Product Description

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

3.0 out of 5 stars Eh Feb. 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have to start out by saying that everclear is my favorite band, and has been for a good six years now. I read these reviews of people saying 'it's just like sparkle and fade' or 'everclear's getting to the top.' no offense to those of you who wrote these things, but everclear is running out of juice. they still manage to do some good things like 'overwhelming,' but it's nowhere near the levels they were at with 'so much for the afterglow' and 'sparkle and fade.' if you want the real, true everclear rocking out, pick up 'world of noise.' again, this isn't a bad cd, but it's far from everclear's best.

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent attempt March 15 2003
By Allen
Format:Audio CD
Let me start off by saying that I own this CD and I will still occasionally listen to it, an dit really is not that bad of a CD. Now to why it only got three stars.
I've heard so many people say that this is by far the hardest stuff Everclear has done, until I get them to hear Sparkle and Fade or World of Noise. This CD is lacking that edge, most of the songs are angry, however I never really feel the anger.
While not a bad CD, it is still a pop album, no way around that fact. If you're looking for some good hard rock, then go get a copy of World of Noise, or Sparkle and Fade, those are two of the best albums I personally think ever put out. If you are more into So Much for the Afterglow, or Songs From an America Movie Vol. 1 style music you should really love this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars "songs from an american movie, vol. 2" March 6 2003
Format:Audio CD
Everclear is one of those bands that you listen to, and you know exactly what you're gonna get. Their 3-chord pseudo-grunge brand of rock is a patented sound for them. which is why when i first bought this cd, i was flipped upside down. This is not typical everclear music. it's louder, harder and deeper than any previous efforts. the loud spots rock louder, the touching parts touch deeper, the record is an emotional rollercoaster that is both tounge in cheek ('babytalk') and deeply sincere ('the good witch of the north') from start to finish. if this record isnt in your collection, it should be. if it is, you already know exactly what i'm talking about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock it, and rock it hard March 5 2002
By StarFox
Format:Audio CD
The first time I hear "When It All Goes Wrong Again", I knew I had to get this one. Everclear's signature sound has returned on this excellent CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great CD Jan. 12 2002
Format:Audio CD
This record is truely great. I am a huge Everclear fan and I love it. Out of the others, it's not my personal favorite only because the style is different. My favorite songs here are "Rock Star" especially, "The Good Witch of the North," and "Overwhelming," among others. If you're not familiar with Everclear, I'd start with So Much for the Afterglow or Sparkle and Fade and if you've heard those or like more of a rock style of music, then you should buy this CD. The one song with explicit lyrics is footnoted by Art Alexakis, a father himself, and should not be a deciding factor. You can settle with the edited version but I do not recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars More of the best, from the best Oct. 24 2001
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Even if it is kinda corny... Sept. 3 2001
Format:Audio CD
Let's face it: Everclear isn't the toughest of bands, nor are they the hardest, and some might even put them on the pop side. The funny thing is this is their hardest record and it's still kinda poppy. But face this: this CD is damn good. It's filled with some pretty good rock songs that can still rock a party, even if it is poppier than most rock bands. Art can write and sing very well. I recommend this CD.
Favorite songs: When It All Goes Wrong Again, Slide, Baby Talk, Short Blonde Hair, The Good Witch of the North, Halloween Americana, Overwhelming, Song from an American Movie Part 2
