I haven't listened to collective soul in years, not since the "dosage" era, anyway. They are one of those GREAT bands that have somehow faded into mainstream obscurity over the years, through no fault of their own. Their choice for an album cover alone signified "something different" for them, and so, I decided to give it a listen (having ignored the "blender" and "youth" albums previously), and it was a surprisingly pleasant one.
There's just something wonderful about this record as a whole package (from the record name, to the album cover, to the lyrics and music of the songs themselves) that I can't properly describe.
I would recommend this to any collective soul fan, avid or occasional, or anyone else who's forgotten the truly great, underrated bands of our age (I grew up in the 90's).
I recommend the following tracks: New Vibration, What I Can Give You, Bearing Witness, Georgia Girl, Adored
