Far have been one of my favorite bands for a really long time, actually. I saw them on tour in their earlier states, before Immortal/Epic, before everything. They had such a force in their music, it was so amazing. Then I saw this release, Water And Solutions in a local record store, and I picked it up. This music is some of the best you will ever hear, and you will be easily be moved.
The band are all great, especially Shaun, whose guitar work is chaotic, but always ends up being some of the most harmonic I have ever heard. And then, there's Jonah. He is a simple guy, and he is the best lyricist I have ever heard, period. He makes the whole album worth it. All of the lyrics I can relate to, and they are also optimistic and describe events that should be happening in life, but aren't. No one has inspired me more than Far, and I really suggest this if you are into any kind of non-MTV rock.
Overall, Water and Solutions is a hard working, inspirational record. Every song is really exceptionally great, and I mean that honestly, serious. I have heard this called metal, rock, emo, and many more, but in truth, this is one of a kind. I love songs like "Water And Solutions," "Mother Mary," and "Another Way Out," and "Man Overboard." You can fall asleep to this, but this isn't sleepy at all. It is so great I can't explain it. I'm sorry.
This could very well be the best record I have ever purchased, and I am once again totally serious. I listen to this at least every day, and I still love every riff, quote, beat, chorus, and bass lick I hear. Nothing will move you like Far, and that's my basic explaination on why you should buy this album sometime in your life before you die. You will be missing out on finding yourself if you don't.

Far was a band way before their time. Saw them on tour with Deftones in 96 and they blew me away. This cd is a classic and has been one of my top 5 albums for years. Not a bad song on it. If you like indie rock and emo , and want to hear the orignal master at work , it's a must have. The dvd is great for fans like me who miss the band. Check out the singers other work , Onelinedrawing and New End Orignal.

Far is just an amazing band that comes along once in a great while. Much improved from their other outings Far was finally able to perfect their sound and style on "Water and Solutions". The music is much more emotionally-charged and will leave the listener breathless. I cannot say enough about this cd.
Musically this band is a perfect blend of alternative rock, hardcore, some nu-metal and emo creating a sound that is captivating and engaging. The listener cannot help but be moved by the moods that the music expresses. The song structures are neat and tight accompanied by music that is guitar-driven with cool riffs, excellent bass and perfect timed beats. The music can be aggressive or soothing, very tempo-laden and demanding.
Jonah is simply an amazing vocalist. He has an extremely beautiful voice that can be dark and brooding or lighter-edged and charming. His lyrics are poetic and much more emotionally-charged and there is much less screaming. He has definitely evolved into one of the better vocalists out there today.
This cd is another of the few cds that can be listened to from start to finish, although some songs are better than others. "Bury White" and "Water and Solutions" are two amazing songs with brooding choruses. "Mother Mary" is more of a lighter-edged almost poppy sounding song. "The System" starts out kind of slow but ends up being the heaviest song on the cd. "In 2 Again" is a slower but beautiful song. All of the songs are full of emotion and will move the listener in some way or other.
While this is a great cd, unfortunately Far is no more. Still one of the better cds out there today and highly recommended.

This is considerably better than their first album. It has less of a live sound, and every song really does have its own feel. If you've never heard of Far before, I'd definitely recommend this album. They really don't sound that much like the Deftones, though at times singer Jonah Matranga's voice does sound dead-on like Deftones singer Chino Moreno's. Altogether, however, their overall musical bent leans more toward the likes of the Smashing Pumpkins than anybody else, and some of their songs ("Mother Mary" for one) sound a lot more like pop rock than hardcore. If the fact that seemingly everybody who rated this album gave it the highest score possible isn't enough to convince you to buy it, then just listen to the samples.
Unfortunately, Far never did get too popular nationwide, and now that they've broken up, their albums are only going to get more difficult to track down. I'd recommend that you buy this, and buy it now, before it's gone and you miss out. This is one of the best albums I own, by far.

Sometimes there's a band, and I'm talking about Far here, sometimes there's a band that's a little ahead of their time. I remember when this cd came out, Far was lumped in with the Korns and Deftones and praised as an "alt-metal" band. While their longevity is no match for either band, their influence is undeniable. Jonah's soaring vocals make for a perfect singalong anytime this record is on. Naturally, everyone points to the single "Mother Mary" as the highlight of this record. It is but a standout among an album of standouts. Contrary to the review below me, I will not put Far alongside Taking Back Sunday or Rival Schools. Last I checked, this record came out when TBS was in High School, and Rival Schools wasn't even a band yet. Nevertheless, you can hear a lot of Far out there, if you're listening.
