Oceansize's "Everyone Into Position" is perfect. It really is. From the churning, heavy drive of "Heaven Alive" to the beautiful "Music For a Nurse", you get a wonderful modern rock album sharpened perfectly to challange the listener and provide neverending entertainment.

There is ambience, there are heavy guitars. There are long songs, there is a mesmerizing three-guitar attack. What more could you ask for? Every song stands apart a piece of art, but when listened to in sequence, is especially awesome. And "Ornament / The Last Wrongs" is one of the best songs I have heard come out of a modern rock band. It's perfect.

This cd should be released in the states in February. So hold tight and get it then! Otherwise, you can pay 30 bucks for the import...(it is worth it...)

I heard a track of this on KEXP and decided to buy it. What an amazing adventure it is. I am a fairly hard core avant-progressive rock fan. My tastes run from Henry Cow to Thinking Plague to Sleepytime Gorilla museum to Meshuggah to Messaien. This album is nothing like any of those but it is not afraid to make full artistic use of advanced rhythms and harmonies. There have been plenty of modern bands to incorporate the strengths of prog rock (Mars Volta, Farquhar, Radiohead, Lush, etc). Oceansize seems to do it in a way that will make it palatable to the common MTv weaned ear. The harmonic tension and release toward the end of the CD is powerful. This deserves to be played at high volume on a great stereo (with real bass).

This album is sensational. Standout track for me is "meredith" with it's seriously sinister feel and lyrics.

These guys really know how to put together deep, emotional landscapes primary driven by the 3 guitar attack.

Comparisons to Sigur ros in the instrumental regard are warranted. The vocals are slightly Daniel johns from silverchair in style. Far more understated. The drumming is excellent, extremely creative. This is worth every cent.

I have listened to this album several times on napster, and i must say that it is outstanding. The sheer scope of the album is impressive enough. But add the fact that every song has intriguing guitar riffs and interesting vocals and you get one of my favorite albums in a while.

The Band shows a considerable amount of diversity in their music. They can go from pounding guitar riffs, to floating music that carries you away to a happy place. Some of the songs sound very much like metal, whereas others are comparable only to pink floyd. In a few songs they actually change the mood of the music mid-song. I really like all the songs except for the final track, which is just a little too long and dragged out. The rest of the album is exceptional, and i am going out to buy it as soon as i can find somewhere that sells it for less than thirty bucks. I really want to know where I can get my hands on a copy of this CD that isn't an import. Anyway, it probably is worth the thirty bucks, but its thirty bucks I don't have.

Oceansize's second album `Everything into Position' did more than just reassure their fans that they didn't want to rely on the success of first album `Effloresce'. The Manchester quintet have grown and matured as a band, creating an album which has expanded their musical horizons as well as creating an unsuspecting fan base along the way. As 4th track `Meredith' appeared in the US TV show `The OC'.

The strength and depth of this album is a clear step up from their debut. The band appears tighter and the songs feel more structured and better developed. The album can be split into two halves with a soft side and a heavy side. The soft side will take you to relaxing and peaceful place, like a January detox. The heavy side on the other hand will make you want to pick up an air guitar and thrash it until your arms are so sore you can't play another note. One thing that is for sure though is that this is great progressive rock music and although they've still got a bit to go before they can reach the accolades of current progressive rock heavyweights Porcupine Tree and The Mars Volta; if they keep up this kind of standard, it won't be long till they are joining them.

The soft side of the album, in my opinion displays their best work to date with the 2 stand out tracks of the album; `Music for a Nurse' and `Ornament/Last Wrongs'. Now you may not realise this but `Music for a Nurse' was used as part of the Orange mobile network provider's advertising campaign on TV. Although it is a good taster of the track, it really does not give this 8 minute plus epic its true glory it so rightfully deserves. There is something about this song. The musical backdrop is one in which many post rock acts would aspire to make.

I was given this album years ago while the band was still together, but had since lost my copy and only had a live recording from the Feed to Feed boxed set. I didn't want that to get dinged up from riding around in my car, and as such have purchased my third copy of the album.

I always have a hard time classifying Oceansize's sound, but I would lean somewhere in the vicinity of melodic prog metal? I think the composition of the album is great (as I consider whole-album composition largely a lost art), and I feel like it flows well between strong driven distortion laden tracks, and ethereal melodic pieces. All in all, a wholly worthwhile investment in music.
