their 2013 release, this one is really not that out of step at all.

This band does dreampop like no one else. The song "BYE" is an ineffable joy. The cover picture from a Bergman movie is an esoteric gem as well. The Ocean Blue is a sparkling gem in a sea of sand. Music is such an individual thing, what you like I may not...blah..blah..bahhhh -but if it moves you to tears alone in the dark- god bless it and you. This band has my heart.

The departure of Steve Lau may have influenced the brass and the ivory usage on the album. However, as David has with the other releases, this album projects new moods and similar sounds. Rob plays an active role in the production which is crisp and etherial. The band suffers from lack of MTV and label support. With recent industry changes, is TOB still together? Ten years, four albums later and a few labels later TOB surprises you with hard and soft edges. "Bitter" and "Whenever you're Around" have some power. New keyboard player, guitarist and backing vocalist Ed Ronnie lends a track of his own & pulls his weight on CD & in concert.

I have always loved The Ocean Blue but didn't have this particular CD. Absolutely love it. It was different at first, not what I had expected but I really grew to love all the songs, particularly "Bite Your Lip". If you are a fan this is a must have!

I really enjoyed this recording. It just seemed like a logical progression for the band. From their first album, "Between Something and Nothing", to their subsequent albums, they have grown and matured as musicians and songwriters. It was not what I expected from The Ocean Blue but that is what blows me away with each new recording of theirs. You can hear the old stuff/songs underneath each new song but the new ones definitely strike out on their own and make a name for themselves. I would recommend this to anyone who loves music.

I've been a fan of the Ocean Blue since I first heard the self-titled album. I was a fan of many different genres when I first heard them so I was very happy when See was released since it shows a different faze of their musical existence.

I think you'd have to see them play this material live to understand that the band was playing something different as their lives evolve. This album reflects some of the ambience the show produced and I'm happy to hear David writing some diverse material.

Don't compare See to earlier or later albums; listen to it as it's own identity and soak in the emotion on such tracks as Bitter, Behind and the soulful SLIDE! This album goes through a roller-coaster of dynamic sounds that should be listened to a few times in the summer. Drive and enjoy.
