I was leery about purchasing this CD as I don't really care for White Rabbit, which has been getting a lot of airplay on Sirius/XM Octane.

Fortunately, to me, that is the weakest track on this CD.

Overall, I find this to be a very strong recording. With regard to sound, I would describe this recording as a more melodic, power ballad sound similar to Hurt except that the lead singer has a distinctly different voice. All of the songs alternate between hard rock | power ballads with above average lyrics and have less of a "I need anti-depressants" feel than most Hurt songs. Not knocking Hurt, its just that the tone of this recording is more upbeat - while still keeping some anger | angst - than Hurt's style.

All the songs are very listenable, and will likely hold up fairly well to repeated listening.

Nothing earth shatteringly different, but very well played and produced. Definitely worth a purchase IMO.

When I first saw "Egypt Central: White Rabbit" pop up on my XM radio back in February, I did a jig in my car and got stoked for the full release. Upon my first previews of the rest of the tracks, I wasn't overly excited but I hoped that the album as a whole would be better when I got it.

Unfortunately, I can't say that White Rabbit is anywhere near as strong a release as was their debut album. It's not a complete failure, mind you, but as others have also noticed, the lyrics aren't as interesting and the guitar work (IMHO) sorely missing Heath Hindman's and perhaps D'Abaldo's presences. This amounts to a pretty mediocre release from a band who's been known for aggressive, catchy, and unique songs that you can't get out of your head for days. I've listened to White Rabbit only 4 times through now, having had it for over a week (preorder came early at least :-) ), and I find I come back to it not because I'm drawn to it but because I want to love it the way I loved the debut from the very first minute.

Now, I acknowledge that bands have to evolve their sound and message as they grow as a band; this album just feels more like slipping into mainstream than staying on their original "path." 10 Years is another band who has fallen prey to this slide: very unique debut, a still characteristic sophomore with some mainstream sprinkled in for accessibility, and a shamelessly mainstream third album. Don't get me wrong, mainstream doesn't mean BAD, it's just disappointing to see individualism in bands who catch your ear slip into the mold as the industry sinks its teeth into them. (Digital Summer, for example, is a band who has remained dead-center on their independent path set by

Ok, I have read some of the reviews and some people seem genuinely disappointed, but they shouldn't be. To me their first album was good but nothing special aside from "You Make Me Sick". "White Rabbit," is two steps forward from where they were. This is album is evidence of not wanting to release a subpar record. The lyrical content alone has some very very personal and insightful content, I literally mean that some of these songs cut like a meat clever. The isntrumentation is tight although nothing ground breaking, although in this genre of rock and roll it is hard to truely stand out, simply due to the fact that people seem to be more enamored with the weirdo stylings of Lady Ga Ga and Justin Bieber. Egypt Central also fights the abundant trend of everything being synthed to death. When I listen to some other bands they sound like a computer was writing their songs. Everything is electronic and the zips and drum loops are mind numbing. Actual instrumentation is a dying art form if you really think about it. That is not the case here. It's guitars, a bass, and a drum kit in all their natural glory not a lot of crazy gimmickery.

They haven't broken the mold but the lyrical content is that of a demented poet who is seriously afflicted. The lyric, "I wish the sheets would suffocate me" is defintely sad but it is strangely beautiful and poetic. That is a small example of the lyrical creativity that is scattered all over the album. In summary, if you like hard rock with a little insight and want to have an album that you don't feel compelled to skip tracks to get to the good ones then this album is definitely a must buy.

I couldn't wait for this album to come out, it's been a few year wait, and I'm so glad this album is finally out! I've been a fan of Egypt Central for years now. I really like their sound. This is one of my favorite albums of 2011. If you like their self titled album, I'm sure you'll like this one as well. On this album the lyrics just speak to you, and I really like that, honesty in lyrics. I think Egypt Central should be known more than they are. Egypt Central makes amazing music. I could listen to them all day. There is only a few songs on this album that I don't like, but I still rate this album 5 stars, because the rest is so amazing, you can just fall into this album. I hope they are around for along time.

Not sure what the bad reviews are about this is a great album and one of the best of 2011, no filler tracks in my opinion. Ghost Town is the darkest heaveiest song they've done and the whole album sounds more mature than their debut just too bad for the wait but hopefully we won't have to wait as long for the third album.
