Blue October Doesn't Disappoint .....,
This review is from: Approaching Normal (Audio CD)
This album is well worth the purchase. There really seems to be something for every kind of Blue October fan out there. Those who like the harder sound of " James " and " Drilled a Wire Through my Cheek," will love the rage felt in " Dirt Room" and " The End." Fans who lean more towards songs like " Calling You " might like " My Never " or " Should Be Loved." Some of my favorite songs form Justin and company are the ones that deal with Justin's personal life and struggles. " HRSA" and " Independently Happy" are two of my favorite songs to turn up while I scream at the top of my lungs. Some of the more personal songs on this record seem to be " Weight of the World, " " Say It," and " Blue Does."
Most fans have heard "Weight of the World" from the live release, " Argue with a Tree." The studio version sounds amazing and the background noise of ambulances and hotel staff knocking at the door really set the scene for the song nicely. Some of the other tracks were also heard live during Justin's " 5591" tour, and "My Never" was played during the Breaking Dawn Tour.
All Blue October fans must add this album to their collection. If you haven't heard of Blue October then I also suggest you check out the other releases :
The Answers, Consent to Treatment, History For Sale, Argue with a Tree, and Foiled.
