5.0 out of 5 stars Best Rock Album of 2004 November 25, 2004
By R.J.
Format:Audio CD
Without a doubt, I am completely in love with this album. In my 40+ years of intense devotion to Rock & Roll listening, living and agonizing over, this record takes front and center for 2004. Last year, Evanescence stole my heart, and rightfully won a pair of Grammys. This year had better be the Grammy year for Earshot, or I'll be pissed. The production of this album is gorgeous. The guitar tone is deep and rich, the drumming is exciting. And the vocals really sing to me. I love the character in Wil Martin's voice. And the lyrics are absolute poetry. This is one of those addictive albums that you cannot take out of your CD changer. The music on this record just sticks to your ribs. It reverberates in your mind. It speaks volumes for a lifetime of pain and disappointment. And for all of my life's experiences, I too just want to thank you for all the tears I've cried.

3.0 out of 5 stars Two January 8, 2005
Format:Audio CD
It's hard to avoid the Tool comparisons when talking about Earshot. The style of guitar playing and Wil Martin's vocals at specific points do call to mind one band fronted by Maynard James Keenan, and it's easy for people to write Earshot off as a wannabe Tool clone, but to do so would be ignorant. Tool's superior musical ability aside, Earshot is quite obviously shooting for radio-friendly hard rock in the same vein as Soil or Stereomud, and in that light, Earshot does well. Tracks like Wait, Down, and Control are melodically catchy and heavy at the same time, and the album as a whole does a great job of keeping the listener entertained. There is the unfortunate problem of sameness among tracks, but it never becomes a serious problem, perhaps due to a combination of the skill of the band and the fast pace of the album. The band members know their strengths, and never seem to excess, instead choosing to keep each song as short and tight as possible. The one deviation from the heavy rock course is Should've Been There, an acoustic number that seems to be a staple of many nu-metal bands at this point in time. However, unlike their peers, Earshot chooses not to venture into a hokey love ballad, and instead creates a pleading piece about seperation. This brings us back to the subject of Wil Martin, who may briefly sound like Keenan at some moments, but is mostly holding his own, while always sounding honest and believable in his rantings. While Earshot sometimes yanks pages out of the big nu-metal songbook, they do pull off their cliches, making Two a solid choice for fans of the genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good Cd January 21, 2005
By Joel L.
Format:Audio CD
unfortunatley I'd give this CD only a 3.5 stars...but I guess I'll give it 4 since it is a VAST improvement from their first CD "Letting Go."

I wasn't a big fan of the first one to be honest...I dled it and deleted after I listened...It sounded monotone and had no variety or creativity...

This CD definatley improves upon the previous CD a lot! However, I only found half of the Cd to be any good still...grrr

(Wait, Tongue-Tied, Someone, Rotten-inside, Again, Control...)

That's it...the rest are rather unemotional and pathetic...

Not a bad 2nd Cd...hopefully they'll get enough $$ to try a third time...

I'm going to rate each song here. But before I do that, I just wanted to say that the first time I listened to this CD, I couldn't get into any of the songs. What I realized though was that the first time I listened I was actually feeling really happy about something. Your opinions on the songs will change depending on the mood you're in. What I mean is, the next time I felt depressed, enraged, pissed off, or frustrated when I listened..I started to like some of these songs a lot more than when listening to them in a neutral or positive state of mind. Almost all of the lyrics sound unhappy in every single song here, so if you're generally a happy person, this CD may not be your cup of tea.

1. Wait - Great song, good beat, actually has a motivational and hopeful theme to it in its excellent chorus. It's no surprise this was the first single. - 5/5

2. Tongue Tied - Very dark song with some incredibly depressing/frustrated lyrics. Mediocre sounding chorus though. This is one of the songs I generally didn't like UNLESS I listened to it while pissed off or depressed. - 2/5 or 3/5 if you're unhappy

3. Fall Apart - This song is depressing but the way the verses are sung in this track really sounds great, especially the second verse. The chorus, on the other hand doesn't sound so hot. Fortunately the awesome breakdown at 2:45 makes up for this. - 4/5

4. Someone - This one, like Fall Apart, also has excellent sounding verses but okay chorus. The guitar and drumwork is awesome though (much better than Fall Apart's). The chorus in this song actually shows signs of hope but it's not as catchy as the chorus in Wait is. Good progressive rock though. This one ended up being the second single, probably because it's similar to Wait. - 4/5

5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Solid February 8, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Every single song on this album could be a single. Some better singles than others, but this is still a verid solid album offering a full banquet for your money's worth.

The album is, like another said, depressing alternative metal. It's funny that they do this, though, when the style/genre of music they play is almost happy.

If you're looking for something hard that will make you feel like you aren't a poser or a sissy, this probably isn't the right album for you. But if you just want to sing along with some catchy hard riffs without having to beat yourself with the new Creed crap, this is damn well awesome.

I'd recommend this CD to those who liked the new Chevelle CD at least slightly. For older fans of Earshot, this album is way better, but it is a little less on the dark side. I guess I'd say Earshot either matured or sold out on this album. Either way, it was a wise choice.

Listen to a few of the samples Amazon offers next to the track list. Judge for yourself.

'Two' by Earshot is one of the most clean cut albums I've listened to in a long time, with only 'Should've Been There' regularly being skipped, every other song is a real gem. Read more
