Product Description

Amazon.ca

"This is a song about Susan" is the first line of Everclear's follow-up to the deservedly platinum Sparkle and Fade. That personalization is one of Art Alexakis's greatest gifts to postgrunge rock; rather than float generalized rage over the ever-growing roar of his power trio, he tells you his stories, those of the people around him, some he makes up--and makes them all yours in the end. The development in the music here, from the Beach Boys-style chorale at the top of the title cut to the new wavey jerkiness of "Everything to Everyone" and "Normal Like You," boasts of not only the band's surefootedness but Alexakis's own generosity. The latter is best reflected in "Father of Mine," one of the saddest, most brutal songs about family ever. --Rickey Wright

Not the biggest everclear fan myself, but my wife loves them, and loves all the tracks on this cd. For a couple bucks you can't go wrong, especially when it isn't available on itunes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Most definitely a must-hear Everclear album July 11 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album has been a favorite of mine for 8 years & I am only 19, so it's saying a lot about how timeless the tracks are. Give it a listen, you won't be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars EVERCLEAR-What I Think Dec 30 2003
By Deidre
Format:Audio CD
I bought this cd when I was in the 7th grade (i'm 19 now)I like songs on here especially "I'll Buy You a New Life" ,"Father Of Mine", "Amphetamine","AfterGlow","Everything To Everyone" etc... some of the songs on here though I haven't been able to make it through so that is the reason I give it 3 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars the greatest Dec 12 2003
Format:Audio CD
if i could give this cd 10 stars out of 5, i would. it has been my favorite since the day that i bought it and i listen to it at least once a week.
it's simply fantastic.
it starts out with the title track, starting slow on that beach boys chord and then rocking into the meat of the song.
then comes everything to everyone, about all of those people that do everything they can to be accepted and liked but completely lose themsleves in the process.
next comes ataraxia, leading into normal like you, again emphasizing the difference between those that are 'normal' and those that are not.
after that come the hits-i will buy you a new life, father of mine, and one hit wonder. the first two are good songs, you can here real painful memories coming through. one hit wonder, although some complain that it does not have the depth of other songs, does that to make its meaning clear-'they cannot hurt you unless you let them.' it's a song to pump you up, to remind you that YOU are the one in charge of your life, never to forget that.
el distorto de melodica is a song just to rock out. when you're anger and frustrated and have no words to say what you feel, you turn this on at the highest volume your stereo will play, drown yourself in the rock.
amphetamine, probably my favorite everclear song. it starts on the hard note that el distorto ended on, then slows down by the end, about a girl who's just trying to find her way.
white men in black suits is about not letting the man get you down. you'll always be fighting them, but maybe someday they'll 'find a nice' and go away.
sunflowers is kind of a sad song, but another one of my favorite. you just need to hear it.
why i don't believe in god is another sad one, you just feel so much honest compassion for the kid.

4.0 out of 5 stars A generally strong album with a few warts Aug. 22 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I got "So Much for the Afterglow" at my local library not knowing much about the band. I had only heard the three radio-friendly tunes, "Everthing to Everyone", "I Will Buy You a New Life", and "Father of Mine". I sort of remembered liking those songs (although I have not heard them in awhile), so I gave the album a listen and was pleasantly suprised.
Track 1, So Much for the Afterglow, is a perfect start to the C.D. It opens with a Beach Boy's type sound byte and then morphs into a cheerfully noisy song with occasional clapping and a background chorus. Track 2 is the familiar "Everthing to Everyone". It's my favorite of the three songs that got radio time. Despite the rather negative lyrics, it's quite melodic and definetly one of the better efforts on the CD. Other favorites are Normal Like You which also features a tongue-in-cheek 1950's media intro about some kind of anti-depressant (or so I gleaned from the context). Normal Like You is a cynical yet rather humerous song about shunning normalcy perhaps because "the prozac" dosen't work anymore. This could have easily been another radio hit with the catchy chorus and intriguing lyrics. Track 5 is I Will Buy You a New Life and it stands out on the album as a more laid back, positive and mid-tempo tune. I usually skip it when I listen to the CD because I've heard it many times before. Track 6, Father of Mine, also differs from the other songs in its sensitive content and flowing melody. Again, I would probably like this one more if I hadn't heard it so much on the radio. I didn't like One Hit Wonder immeditely, but it does include an interesting percusssion introduction. I don't care about the lyrics too much and don't really get a strong vibe of emotion from this song.
