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
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'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.
Happy Apple Poison
Ghost by Your Side

At first I didn't care for the lead singer Michael Shepard's voice. But the music is really good, and I like the very alternative sound. That made me listen to it again. Read morePublished on October 17, 2008 by Danielle "The Book Huntress"
On Lovedrug's shockingly good "Pretend You're Alive", the band did everything right. The songwriting was surprisingly talented, the instrumentation was skilled if not innovative,... Read morePublished on June 9, 2007 by Brian

The first time I heard a Lovedrug song was nearly two years ago. As the opening melodies of "Blackout" drifted through my ears, I was awestruck by the painful beauty that the band... Read morePublished on March 19, 2007 by Nathan Knapp_Voronwë
