Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The follow-up to Black Lab’s critically acclaimed Geffen debut Your Body Above Me (feat. "Wash it Away," “Time Ago”), See the Sun is a lush, epic union of heartbreak and rock & roll, diamond-cut lyrics set to hard candy melodies, raging guitars and gin-soaked stories of love, loss and redemption. Like U2 and Live and the Goo's getting drunk together. Like a five star hotel, you check in and you’re sorry to check out. Their new album has a depth and emotional range that broadens with each listen. Grammy award-winning engineer Tom Lord-Alge (Live, Blink 182) mixed most of the album. What shines brightest is the band's pop sensibility – the liquid swirl of "Remember," the epic sweep of "See the Sun," the raging loss of "Without You," and the open-armed surrender of "Lonely Boy." Black Lab has contributed to the soundtracks of Spider Man, Can't Hardly Wait, Varsity Blues, Permanent Midnight, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Party of Five, What I Like About You, MTV's The Real World, and most recently, Blade: Trinity.

From the Artist

The lyrics were insightful and catchy.

It's a good CD with at least a few good songs on it, some of which I really enjoyed listening to.

I saw these guys back when I was in highschool...in 1997, I believe, in concert at Lupos in Providence Rhode Island when they were with Our Lady Peace. I didn't know it then, but I was standing next to the lead singer watching Our Lady Peace with him while he was having a beer. I realised who he was after he walked away. Didn't even get to tel him "great set!" They were better than "Peace" on stage. I've listened to their album ever since and when I heard they broke up it...well...sucked. I heard all these guys just gave up and for years I've looked and looked and watched and waited for this...and I have to say... It's worth it. Though, it does lack some "darkness" of the first album, I am thankkful it's here. The first album was great because these three guys did all everything with their instruments and the lead singer was able to pull a "Scott Weiland" and manipulte his voice in pretty cool, albeit Billy Idol ways sometimes. He's not doing that much here, but bands have to change. But they should know they can alway go back to the "dark side" if they want. The fans will still be there. And I'm happy they put "learn to crawl" on this. When I heard this on "Spider-man", I was "Yes, they are coming back!" Thank god...and the smart, smart poeple in the music industry.

Searching for a fantastic CD that gives you faith in the music world again? Look no further! 'See The Sun', is without question one of those discs.

Gloriously catchy hooks, you will find it impossible to get these melodies out of your head. If I had to pick, stand out tracks would be 'See The Sun', 'Lonely Boy', 'Tell Me Why', 'Circus Lights', and their pinnacle track on the CD, 'Without You'.

Help support this band and their brilliant self-produced effort.

My Highest Recommendation!

You know, I first picked up a copy of Black Lab's "Your Body Above Me" years and years ago, in a store in the little town in Georgia I was living in, at the time. Listening to it, I was completely blown away, each track was a different style, a new emotional coloring to the vocals, the lyrics were certainly far-more thought-provoking then anything I could find on the radio, then. (And even now.) I kept hoping for a follow-up, especially after having heard rumors/news of the band's breakup. However, their continued contributions to soundtracks made me doubt....and now? It's awesome. Awesome, awesome, AWESOME. They hold true to the in-depth lyrics, the arrangements are awesome, and they've updated their 'sound' with techno/trance/sequencer effects in some songs, but only to give them more punch, not letting these effects take away from the song's delivery, itself. "Ecstacy", "Dream In Color", and "Learn to Crawl" (originally featured in the "Spiderman: The Movie" soundtrack) are all stand-out tracks, but above and beyond all others, the absolute, naked pain and surrender found in "Lonely Boy" is the one that shines above all others. All in all, though, you come away from each track, enjoying something about every one, for different reasons. If you've never heard of these guys, either "Your Body Above Me" or "See The Sun" are both great albums. If you've heard them, and liked them before, it only gets better. If (for whatever reason!) you *don't* like Black Lab's sound, then this album isn't going to change your mind. It's not more of the same, it's better then before.

Ever since I heard 'Learn To Crawl' on the Spider-Man Motion Picture Soundtrack I had a thirst to hear more of Black Lab's music. I bought this CD, praying I would not be let down. I wasn't one tiny bit. I LOVE this CD! I wasn't too pleased with Your Body Above Me, which I found moderately okay. I found this much superior. The only song I didn't like was Ecstasy, it just didn't have a catchy beat or lyrics and wasn't very memorable. With awsome songs like 'Lifelike' 'Wide Open' 'Without You' and 'Tell Me Why,' this CD will keep you entertained for hours while you hum along to your favourite songs. The lyrics were insightful and catchy. The music fitted perfectly to each and every song, each song being unique in it's own special way. Buy this CD, it's not a waste of money. Black Lab is an awsome bands which deserves more recognition. After listening for this, I have a thirst for a new album by Black Lab!

The best way to describe this CD would be the "light" side of Black Lab.

YBAM was always thought of as "bad" U2 (not bad, but dark...). When I listen to YBAM and See the Sun back to back I can't help but think of the music video for Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me by U2 when the black and white variations of the band fight each other. This is exactly how the two albums react to each other - the same, but direct opposites.

See the Sun is exactly what I've been waiting for. Every song is golden, I highly recommend it. I've already used up my copy and I've bought about 4 total to give out to friends and family. This is the best present that could be received at Christmas, pick them up while they're here!

You can buy this CD directly from the band at their website and it's only $12 plus shipping. They also have some other CDs and merchandise for sale.
