Everclear ~ Songs From An American Movie Vo

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

*and Craig and Greg. Everclear's 5th full-length album, the follow-up to "Songs from an American Movie Vol. 1, Learning How To Smile" is a harder, more musically aggressive outing than its predecessor, but it's just as good, maybe slightly better. It's just as accessible as the first one, but in a different way. The sound isn't quite as poppy, but the term CATCHY, MELODIC ROCK DONE WITH HEART AND CARE applies here. It works well as a whole, and has great individual moments. Here's a track by track breakdown:
"When It All Goes Wrong Again" is fast-paced and rocks out pretty hard. It's the first single, and the main theme here, from what I gather, is feeling optimistic and pessimistic at the same time about life.
"Slide" opens with a sweet guitar lick and evolves into a tight, RAWK song that is going to sound great live.
"Babytalk" opens with a fonkay Sly & the Family Stone-type riff and the lyrics are mostly spoken. More or less, it's a complaint on how some guys change their demeanor when their girlfriend is near/on the phone. Another rocker that's gonna sound great live.
"Rock Star" is one of my faves on here so far. It's a mocking take on wanting to be a rock star, and, musically, it's one of a good number of songs on here that remind me why I got real into this group in the first place (note: check out the little guitar solo in the middle. Way cool.)
"Short Blonde Hair", lyrically, is sort of the anti-"Rock Star", it's a nice juxtaposition putting the 2 songs back to back. This wouldn't have sounded out of place on "Sparkle and Fade".

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.
