I've been waiting for Tonic to do another album for a while now, and figured that they'd sadly gone the way of other great, underrated bands like JellyFish. So glad that's not the case.

This is a great album and has everything that most Tonic fans have come to appreciate. There are great melodies and lyrics here, though the album at times feels a bit more stripped down to me than their previous albums.

It feels a bit more "intimate" than their other records (which are classic albums!). My favorite track has to be "Daffodil". Great feel to it. The acoustic version is better than the electric version. In fact either version of "Daffodil" would make a great single either on a Country station or an AOR station (are there AOR stations anymore??). Great chorus hook in that song. Unfortunately, with the state of the record companies and lame taste of most of the record-buying public, this album will most likely vanish into obscurity and the band will be forced to do something else to survive. Hopefully that won't happen for some time yet.

Does the beginning of "Feel It Now" remind of anyone else of "Polythene Pam" from The Beatles "Abbey Road" album? Not the melody, just the feel and instrumentation. Might just be me, but it's a great feel. There are actually a few "Beatley" moments on this album. I know I heard several Ringo drum fills, but that's beside the point.

There's something about Tonic's lyrical delivery that knocks me out every time. Something about the way the lyrics fit into their music forces you to listen to the lyrics like a lot of other band's recordings do not. It's not just "verse- bridge- hook-chorus".

Although I've read some bad reviews, I listen with my ears wide open. I enjoyed it. No it's not like their previous cds, but still....it's got the Tonic flavor. A little more mellow....but I enjoy that side of the guys. Being in my fifties...I hear alot in their music & THAT is what I've always enjoyed the most. It's new & refreshing.....with just that hint of influence that I know & understand. Comforting to me in my "old age" LOL

I have liked Tonic since they released their debut in the late 90's. So glad they are back together, this album is as good as the previous three.

How do you rate a music band? If you like them you like them, if you don't care for them, you don't. Well I have always liked Tonic since they aren't afraid to make some off-the-beaten-path songs and also some radio-friendly songs. This album contains I'd say an even mix of both. There are a few more slower ones here than in past albums, but that's not a bad thing. Emerson has a voice that lends well to any type/tempo/mood of song and this album showcases the band's talents nicely. If you're a Tonic fan this one may at first seem a departure from their older albums while maintaining that familiarity you want, but it will surely grow on you like the others did.

I am really glad that Tonic decided to reunite and give us another solid album. I have been waiting for this for quite some time now and it did not disappoint, after hearing the album, one would never know that this band took on a hiatus for almost 7 years.. Tonic got back from where they left things off with their Grammy nominated album Head On Straight and proved that they can still craft gems such as Release Me, Daffodil, I Want It To Be and Nothing is Everything. This album is well worth the money. Highly recommended!

I have been a fan of Tonic since their first album came out. They are one band I always buy their music, even when Emerson came out with a solo project. I was upset when they broke up but excited when they came back with this album.
It took a few listens to change me from not loving it and being disappointed to loving it. This album does sound different to a degree from their last 3 albums but I ended up loving, as usual, every song on the album.
If you have been a fan of their work in the past I say give if a go on this one.

I am a huge Tonic fan; so when I found out they were back together, I was ecstatic. I got to see and spend some time with them at a concert in Atlantic City in May. When I was finally able to get this CD, I was NOT disappointed. Although it's somewhat different from their earlier releases, I highly recommend it to all old and new fans.

I am really enjoying this album, the latest from Tonic. I have read some of the other reviews saying that it doesn't sound like the old Tonic, but I disagree... it still has their sound, but of course it won't be exactly like the past albums. Good musicians grow and mature, and their sound will evolve while still maintaining some of its own unique style, and I think this album does just that.

There is a nice blend of softer tunes intermingled with harder ones, which I like. I can still hear that great combination of Jeff's "edgier" electric guitar with Emerson's "jangly" guitar, as another reviewer referred to it... that sound comes through in most of the tracks on this CD, and it produces a really good sound that leaves you feeling refreshed and energized.

Lyrically, the album is beautiful. The words are certainly coming from the depths of the heart and soul. The depth of some of the lyrics can really make you pause and say "wow" at the emotion behind them. Just a few examples:
"I'm the reason why the color of your eyes has gone."
"If you can't find a love that you can want enough, baby it will haunt you, and everything you can't do."
"She goes down, wrapped up in the armies of a love she's found."
"If I showed you all my castles, would you teach me not to burn them. If I opened up my heartstrings, would you show me how to heal them. I want it to be something bigger than me."
"It's hard enough not to grieve what you can't be, It's a deep that will take you to a hurt that grows."
If that isn't emotional depth, then I don't know what is!
