5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite albums....ever! December 20, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This album is more of everything that you love from Passafire. Amazing instrumentals from a wide variety of instruments, creative lyrics expressed with gobs of soul and care, and more heart in every note than any of their past albums. Pick this album up. I promise you that you will like it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Start from scratch all right... December 1, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
If you purchased this album hoping for Passafire, reggae fusion, you will be dissapointed. It is a good album, but not reggae fusion. They "Started from scratch" on their sound. At first I was very dissapointed, but after another listen I turned my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Organic high energy July 10, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
Every so often a high-energy breed of cross genres classification comes along and simplifies the purity of music. Passafire proves their ability to be that band of 2011 with Start From Scratch. "We always wanted to have a good balance of organic and synthesized sounds and we finally had the chance to make that happen this time," recollects singer, Ted Bowne

Tracks like "Lorelie" have a fresh converging sound, mincing digital waves and old school vibe. Reggae, Punk and a bit of Glam all peppered with a terrific hook. The following song "Train Wreck" has a more traditional acoustic sound, and underscores their careful song-writing abilities. The lead track "Hard To Believe" is very reminescent of pioneers 311, featuring an adjacent sound of Funk/Punk/Reggae.

Some tracks have a very unique blending or sound. Off beat effects, organ breakdowns and a temporarily ferocios bridge make songs like "Winter Wren" a signature to stand by. Another track with a terrific tension is "La Fuenta". By far, one of the best tracks here is the self-titled track nine, "Start From Scratch". Infused with a traditional Reggae production and instrumentation, the lead vocals are clear. The lead vocals are a very sincere portion of this record, as singer Browne, doesn't go beyond his accent or range to sound more ethnically Reggae than he is. Then there are songs like the closer "Kiss My Head" that favor the distrorted punk flavoring.

Even on the weaker songs like "Shapes and Colors" or Epiphany, the Savannah, Georgia band find a way to keep things unique and rhythmic. Produced by Paul Leary (Butthole Surfers, Sublime, Meat Puppets) and recorded where (Sonic Ranch outside of El Paso, TX) Connor Oberst, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Sublime with Rome to name a few have recorded, Passafire was one of the most buzzed about bands at Warped Tour this year. After seeing them live and hearing this new record, I now know why.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feel Good Music October 21, 2011
By NappyXL
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
We got the chance to see Passafire on the Warped Tour at the Gorge and it was one of my highlights about the Warped tour. For one the music is great and secondly the made my 11 year old sons day when he got to take a group photo with them. Like the title says it is just FEEL GOOD MUSIC. We get the chance to see them again at the Nectar Lounge this saturday.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as past albums December 2, 2013
By A.J.
Format:Audio CD
The first few albums were fantastic. Submersible being one of my favorite albums of all time. Start from Scratch however does not hold up to past standards. Overall I don't have much to say aside from the good songs are shadowed by the overwhelming number of average (or bad) songs.
