Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

Review

Although Roland has honed his pleasantly raspy voice to a more distinctive growl, no amount of craft can mask his generally hollow lyrics. -- People

There are plenty [of] pop touchdowns in the Dosage game. -- Entertainment Weekly

4.0 out of 5 stars Love this album May 25 2013
By Edgar
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Item arrived a day late - time frame provided was between May 15 - 23. Although the the CD still looked new and the entire package was still sealed in plastic, the crystal case had numerous cracks front and back. I could probably blame it to bad handling by Canada Post, but then again maybe it was sold cheap because the case was pretty banged up already. In any case, that was a bit of a letdown, and was worried that the CD iteslf may have been damaged as well. There was no scratch when I inspected it, and all the songs played without a skip, so that was ok.

This is my favourite CS album, with Disciplined Breakdown a close second. Run is one of my most favourite songs ever, it takes me back to my college days.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bonus 'HyperCD' track DOES NOT work July 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
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...

Quickly, its terrific, i can't get enough of collective soul. I could listen to them every day because each and every cd just seems to be a perfect blend. I have never been disappointed with a cd or even a single song.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dosage Delivers! March 19 2004
By Laura
Format:Audio CD
My second favourite Collective Soul CD and there's a damn good reason why. This CD is packed with rock songs with a more light sound. 'Compliment' is close to the best rock song I've ever heard. Every song is brilliant, especially 'Needs', a perfect song about independence. Definitely recommended.

By Serge

Collective Soul are without doubt a great band. This album is good from the beginning to the end. They are great musicians, Ross Childress a great lead guitarist and Ed Roland with a fantastic voice!! Listen carefully to songs like Run and Crown, you can't help yourself to like those songs! Hats off to Collective Soul on a perfect album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Collective Soul does it again Dec 17 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have all of Collective soul's albums to date and I can honestly say they have not written a bad song in their career. This album continues that tradition in giving us 11 more great songs. This band just can't go wrong. In my opinion Collective Soul does not get nearly enough recognition for thier talent and song-writing ability. All of the songs on this album are good but the ones that really stand out are Heavy, Needs, Slow, Run, and the incredible ending song Crown. It also has a bonus track of She Said, which is also a good tune. I would recomend this album to any moderate rock fan. Just another great release.
