Product Description

Product Description

Collective Soul ~ Collective Soul

Amazon.ca

After the surprising success of "Shine" from his debut effort, Collective Soul honcho Ed Roland told anyone who'd listen how the track was a demo that wasn't even recorded by his "real" band. This self-titled release is the first thing recorded by Collective Soul as a group, and guess what? The sub-Allman Brothers country boogie and ultra-derivative classic-rock riffing proves that "Shine" was a fluke and Roland certainly isn't the best judge of his own material. --Jim DeRogatis

There are several bands and artists that helped rock music survive grunge, but none more than this great band with this classic album. This is the perfect hybrid of modern and classic rock. With 5 (count 'em, 5!) rock radio hits, this album and band made a huge splash on the rock music landscape at a time it was really needed.
Need I rave about such hit tracks as the rockers "Gel" and "Smashing Young Man" or the slower tracks "December" and the absolutely stunning "The World I Know"? These tracks are all modern classics in my book. However, I also have to rave about such tracks as the rocking opener "Simple" (one listen to that when I first played this CD and I knew I was in for a special treat). Another fav is the second to last track "Bleed", a slightly above mid-tempo track with a killer bass line.
Another reviewer referred to this album as progressive rock with an edge. I couldn't agree more. For sure this album stands up as one of the classics of the 1990s decade. Both commercially and musically, this album is a winner.

"Shine" may have catapulted Collective Soul into the national spotlight, but their self titled release in 1995 took the success of Hints, Allegations, and Things Left Unsaid and multiplied them four fold, producing tried and true rock n' roll in the process.
Collective Soul, despite being of accused of being a rip off band, has gone on write and record 8 tracks that have risen to become #1 hits in the 90's. Count 'em - More than Metallica, more than Pearl Jam, more than Radiohead. While "Shine" started their dizzying rate of churning out hits, their self-titled album, which includes favorites like "The World I Know", "December", "Where the River Flows", and "Gel" (all of which hit #1), set the standard for modern rock as we know it. Virtually every track on this album is a must listen, and songs like "December" and "The World I Know" are timeless classics. Sure, some of these songs sound dated- they are over 6 years old. Collective Soul proved they could rock hard when hard rock ruled, but at the same time showed their ability to create timeless classics such as the aforementioned "December" and "The World I Know". While these two songs are definitely the highlights of the CD, songs like "Simple" and "She Gathers Rain" capture the familiar sound that Collective Soul has, in time, made their own. Collective Soul's rhythmic guitar work and hard-edged rock 'n roll were first captured in their self-titled album, which remains they're strongest work to date. In some ways, it seems they stumbled upon a sound that, while being modern, was classic in so many ways. "Simple" exemplifies the riff-rock that Collective Soul fans have grown to love and never tire of, while the laid back, straight forward tune "Reunion" captures the raw soul of one of the greatest bands of the 90's.

From beginning to end Ed Roland and his band crank out hit after hit on this album from soft ballads ("The World I Know") to more powerful hitters ("Untitled" and "Where the River Flows"). The hit single "December" delivers on all accounts with an amazing guitar beat plus lyrics that shine. The very up-beat fast tempo song "Gel" is another great cut. More of the softer ballads come when we get to "When the water falls" and "Reunion", which are more amazing tracks. Reunion sounds a little like December, in which, they use the same guitar line, which is not a bad thing of course. "Bleed", another one of my favorites, hit on all cylinders with the stellar drum loops and guitars. The only flaw in the album, if you can really call it a flaw, was "Collection of Goods". I'm not sure what they were trying to do with this track because the music sounds a bit garbled. Maybe they decided to experiment with a new sound for one track. But in all essesences, with an album that is chock full of hits, it is difficult to choose a favorite. I recommend this album to music fans of all tastes. You will not be disappointed.

This is possible the biggest selling Collective Soul CD and, while I will agree that this was a great CD, it's a shame the masses didn't keep buying with "Disciplined Breakdown" and "Dosage", which in my opinion, are by far the two best CDs they've done. Possibly their best known song "World I Know", it is an acoustical and lyrical masterpiece. "Simple" and "Smashing Young Man" are fun songs to jam to. The thing I love most about Collective Soul is that they can have the best jamming songs along-side some of the most thought-provoking, deep lyrical ballads without any hint of incongruence. I have been a big fan of this band since this CD came out and still am a big fan today. Collective Soul is one of those rare bands that actually have talent - musically and lyrically. Ed Roland is one of the best songwriters I've heard in years. This was a very strong release (especially compared to their debut release) and is a must-have in many music lover's collection.
