Product Description


For all its insouciant cheer, 14:59 is the sound of a band resigned to the possibility that they may be one-hit wunderkinds and that the 2 million fans who bought their last album may have moved on. -- Entertainment Weekly

The title of this second effort whimsically acknowledges its waning 15 minutes of fame, but the meter could run longer on the strength of Every Morning, a calculated repeat of Fly's upbeat formula. -- USA Today

Try as they do to inject grit into their sound, Sugar Ray's catchy tunes are at heart as sun-kissed as McGrath's bleached blond hair and the streets of their hometown. -- People


These Southern California frat rockers have learned what they do best. Gone are the damaged noise-fests that recall a more polished Rage Against the Machine and middle-period Stooges. Filling those spots are light-hearted ditties such as "Even Though" and "Falls Apart" that boast tropical guitar flourishes and almost Beatlesque harmonies. On 1997's Floored, the breeziness of "Fly" was the exception; on 14:59, it is the rule. Sugar Ray have cleaned up, sanitized, and civilized themselves, which might not be a bad thing in terms of accessibility and airplay. Some fans, however, might miss the hard-partying, screaming misanthropes of yore. And even the inclusion of old-school rapper KRS-One on "Live & Direct" doesn't make up for Sugar Ray's loss of innocence--although their shimmering cover of Steve Miller's "Abracadabra" inspires affection. Another saving grace is that they haven't lost their sense of humour, dubbing the album 14:59 as a homage to Andy Warhol's 15 fleeting minutes of fame. It would be an error, however, to conclude that Sugar Ray's hourglass is running out. --Jaan Uhelszki

5.0 out of 5 stars Re-Invented Nov. 7 2003
Format:Audio CD
Madonna reinvents her music and image all the time, and few people give her a lot of static about it. Sugar Ray does it and they lose 'fans'. Welcome to the REAL music world, if you constantly do the same thing with different words, you'll get old fast, look at Boyzone.
This album is completely different that "Lemonade & Brownies" and "Floored". Sugar Ray is much mellower. The heavy rock guitar work is replaced with Mark McGrath's acoustic guitar.
I really think that album marked in a turning point in the guys' lives, particularly Stan Frazier's. His mother died and the album is dedicated to her.
Hearing "Every Morning" on the radio is what originally prompted me to buy this. I listened to it over and over again. Then "Someday" and "Falls Apart" were in the radio line-up. I listened to them all the time. Finally, I put the CD in and just pushed play. When I listened to it, I 'discovered' "Ode To The Lonely Heart," which really describes the feelings you have after a relationship ends.

5.0 out of 5 stars a change for the better June 20 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"I'm glad sugar ray changed their style of music so it doesn't have a PARENTAL ADVISORY stamped on the front.The only remnant of their "PA" days is the first track New Direction, but it's still a cool song because the lyrics are funny. Every Morning is a great song that is almost "following up" Fly from Floored.
Falls Apart has great lyrics and is a good rock song for those who like Every Morning.Personal Space Invader, one of my favorite songs from the album, with lyrics"Move your big head, it's my way go and get your own", it's simply telling someone to mind their own buisness.Live and Direct is a song with good singing and a little bit of rap by KRS-One.Someday is another good beach party song, following up Fly, Every Morning, and Falls Apart. Aim For Me is an upbeat song with a howl of a wolf to begin it.It also has a bit of western perfarmance by Mark McGrath, the lead singer.Ode to the LonelyHeartedis a good song for a first date, but not for beach parties or skateboarding videos.Burning Dog is a goofy song that tells the tragic tale of a dog who just cannot catch his tail.It's almost a tear puller...Not! Even Though is another beach party song that is great for listening to on long trips to the beach.Abracadabra is a remix, the original song done by Steve Miller. Biggest differenceis DJ Homicide with the turn table. Glory is another cool rock song.The second new direction is a techno-irish song.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Musical Revolution for Sugar Ray March 20 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Ah yes... Sugar Ray's 14:59. It's been four long years since this album's hit stores and it still goes without saying that it truely is one of the best Sugar Ray albums recorded. Many happy-go-lucky punk rockers, however, have labeled this album the epitome of Sugar Ray's musical career and the change of musical scenery is the ongoing cliche of a band's "selling out". Yes, "14:59" doesn't offer the same up-paced, screaming guitar licks from Rodney and the howling of Mark McGrath, but the transition from punk to breezy pop was probably for the best (hey, we all have to grow up sometime...). 14:59 has a lot to offer both musically and lyrically, spanning the musical charts from the Ray's first hit "Every Morning", an ode to one of McGrath's "angels", to the deeply-rooted "Falls Apart", a whisper from a tormented heart. The highlights on this album are seen from the first track until the last, which I will break down with the following:
1. New Direction: a "humble" spoof of 1980's death metal the boys grew up listening to. Possibly the last breath of "Floored" we may see.
2. Every Morning: a good summer anthem of which McGrath pours out lyrics of a long-lost angel, whom must have left her halo in McGrath's bed after the romance was done.
3. Falls Apart: the deepest song on the album. Offers a good tune to follow and strong lyrics from McGrath. The song bursts to pieces in the middle, but nicely comes back together. Good track.
4. Personal Space Invader: an interesting song from beginning to end about those annoying people that always seem to be nosing around in your business. Easily relatable.
5. Live and Direct: this track brings the usual sugar ray sound and adds a little rap by KRS-1. good song.
6. Someday: a slow song of a plea for a getaway with McGrath.

Format:Audio CD
This is the second Sugar Ray album to get airplay on the radio. It offers a huge variety of sounds, melodies, and even genres of music, anywhere from alternative, rock and funk, to soft ballads, funny lyrics and pop sounds. I did not like Sugar Ray before hearing this album, because all of the radio hits are of the softer songs (Ode To The Lonely Heart, Even Though, Every Morning and Someday), but every song is a hit in its own right. The CD starts with a minute long parody of death metal. Any stereotype metal has, is reversed, with phrases like "be nice to cops" and "talk to your grandmother." The second song is a radio hit entitled Every Morning, "there's a halo hanging from my girlfriends bed," it's a nice melody with some Sugar Ray flavor. Falls Apart is more of a rock song with some memorable lyrics like "feels the sting, dries her eyes, finds herself and opens the door inside." Personal Space Invader has a 80s sound that has some funk and video games to add the album. Live & Direct is a nice little bit of hip hop pop, with some turn table scratching, simple and soft guitar strums and a black background singer adding to the flavor of the song. Someday is yet another radio hit, with a soft pop guitar and a simple drum, making the singer's vocals as the main point of this song. Aim For Me is a crazy fast paced, upbeat punk style song, which only lasts for two minutes. Burning Dog, is a silly upbeat song about a mission that a dog has to catch his tail, "all around, back and back, side to side." Abracadabra is a happy feeling love, pop / rock song, "every time you call my name, I heat up like burning flame, kiss me baby, let the fire get higher." Glory is a big rock song, mixed with the pop vocals of the singer about ex girlfriends wanting to steal his glory. New Direction is an instrumental that ends the album with a brief playing of tones, which sounds very similar to polka.

5.0 out of 5 stars This CD is simply the best Sugar Ray CD released.
14:59 is the best Sugar Ray album (in my opinion) that I've ever bought. That's certainly a very impressive statement. Sugar Ray has worked hard to create this 1999 release. Read more
