The songwriting here is great.

Forget their PR spin about taking a new direction with their music - if you fall for "our last record wasn't quite what we wanted but we're really happy with this one."
This is quintessential Powderfinger, and exactly what we've come to expect from this excellent band. Melodic medium-weight guitar based rock with a few nice balads and the occasional political statement thrown in for good measure. The production is high quality which serves their material and musicianship well. You'd be hard pressed to find another band of their quality with such consistency - their last three albums haven't had a weak moment.
A smart thing they've done is limit the CD to 11 songs, all of which are good. Too often the stuff at the end of a 15 track CD bring the whole thing down a peg.
Now, if they really had tried taking a new direction - and succeeded in doing so - this might have received 5 stars. I'll just have to settle for successful familiarity instead.

I don't remember why I bought this album in the first place, but this morning I loaded it up on my computer and started listening. It's a GREAT record. It's a straight up rock record: a couple of crunchy rock guitars, bass drums, and a tenor singer. You can get that anywhere. But it's the songwriting that makes this record stand out. Powderfinger has come up with some very catchy pop songs to suport their classic rock sound. If you're looking for something that has that radio-rock feel of the 70's but with a modern, today kind of sound, you should buy this record. Yes, it's six years old. I think I'll buy a new one from them too.

i have been a powderfinger fan for 5 years and cannot understand why they have not had hits in britain, maybe they are like a good wine rather than a can of warm fosters! brilliant last 3 albums, more more more!

From one of the few 'yanks' that review powderfinger albums - I must say that after praising their past works, I only have 'VERY good' (vs excellent/awesome) praise for this one. The powdies can rock, for sure, but a fair few of the songs just left me kind of wanting...and I really didn't want to *feel* this way, so I listened to this CD at least 20 times before writing this review, and I still feel the same. Even the somewhat rocky 'treat me like a dog' from Odyssey would be a welcome addition to this ordinary set from a band who I think is...well...one of the best in the WORLD.

So, why do I give it 4 stars? Well, because Powderfinger at (in my opinion) their not-so-best, is still GREAT. What a pain in the butt I can be! But hey, when Bernard and the boys get going, it is hard to resist. 'Beaches', 'On my Mind' and 'Rockin Rocks' are awesome (and what other band can use words like 'lexicon' and get away with it), and yes the CD 'flows' very well from song to song. Guess I was just looking for some more/better slower numbers akin to Odyssey 5 and Internationalist, but heck, these superstars have the all the right in the world to do up a rocker CD like this one, and the stakes were high being the biggest thing since Vegemite in Australia...

For some reason, the Powdies are simply ignored by US radio (except maybe in college), and it is a shame. I think because they are not 'flavor of the month' musically, the US record producers just chose to ignore. The Oils had their chance, but faded into oblivion in the US because all the CD's after 'Diesel and Dust' were just tooo 'Australian'.

After hearing this CD many many many times, in my opinion, the strong tracks on this album are: Love Your Way, Sunsets, Don't Panic, Roll Right By You, How Far Have We Really Come?, Pockets, and A Song Called Everything.
_______________________
HERE ARE THE FOUR SONGS THAT I CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF:

1) My favourite track is "Love Your Way". I think the WHOLE SONG is exceptionally good. It's hauntingly beautiful. It's one of my all-time favourite songs. Sometimes it sends shivers down my spine... here are some of the lyrics:

"And if I prove no good here I'll skip to where I should
It's only an imaginary vigil that we keep
You salvage what you need I'll take the love you leave

I love your way
I can't explain
What made me change

I'm wading in deeper ever deeper as I go
I drown the whole idea as I drift away from you
It's only and imaginary vigil that we keep
You salvage what you need I'll take the love you leave

And as the memory gathers dust, buried in its crust
Are the remains of what we've done and the seeds of what we just begun
And the city glow well it pulses on to the city hum"

2) The next consistently good song (for me) is "Roll Right By You". It is one of the more dynamic songs, and for that I like it. I love the lyrics to this one, for example:

"Are you in the situation to decide whether you really care?....... C'mon you know It's hard to complain about the way you live....... Just think, If the same thing happened to you, would you be, would you be, happy to walk in my shoes?....... I'm already tired of your chronic compassion fatigue....... Do you have the information to decide whether you really care.....
