Product Description


At heart a safe if emotive and catchy middle-of-the-road rock band, Collective Soul up the prescription on Dosage, turning in an 11-song collection that stretches previous aural boundaries with mixed results. The Southern-bred quintet is literary in its lyrical leanings and thoughtful in its deft and dynamic pop-rock songcraft. Programming and keyboards are now part of the group's arsenal. Dosage's production, meanwhile, is handled by singer-guitarist Ed Roland and is exceedingly lively and crisp. The collection is more loose, experimental and modern--and less classic-rock-leaning--than Collective Soul's two previous albums. There's nothing quite in the vein of "Shine" or "Precious Declaration," two memorable, high-impact singles from the band's first two sets, though "Generate," "Heavy," and "Crown" are standouts. Ultimately, Dosage is a cohesive collection of strong songs and a smart step up for the band. It just may insure survival for a group where others of a similar musical ilk--such as Brother Cane and Cry of Love--have floundered. --Katherine Turman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Excellent CD. Not CS's best, but very good!
Note, there are two "bonus" songs on this CD, in a sense. The 11th track, called "Crown" is a bit over 4 minutes long, but continues with silence for a while, then at the 6 minute mark "She Said" starts up; a personal favorite that is also available on the "Scream 2" soundtrack.
The 2nd bonus track requires you to put the disc in your computer and install HyperCD. A HyperCD tune is incomplete on the disc and the software fetches the missing piece from a special website, then re-assembles the data and plays it through a custom CODEC. Unfortunately, the suckers at Atlantic no longer maintain the website... so, Sorry Charlie! The song is called "Almost You". I'd love to hear it someday...

This is probably Collective Soul's best album after the self-titled second album that had a bunch of hits. For sure, it is another case of great musicianship blending "classic" and "modern" elements into a fine pop/rock album.
"Heavy", the first single and second track on this album, epitomizes what this band is about at their best. Meaty guitar track and strong vocals in a very catchy song. "Run" is another single that is moody, melodic, and sweet--vintage slower Collective Soul. "Tremble For My Beloved" gets the album off to an anthemic/rocking start. "Generate" is a catchy, mid-tempo rocker with similar stylings to some of the second album tracks. "Crown" and the hidden track within it end the album with melodic, lush, relaxed stylings.
The flow of this album is one of its strengths. Good mix of rockers and slower tracks, and none of them are fillers. As a whole, a very enjoyable rock album. Great musicianship and sound.

Wow, how can these guys keep churning out all these good songs and raising the bar of their artistic abilities with each release? I don't know how they do it, but I'm glad they do! Dosage is yet another incredible release of rocking tunes and thoughtful ballads. I loved "Tremble for my Beloved" right off the bat - so short on lyrics, but so full of energy!! "Heavy" was a big hit almost everyone knows. "No More No Less" is one of my favorites on this disc - just because it has very intriguing music and its lyrically strong. On my first few listens, "Dandy Life" seemed boring to me, but after many listens it's actually one of my favorite songs here. Everyone has heard "Run" - especially if you watched ABC a few years ago - they used that song a lot in their programming commercials. What I don't understand is why the mass public bought the self-titled CD "Collective Soul", but ignored "Disciplined Breakdown" and "Dosage"?? These two CDs are in my opinion the best of Collective Soul!! Well, it's their loss!!

I guess I could call Collective Soul something of a guilty pleasure - straight-ahead pop, catchy hooks, singable choruses, simple melodies, everything that a music-snob like me is supposed to hate. But I'll admit it. I like a well-done pop tune too, and CS has a supply of 'em seemingly as inexhaustible as Ben Folds's bag of witty one-liners. Sometimes it's nothing more than two-line verses and a quick chorus repeated a couple times, as on "Tremble For My Beloved." Yet, in the middle of it all they've got a great knack for a melody and they can crank up an addictive beat that's hard to let go. And hey, at least the songs aren't as utterly simplistic and tossed-off as Weezer's (which I also listen to).
Dosage, although sporting the weirdest of all their mediocre album covers, was Collective Soul's most accomplished recording at the time. (Haven't heard Blender, so I can't compare.) Underneath the usual ear-candy songcraft there are more keyboards, better production/mixing and more electronic touches than ever before. "Tremble" rides on waves of wah-wah guitars. "Slow" builds a wall of sound big enough to fill your whole listening space. "Crown" slides through to the disc's finish (almost) in a low-key haze of dreamy ambience. Aha, and there's an extra treat - the hidden "She Said" at the end, which floats on a bed of gorgeous strings and another of those excellent choruses. It's an absolute gem.
They're essentially nothing more than a catchy rock band, but Collective Soul has a compelling energy and a talent for strong songs that should keep them going for a while. Those who aren't looking for anything more should be well satisfied.

If you liked "Hints Allegtions And Things Left Unsaid" you won't like this one. But i personally loved it.
TREMBLE FOR MY BELOVED-A cool song with REALLY hard guitar but softer & melodical vocals.
HEAVY-My favorite song on the whole album, it has Ed Roland basically repeating: "All of you're weight. It falls on me. It brings me down" in a deep and rocky voice.
NO MORE, NO LESS-A pop-y song where Ed Roland is talking about being "No more, no less of an angel."
NEEDS-The only song on this album that i hate.
SLOW-A good song (although Ed Roland gets pretty high-pitched with his vocaling).
DANDY LIFE-A good song that sounds diffrent from the rest 'cause it's written by Ross Childress (the lead & rythm guitarist).
RUN-My 2nd favorite on the album, it's a mysterious, melancholy and not nasty song.
GENERATE-Not as bad as "Needs" and not as good as "Heavy" & "Run".
COMPLIMENT-See "No More, No Less."
NOT THE ONE-A good song but not a great one.
CROWN-See "Generate"
Well that's it and i recommend this to you.
