Remember the days when good rock was part of popular music. Things have changed a lot since the early and mid 90's, for the worse. Remember when bands like Candlebox, Live, Pearl Jam, Better Than Ezra, Counting Crows, Collective Soul, etc. ruled the airwaves. Unfortunately, while many of these bands are now making just as good if not better records today, they are now considered as the bands "that used to be good". Enough complaining, now onto the review of this CD.
Candlebox's self-titled debut starts off with the thunderous drumbeats of "Don't You" to get the listener ready for a wonderful ride through the slow to fast, soft to loud songs that encompass Kevin Martin's raw, spine tingling vocals along with Peter Klett's brilliant and distinct guitar work. Next is "Change", which is a great break-up song (from personal experience), followed by the anti-drug anthem "You". "Far-behind" is a classic whose lyrics are many times taken for granted. "Arrow" is a flat out rocker with heavy guitars. "Rain", all 6:58 min, shows the bands musical range, that includes a funky-groove complimented by Martin's singing style and some screeching guitar solos. The CD wraps up perfectly with two amazing acoustic songs, "Cover Me" and "He Calls Home". "Cover Me" starts off with a great acoustic riff and then totally explodes into the chorus. "He Calls Home" is a bit softer with a circling chorus. Just when you think the song is over, Kevin Martin's voice soars for one more minute to wrap up the album.
Oh Yeah, did I mention that I highly recommend this CD to everyone, especially those kids nowadays who think 3 Doors Down is rock music and that Fred Durst is a genious.

Candlebox's self-titled debut album is really great. A few listens and you'll be hooked - but there are 2 catches: one, you have to have an open mind about what rock music can and should be; and two, you have to be at least mildly intrigued by and interested in blues rock. Bcuz that's what Candlebox is, essentially. They're a kind of modern blues-rock, mixed with hard rock. Forget people who say that Candlebox is "grunge" - they really aren't. The only reason they're labeled as such is bcuz they were based outta Seattle (although I don't think any of the 4 original members were even initially from there). But, if you listen to any of their 3 albums, you'll realize that Candlebox is nothing like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, A-in-C, or any other rock group smacked with the grunge label. No, Candlebox is very different, very unique, and very good! Come on, try some of their songs. After you get used to their style, you'll definitely fall in love with (or at least be impressed by) such gems as "You", "Far Behind", "Rain", "Cover Me", and "He Calls Home", to name a few. And if you let it, Kevin Martin's voice will send pleasant chills up and down your spine! :) So onward, my rock music friends and fans: try Candlebox. And if you find you like them, by all means go on to "Lucy" and "Happy Pills". But before you do so, read my other reviews for tips! ;)
(By the way, if you're curious, the only reason why this album doesn't get 5 stars is bcuz - in my humble opinion - "Happy Pills" is a better album and thus much more worthy of the complete honor.)

There are few albums that hold ground that are not deemed worthy by the masses...so I ask myself: Why are people reviewing the album (when will that moniker die once and for all) after 11 years? It holds true...sure there are bits that mimic the sound at the time. Of course one can hear the influences of Pearl Jam and Sound Garden but can you really say they copped them? Grunge was here and gone because it was labeled, commercialized and classified. Once I saw Team Spirit on MTV I knew it would be gone before it was here...But...listen to some alternative bands from the 90s to today...little grungy no?

Again, great music lasts the test of time. This one...from beginning to end still provokes goose bumps and I bet you can pass it off on your 14 year old son as a new...very cool...alternative band. Take it for a spin with no prejudices, if you like rock it will do for you as it did for me.

Candlebox rises from a genre that is hardly original, even back in '93 when this CD was released, to bring us a stellar self titled disc.
From the opening blasting riff of "Don't You" it is pretty obvious what you are in for on this disc. Kevin Martin's emotion filled screams are relentless in getting his point across and Peter Klett's guitar is, at times, amazing. After this album got quite huge, Guitar World named Klett best new guitarist; and rightly so.
The opener, "Don't You" is a kick-axx rock and roll song. "Change" starts off a mellow quiet tune, leading into a nitrous burning, angry tune fuelled by the basic three chord progression and Kevin Martin's vocals.
I've never understood why "You" was a big hit. It's a decent song, but I've always found it a snoozer compared to the other songs on here.
"No Sense" is an ok song, the bright spot being the solo. Peter Klett really lets go with an extremely bluesy offering for the first half. After recording this part of the solo, Peter Klett said that Kevin Martin felt compelled to scream, "I AM THE LIZARD KING!" Kind of a testament to the solo.
By playing "Far Behind" you run the risk of getting a lot of sap on your CD player. Still, I really enjoy this song. Peter Klett lets his imagination go on the opening intro to the song and Kevin Martin relies on some more subdued vocals for a more sombre effect; both guys letting go in the chorus and at the end for a tortured result.
"Blossom" is a slower, subdued, rambling piece while "Arrow" is another fuel injected burner.
"Rain" is one of my favorite tracks here. The verses on this song are flat-out blues. There's no denying it here.
