I love Our Lady Peace and, as a huge fan, I own every cd. I love OLP's first four cds the best and the last four have seemed much... tamer. Curve is no different. My favourite song on Curve is "Heavyweight" and I'd hoped I would love the other songs just as much, but no, Curve isn't like previous albums where I find hidden gems not played on the radio (though I rather enjoyed "Fire in the Henhouse" since it sounded a bit more like the old and beloved OLP). I miss Raine's grungy vocals from OLP's earliest cds, no songs on Curve are reminiscent of "Superman's Dead". Curve is definitely more mainstream than OLP's older albums, with no grunge and little rock, it has an experimental sound mixed with ballads and lots of pop. A decent cd, but a bit of a disappointment for fans like me wishing for a return to rock.
