I'm going to keep this short because I'd rather be listening to the cd. It's exactly what I was hoping it would sound like. The orchestration (sp?) really added to it. I wish he'd remake some other of his old songs because it sounds great.

Some of the tracks i skipped through the first time I now have gone back to and absolutely love. Too bad he isn't coming to Spokane!

I remember the first time I stumbled upon Vesely's Myspace page. I thought to myself, "This is what I've been waiting for." After two utterly disappointing Dashboard Confessional releases ("A Mark, A Mission..." and "Dusk and Summer"), tracks off of Vesely's "Awake" seemed to take me back to the simpler days of Dashboard, when it was just a man and his guitar, pure sincerity stripped of all pretension.

And so here I am today, listening to Vesely's latest offering, "A Twist in My Story." And, in a sad way, my original comparison to Dashboard Confessional may have been more on the mark than I once thought. The man and his guitar have been ripped through the production ringer, with the addition of every instrument to boot. That raw sincerity and charm of "Awake" isn't necessarily nonexistent, but you might have to sift through a couple of layers of "recording magic" to find it.

One thing you simply cannot take away from this album is that, for the most part, the songs have that remarkably moving quality that we've grown to love in Vesely's work. And for that, you'll love this album. Songs like "Fall for You," "Like A Knife," and "A Twist in My Story" are more than worth the price of admission. In fact, there's not a legitimately bad track on the whole album. So why the little rant at the beginning about Vesely going the way of Dashboard?

The most disappointing part of this release is the re-recordings. For one, it seems like somewhat of a copout to just re-record old songs. Really, that's three less new songs that Vesely had to write and that we got to hear. But more than that, some of the re-recordings just sound so lifeless when compared to their originals. Now, I'm not just some fanboy that indiscriminately prefers old over new.

I am obsessed with this albumn, I listen to it every day. The lyrics to each song are really meaningful and the vocals, music, etc. fit it perfectly. If you've heard the single "Fall for You" and enjoyed it, this entire CD is similar to that single. You can also keep it on low at work all day!

I heard Secondhand Serenade a few times on Pandora and liked them so much that I purchased this album. I was dissappointed with the quality of sound... it almost sounds like the instrumentals were too loud. It sounded much better streaming over Pandora for some reason. Perhaps this is just an isolated incident, but love their music - the sound quality just sounds off.

I'm coming at this review knowing that there are many secondhand serenade fans in this world who are going to dislike this cd, and who are going to wonder why John Vesely decided to go the pop/rock rout. I myself was worried before I got this cd because I personally did not want to see Secondhand Serenade become just another group that blends in with every other pop/rock band in the world. Thankfully he didnt necesarially do that.

Really I wish he would have stuck with the same old same old acoustic that had characterized John Vesely on Awake. It was something unique, something I could love for the insightful lyrics, as well as the sheer musical value. Instead Twist in My Story really lost the depth and musical harmony that I loved in Awake. But...

Four Stars, because its still an Amazing CD, his new sound still appeals to me, and Its John Vesely through and through. I would have given him five because I really dont mind what he is doing, I just wish he would have had more of a balance with the acoustic songs he is known for.

I discovered Secondhand on MySpace & fell in love with the tune Fall For You. I got curious, so checked out the other tunes on the album and was pleased to find others that were really good. While some of the lyrics do kind of follow the angsty teen formula, the tunes and lyrics do work well together. I'm not quite understanding some of the haters out there. If not your cup of tea, that;s cool, but why be so angsty over an artist you don't like? Seems like a waste of energy to me. Anyway, I like the tunes and have begun to check out the more recent albums too. I hope to see a new album soon.

I bought this cd for my two teenage daughters, aged 16 and 13, and they just love it! I had never heard of this group before, but after listening to it in the car with them, I am now a fan as well. It was a nice change of pace from the music they usually listen to, the kind of music that screams at you and (adults) can't understand what is being said. This is a great cd, and now I'm thinking about buying a copy for myself.

I fell in love with Fall for You and I knew I had to get this CD. It doesn't disappoint. I love the orchestration or all the songs. Beautiful lyrics with amazing vocals. Your Call, Like A Knife, two more of my favorits on the CD. It doesn't disappoint. I'm eagerly awaiting the release of his new CD Hear Me Now in August.
