Considering this new Candlebox cd was recorded in a mere 17 days between recent tours, I'd say they did a pretty darn good job on it. I really enjoyed their previous recording "Into the Sun" far more than I ever expected, so hopes were high that this new recording would equal or surpass that cd.

I'm usually a person who needs at least 3 good songs on a cd to justify me buying it, but after enjoying their last effort so much I just jumped right in with this new cd. And I am not disappointed. "Love Stories" easily surpasses that magic 3 song mark. Of the 9 new songs I must say that 5 of them really grabbed me upon first listen. "Youth in Revolt", "Sweet Summertime", "Believe in It", "Turn Your Heart Around" and "Baby Love Me" are definitely worth the price of admission for all old or new Candlebox fans alike. The song called "Them Eyes" is another solid song with a very bluesy groove to it.....(starting to dig this one a lot more with each listen). Another song "Lifelike Song" has a cool crunchy guitar riff thats beginning to grow on me too. That makes 6-7 great tunes in my opinion. The other songs on the cd are good but not overly impressive. This cd as with their other recordings is a mixture of songs blended with rock, pop and blues with Kevin's silky voice sprinkled over it all.

As for the 5 bonus re-recordings of older songs, I'd say that they were all done very well. Not altering or messing with the formula or sound that made them so great in the first place was precisely what they did. Given the fact that 4 of those 5 were originally released in 1993, and here we are 19 years later listening to those originals redone and how well they still sound should be a testament to how excellent the band still is and also how great a voice Kevin still has.

I think a lot of what the guy who gave these 3 stars said was logical. I like better than Lucy, but sure it is quite as good as others, and yes, Into the Sun was great. The Cd could have had a few more original songs as it is not like the songs are super long. But you know what, many say Slayer's Angel of Death is one of greatest thrash cds, and yet that clocks in like a 1/2 hr. The CD also could be heavier or more instrumental like Breathe Me In, but there are a few that do rock out.

But with all the said, I think all the new songs are good. Not a bad track on here and some real good ones. I think Kevin sounds great, but then again he always does. The more I keep cranking this out, the one I like it. I guess it sounds like a more mature Candlebox in some respects. And in the rock world, this is honestly one of the best things out there. I'm usually happy with 3-5 good songs on a cd and I got 9, plus reversions of some classics. Great CD

Amazing album, Candlebox continues to grow and progress!! Some really great melodic tunes. Sweet Summertime, Youth in Revolt and the first single Believe in it, just great rocking songs. The re recording of the older tunes are good, not too much different, Kind of sound sonically heavier, and just like live versions pretty much. The last track Out here all night is a cover tune they were playing a few years ago, and it was a nice surprise to hear that recorded!! Thanks guys...keep on keepin on!

I have been a Candlebox fan since the first album, which I received for Christmas 20 years ago. I've never quite been sure why they haven't been more popular. Every album is rock solid, and this one is no exception. The first nine songs are the new ones, and there are some absolute gems here. Baby Love Me is my favorite so far. Super catchy, slow in spots, but builds to a rocking chorus. Most of the new songs are catchy enough they rotate through my head when I'm not listening to the CD. They would all fit in seamlessly on Into the Sun. As for the five re-recorded songs, they're not different enough that I really understand why they bothered to re-record them. But they're all good songs and it's nice to hear them again, so I won't take off points for including them.

If you're a Candlebox fan, this album is right on par with all of their other stuff. If you're not, you should give this a listen. It might hook you. This is just good rock and roll.

5 Starz for the BOX! First Off, I have been a fan of this band from day 1 (1993) and ever since their first release hearing the emotion Kevin Martin delivers lyrically had me hooked. Hooked on style, sound and performance. Talking those attributes into consideration my opinion may though some will say NO I DON'T AGREE WITH YOU. Listen to this bands music again, and keep listening. You'll come to find out what I mean.

That said lets talk about this recording:
I will get the re-recordings outta the way; Far Behind, You, Cover Me, Change, and Simple Lessons (all worthy songs to re-record) What makes these top notch, is that the band stayed true to the originals and for that I Thank you! Re-recording and re-making the sound and vocals to what could be considered masterpieces is ridiculous! So, if you loved the originals of these then you won't be disappointed. I bought this CD at BBY using their $2 promo coupon, so for thes 5 songs the .58c is well worth it.

Now for the new recordings:
A Youth in Revolt: pretty Gracious Few-like, full of energy and moving. It has a sort of political view/message which is sorely missing in music these days.

Sweet Summertime: If this song doesn't make you think back to a moving memory or of Missing that someone in the past or of the current listen, lay down, close your eyes and smile.

Believe In It: "One thing we need in this world is Love and Patience" how true is this statement? Put this in a song and sing it like a religion, that's what this song is!

She Come Over: A love story of sorts and it sounds like one with this upbeat tempo song.
