Forever Changed is a young band from Florida that recently signed with Floodgate Records. You can't really characterize their sound, but I'd go with Switchfoot-meets-Chevelle-meets-Seven Day Jesus and feel safe. Dan Cole's strong, passionate vocals are right in line with them. Ben O'Rear's guitar work is amazing (though they kind of fake you out with the intro of the first song). These guys sound tight! And when's the last time you actually noticed the drummer in a disc? Well, get prepared to notice everything here.
"The Last Time" starts things with almost a low-key feel at first, and then the music explodes on you. "Encounter" picks up next and keeps you running. Ever heard a band where every guitar solo sounded similar? Not gonna happen here. There are so many little riffs sprinkled throughout the songs you can't get bored.
The title cut is a cry from a broken soul longing to feel something again. If you've ever grown cold inside and watched others excited about their relationship with God, this is how you'd express it.
"Something More" is good, but "Great Divide" has to get you with its lyrics. It's the story of a teenage girl who listens helplessly as her parents scream at each other outside her door. When the father leaves (for good), the song says "She appears to be alive, while dying from the inside out". This is a really emotional song, and it will affect you.
"Romance In Denial" changes pace with a U2 feel. Man, this one got me.Read more ›
Stand out tracks: "The Last Time", "The Great Divide", "Romance & Denial", "Opportunity", and "Knowledge"
1.The Last Time (10/10) Probably my favorite song on the cd. A great faded beginning and also great lyrics. Cool backup guitar during the verses. Also, the bridge has an amazing solo that soon joins in with another one, making two completely awesome solos going at the same time. Every part of this song is fantastic.
2.Encounter (10/10) Another one of the best songs on the cd. Cool riff that appears throughout the song. The verses are very cool with one guitar playing the two power chords and the other palm muting. Very catchy. Again, great lyrics and another great solo (only one guitar this time). Great song.
3.The Need To Feel Alive (8/10) The only thing "eh" about this song is that I think that the lyrics can get a bit corny. Other than that, there's an aweseome guitar intro. Another good rock song.
4.Something More (8/10) Another good rock song with great guitar. Good lyrics.
5.Great Divide (8.5/10) Good theme to the song, that go with good lyrics. Cool palm muting during various parts of the song. Cool guitar riff during bridgeish part of song.
6.Romance In Denial (10/10) Probably my second favorite song on the cd, although it's really hard to decide because they're all so good. The lyrics in this song seem a bit mysterious, making them cool. The bass and drums in verses are awesome, and all the buildups in this song are really cool. The different riffs throughout the song are awesome.Read more ›
