Earlier this week I caught a video on VH1 by Antigone Rising just as I was getting ready for work. I believe the video was for "Don't Look Back". I just loved the harmonies and the catchy melodies. I was quite surprised to find myself enjoying this song because my taste in music is usually off the beaten path from the mainstream. For the rest of the week, the band remained in the back of my thoughts. When I came across a copy of "From the Ground Up" I quickly purchased it (along with a couple of other cds). I really am not much of a country/rock fan. I find most country music irritating and most rock music rather dull. Thank heavens I cannot say that Antigone Rising's music is irritating or dull. The music is a good blend of rock and country. I thought it was interesting that Antigone Rising would work with Starbucks Coffee to put out a live album I(in a studio session with a few fans is more like it). Good way to introduce their music to new fans like myself. I like how raw and unpolished Cassidy's vocals are. Most of the songs I liked. I did think that "Happy Home" was a bit too twangy for my tastes. Singer Cassidy reminded me of Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines whose voice I find rather grating, a lot of the songs on the album tends to go into country more times than I cared to listen to. I wasn't terribly impressed by "Waiting, Watching, Wishing" either. The song did not have the same emotional resonance on me like the other songs did. My favorite songs on the album has to be "Don't Look Back" (co-written with MB20's Rob Thomas), "She's Not Innocent", and "Open Hearts and Doors". I also love the beautiful ballad "Michael" which is about the death of a friend of one of the band members. No matter how many times I have listened to the song, hearing Cassidy sings this song brings tears to my eyes.Read more ›

Antigone Rising... I saw them on the Today show around Christmas, I wasn't really impressed. I kind of bought this album on impulse not really expecting much. Happily, I was very wrong. This is a great Album!

And although there might be inevitable comparisons to Amanda Marshal, and Melissa Ethridge vocally, (I don't think that is a bad thing anyway) the band has an old fashioned fullness of sound that is mostly lacking in today's music, and some very tight harmonies.

Classifying their genre is more complicated than some of the reviewers and critics have made it. The only thing that seems really Country about their sound is the lack of electric instruments, and personally I don't think acoustics actually equals Country. But that leaves the other side of the coin, without electric guitars predominating is it Rock & Roll? I don't know. I'll leave such battles to the kind of purist that said if George Benson sings it isn't Jazz.

What I do know is, I like this album very much, that many of the songs found me trying to sing along by the second playing, that I started calling friends about it after the first playing. If you like the sound of acoustics, if you like well written songs, if you like good harmonies, you ought to enjoy this album very much.

I admit - the name of the band was the first thing that drew me to this CD, where I originally saw it for the first time in a Starbucks. Despite their reputation as the world-conquerors of coffee, they usually also have good music taste. So last night I bought the whole thing off iTunes, and I must say that they're one of the best bands I've heard in a while.

Understand I am a fan of girl rock - if you don't like girls who sing in your rock music, they might not be for you. Every song on this CD is listenable, and I've yet to find one that's not - a rarity in today's market, where I find that most CDs have 2-3 good songs and the rest is filler.

They've got a tight sound, they've got a fun feel, and they've got it together - I truly, highly recommend!

I walked past this cd several times at my local Starbucks before actually purchasing it a week ago. Now it's the only thing I'm listening to in my car. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. My favorite songs are include "Don't Look Back", "Michael". My least favorite is "Happy Home." I would not describe them as country at all. These girls are all about rock with amazing harmonies and melodies. I love musicians that write their own material and this band delivers!

I heard this cd last year in a coffeeshop and really liked it. After I left the coffeeshop, I forgot about them. I recently bought it at a used cd store, plugged it in, and haven't stopped listening to it since. I also bought the KT Tunstall cd, which is amazing.

Buy both...highly recommended!

Bought this along with 11 other CD's at Lakewood WA Goodwill. I am used to being pleasantly surprised by some of the little known gems you can find there like Randy Newman's rock opera based on Faust, Miles Davis version of Porgy & Bess, etc.
I am also a 64-year audiophile with an awesome Marantz, Acoustic Research vintage system.
I love all the heart-rending and moody song lyrics, the powerful singing, the awesome instrument playing. The lead singer, Cassidy, is a powerhouse poet with nuclear chops. Like many of the other reviewers, I think neither the rest of the band nor Cassidy have been as good since they separated.
Neither her solo album, Boheme or their other album, Red, are nearly as addictive!
First song jams brilliantly instrumentally for the first 1:45!!
This is as good as Feist, any Lilith Fair performer.
The sound is holographic Demo quality!! Almost as good as some of my better SACD's.
Can't lose with this CD!!
