Around the time that Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros released Up From Below, I read in the music press that singer-visionary Alex Ebert had to go to rehab and get clean and sober before he could create the Edward Sharpe mythos and make this wild dreamy happy music. When I finally got to see this band's live show on the Railroad Revival Tour, I couldn't help being alarmed by Alex's aura of frantic and antics of folly. If this isn't a relapse, it must be some old-time religion.

When gathered as a band, they're not just messengers of love, they're old school troubadours, and they are also poets, painters, photographers, and chefs. On the follow-up album Here, we see some solid evidence that it's not bad drugs but good religion that's cascading all over my ears.

The record shifts from subtle woozy hypnotic gospel pop to overt folksy gospel revival, channeling a mystical mashup of Johnny and June Cash meets John and Yoko with mild dashes of Jack and Meg meets Sonny and Cher. It's all Up With People meets the Allman Brothers down at the groovy altar call. Permanent summer camp is in session, and we're all drunk on the non-alcoholic communion grape juice.

"Man On Fire" launches the ritual with a simple, profound, and grandiose request: "I want the whole damn world/To come dance with me." And the pop ambiance, people's message, and energizing-mesmerizing quality of the band's live shows actually make that possible.

"That's What's Up" reminds us that Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros are still what's up. But it also reassures us that "Home,"Alex's epic duet with Jade Castrinos on the first album, was by no means a fluke. These two can sing to each other in ways that feel more than real.

Really? I know negative reviews tend to be unpopular here, but either this band has lost something or I've lost the ability to appreciate them. Whereas 2009's "Up From Below" had a plethora of irresistible chant-along folk-rock choral epics and was packed with infectious harmonies & addictive melodies couched in big open-hearted anthems, "Here" seems thin and uninspired by comparison. These are down-home hippy commune sing-a-long folk/Americana/gospel tunes with hand-clapping, two-step, crowded back-porch rhythms and dreamy, quasi-religious lyrics. The album really just fails to materialize into anything meaningful or entertaining. Sometimes, at its best, it reminds of the Polyphonic Spree, Dead Man's Bones, Antony and the Johnsons. Mostly, it's just boring. Okay, I guess you can tell I'm disappointed. Ready for the backlash & negative votes.

I'll admit that I didn't get this album for myself, it was more for my wife. But, we both enjoyed the first album for the same reasons. It was energetic, it was fun, it was full of life. Musically, it wasn't spectacular, but it was written well enough to make an overall good album with a good feel and a great sound. Then comes the second album with this project of Ebert, Here. With all of the life and fun heard in the first album, it shouldn't be a surprise that both my wife and I quickly wrote this album off. All of the good from the first album, it wasn't here on... Here. Whereas Up from Below was energetic, fun and lively, Here just seems tepid at best. Sure, the sound (genre[s], if you will) is pretty similar, even if some new direction was taken. The musicality is about the same. But, like how we all get after a long, tiring day, it's like Ebert and Co. just didn't have them any energy left for any more. Then again, some might see it differently, they might say Ebert and Co. grew up, matured, and just left the fun days (read: Up from Below) behind them; in that case, they left behind exactly what I liked about them in the first place. I can see why some would laud this album, but if you happen to only like the first album for the same reasons as my wife and I, I'd steer clear of this. Without the energy of Up from Below, Here is just mediocre.

Oh, and another review used the phrase "dialed it in." To that I say: EXACTLY!

It has been almost three years since Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros released their debut album. For those of you who had the pleasure of hearing it, the hit single "Home" is likely still stuck in your head. With their long-awaited follow-up record finally here, the biggest question seemed to be as to whether they would be able to build upon their success with a now familiar audience. Unfortunately for Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, that answer is likely no.

Much like Arcade Fire and The Polyphonic Spree, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros are not lacking when it comes to band members. With 11 members at last count, Alex Ebert, the band's lead singer, and company make each song feel like a sing-along. Sometimes they harmonize and sometimes they just throw in the occasional whistle or hoot in the background to add a live feel to their studio recordings, but each member plays a crucial role and helps the music to stand out from a standard four-piece rock band.

Although the number of members makes them relatively unique, to get radio play, the songs have to be more than just unique, they have to be catchy; that is where Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros fall short. "Here" is not a bad record. In fact, as an album, "Here" is significantly more consistent and enjoyable from start to finish than "Up From Below" was in 2009. However, there is one extremely significant missing piece and that is a standout single.

"Home" still receives a great deal of radio play even today because it is completely engaging. It is almost as if you can hear each member of the band smiling as they sing.
