Lovedrug amazes listeners again with the second release of a full-length LP. Pretend, their last album, focused on soft sounds and had few "hard" songs, but all of their music resembled the passion in their band. With this album, Everything Starts Where it Ends, Lovedrug kicks up the passion-notch with focuses more on harder songs that dish out much more emotion (and not to mention professionalism) than on Pretend while still being able to sound like Lovedrug. Although the songs are more rock-based here, the band still is able to maintain the Indie-Rock genre title as with their last album. Sheppard's lyrics are easy to learn and complex to analyze, however they encompass what seems to be all struggles and truths of life, and their music is a perfect backbone to this (David and Mike's grungy yet soft-epicness ring throughout each song). I guarantee this album will play throughout your head during the day according to your thoughts and feelings, because Lovedrug's Everything Starts Where it Ends is a perfect soundtrack to Life. Lovedrug gives life to music and gives music to life.

On a personal note, I remember when these guys played in Orlando back in 2004 with only their mere "Rock N' Roll EP", and it has been really cool to see these guys grow in their musicianship. You won't be disappointed to hear the "dark and lovely"-ness, as one reviewer said, of this album.

From Best to Last:

1. Doomsday & The Echo / Casino Clouds (I can't make a decision here)

2 Salt of the Earth

3. Thieving

4. Castling

5. Happy Apple Poison

6. Pushing the Shine

7. Ghost By Your Side

8. American Swimming Lesson

9. Everything Starts Where it Ends

10. Bleed Together

* "Dancing" not included.

I really REALLY REALLY like this band. I am completely enamored with "Pretend" and so I've been waiting for over 2 years for this amazing singer/songwriter's sophmore release. The cd was released today and I went out and bought it as soon as I could. I ripped open the package, realizing that today could be a huge letdown or a huge celebration.

I'm still mixed but let's just say I am over half way sold on this album. So far the best songs include, "Pushing the Shine", "Thieving", "Ghost by your Side", "Doomsday and the Echo", "Salt of the Earth", and the title track "Everything Starts Where it Ends".

(Thieving is my all-time favorite! But where is the song they sang at the Calvin College show about abortion hair gel??? I want it!!)

Michael is definitely back with the lyrics to this album. They wreak of him, he uses references to angels, red, fawna, ghosts, demons, etc. He has a beautiful and haunting also poetic quality to his writing. Which of course I adore.

I'm only sad about the sound of most of the songs. This band was somewhat edgy and gritty and now it seems it may be a victim of mainstreaming and sounds over polished and somewhat "poppy" which I am not a fan of.

Overall, as this ridiculously long review comes to an end....BUY IT!!! It's still very good, and chock full of the bands spiritual undertones, great piano ballads, and weird little creatures and pics littering the cover peice ( <3 ) Michael doesn't like people ripping (downloading) his band's stuff and it's worth it! BUY "PRETEND" if you don't already have it.

If you like Copeland, Myriad, Coldplay, Muse...you'll love these guys.

I am totally amazed by this album. I stumbled across Lovedrug's video for "Ghost By Your Side" while browsing on You Tube and decided to buy the CD a couple days later. Since then, I haven't stopped listening to it. I'm obsessed - Literally. I have it loaded onto my computer, my iPod, and burned a copy to keep in my car (I told you - obsessed). I would consider myself a harsh music critic, aka, I'm picky and like to attack any flaw in the music that I can find. That said, I have yet to experience any level of dissatisfaction with this album. There is never a dull moment; it is incredibly multifaceted and is a crash of briliant emotional decompression met with glory and ever-present mystery. The band is astonishingly talented. The sound is incendiary and writen with sheer passion. I would definitely recomend this record to anyone. I promise, you will love it.

Lovedrug still has not hit the music scene big but with this release it shouldnt be long. the album begins with two quick fast paced songs in happy apple poioson and pushing the shine. the third track is my favorite, thieving is a beautiful song with great lyrics and captivating melody. This album wraps up with the harder rocking tracks at the end. salt of the earth is a deep song that has a rattling chain in the background, its all very interesting.

This album is fantastic. I liked Pretend You're Alive, but I love Everything Starts Where It Begins. It seems a lot more together and wholly realized than Pretend You're Alive. The best songs are...

Happy Apple Poison

Castling

Thieving

Bleed Together

Dancing

Ghost by Your Side

Salt of the Earth
