Everclear ~ Songs From An American Movie Vo

Amazon.ca

If scientists strived to merge crunchy, hook-heavy pop-rock-punk and the super-shiniest production techniques this side of Smashing Pumpkins, the result would probably sound exactly like Everclear's Songs from an American Movie, Vol. 2: Good Time for a Bad Attitude. It's a hit-or-miss outing. On the one hand, it's a step up from the tepid Songs from an American Movie, Vol. 1, and it takes the boys back to the loose but mighty muscularity that made Sparkle and Fade such a delight. Art Alexakis and company take some chances, like the funky groove of "Babytalk" and the ballad to bombast and back again of "Out of My Depth." On the minus side, the production is so slick that there's no friction, and rock music without friction is like, well, like large chunks of this Attitude. Definitely a mixed bag from Everclear. --Jason Josephes

Song by song review of this album. But in a word - AMAZING
1. When it all goes wrong again - great way to start off the album. a hard-hitting rock song.
2. Slide - great song, another personal, intense rocker.
3. babytalk - funny, sarcastic look at relationships, and how the dumbest things can drive people insane. also says something about how men can get emasculated in relationships.
4. rock star - a totally cynical look at being a rock star from someone who has never claimed to be one. lead singer art alexakis preaches the rock and roll dream in a catchy, fun song
5. short blonde hair - the other side of the rock dream. art talks about being weird and feeling different, and how age and rock fame dont always go well together. an anguished, beautiful song
6. misery whip - a creep S&M fantasy song that goes more into the relationship of codependency than the sex part (i hope). i good sequel to heroin girl.
7. out of my depth - another song about when life becomes too out of control. very personal song for art, looking at the life of a guy trying to balance a divorce, a new relationship, raising a daughter, and STILL having to go be in a rock band.
8. Good witch of the north - about art's new girlfriend. maybe the first love song everclear has ever done that doesnt have some sort of depressing, angry, codependent subtext.
9. halloween americana - great instrumental track, in the tradition of el distorto de melodica
10. all f***ed up - amazing song. a nervous breakdown put to music, and a bristling piece of self-loathing. when you hate yourself, everything falls apart.
11. overwhelming - originally on the soundtrack for permanent midnight, and i like that version much more.

"Learning How To Smile" was great and all, but not as good as it could have been. Everclear is known for raw energy and lyrics that are emotional and very personal. But, last time it was too poppy and all sweet and sappy. Not this time around. With this follow-up, Everclear goes for the throat and rips it way through twleve tracks which only quiet down twice. The songs are louder, faster and chock full of lead singer Art Alexakis spitting up lyrics about his too tough life. With songs that go deeply into his psyche like "All F**ked Up" and "Songs From An American Movie, Part 2," Art makes sure we feel his pain, through words and music. And though most of the songs are pretty identical to every Everclear song you've heard before, they still have a unique catchiness to them. "Out Of My Depth" whistles and has acoutic guitars up until it's last two minutes where it thunders an agressive solo and mean chorus. "Slide" has a wicked guitar and "Babytalk," a song about 'whipped' boyfriends, has a nice riff and Art screaming near it's close. The dreamy instrumental "Halloween Americana" and the soft ballad "The Good Witch Of The North" are the album's softest moments and loveliest pieces. The angst behind "Misery Whip" is like Everclear reaching back to 1995's "Sparkle And Fade." "Rock Star" is pure fun, and the single "When It All Goes Wrong Again" is typical Everclear, about depressed, dark lives. This album is pretty simple, but better than the last. It may help Everclear regain it's fame from yesteryears, but if not, it's just because it's Everclear has been mowing the same lawn for far too long.

This really is a 5 star album, but I dropped it one star because, well, a little too much hype so I was hoping for something a little more... loud and angry.
Everclear has always been great at doing really loud and fst paced song about what's wrong with the world and their lives. I absolutely loved all of their CDs ...until Vol. 1, which I didn't like. not only because it was painfully slow and undistorted, but also because it wasn't as melodic as even their loudest songs managed to be.
On to Vol. 2. This was supposed to be their loudest and hardest- rocking CD ever- even the bad said so. So the day it came out, I rushed out and bought it and ran to put it in my CD player. I had at that point never heard When it all goes wrong again, so I played that, and it rocked, but the second one I didn't like that much. I still don't, although I find myself playing it on the guitar sometiems. Oh well. the third one is cool, but by that point I was waiting for something to really kick ...like their first CD. The only two that came close were "Rockstar" and "All F**ked up"
So in short, this CD is great, but if you want to hear Everclear really rocking, check out "world of noise" or "sparkle and fade."
As for good songs on this CD- Rockstar, Short Blonde Hair, Out of my Depth, All F**ked up, and song from an american movie Pt. 2. Overwhelming is kinda cool too, but a little too studio-perfected.
P.S., Every one of these songs starts out boring befoe it gets cool. EVERY SINGLE ONE!!! Arg, it's annoying!!! I just skip the fist 40 seconds on each one.

I had a really good review, but then I lost power before i could send it, so I feel like this review might be a little short-changed, but here goes:
When it all goes wrong again is fun to listen to, but isn't very melodic, although it's a good song. Slide, definitely one of my favorites, has a great alternative sound to it that I really love.
In Babytalk, Art (band's singer/lead guitarist) fools around with some rock/rap that isn't too great when you first listen to it, but it really grows on you. Rockstar, is a really fun song about everyone's dream: being a rockstar. Really a fan favorite.
As for the next track, Short Blonde Hair, I have mixed feelings. When you first listen to it, the first 35 seconds don't sound good, but after that, It's really nice to listen to. One of the great things about everclear is that most (if not all) their songs have real meaning to them. As for Misery Whip, I didn't really like that the first time I listened to it, but that also grows on you.
Out of My Depth is also a pretty good song. It's heavy, but it lightens up with little whistling interludes. There's also the part where it sounds like someone is whistling and gargling at the same time. It's pretty funny. That happens at 2 mins. 35 secs. into the song. As for Good Witch of the North, I never really got into that one. Although it is soothing to listen to. Don't listen to anyone who tries to compare everclear's prior instrumental song (El distorto de Melodica) to this one (Halloween American). This one is a million times better. No exageration. It's just a million times better. I'm not a fan of instrumental songs, but this is really great. Especially a minute and 30 seconds into the song.
