Album Review

After the disappointing sales of Disciplined Breakdown, Collective Soul made a move back to the sound that was so successful on their self-titled sophomore effort. Dosage is a step backward into familiar territory, and it invites mixed results. While the singles "Run" and "Heavy" are two of the band's biggest hits in years, much of this album seems to sound slightly more tired than Collective Soul's recent efforts. Collective Soul has always been best when performing a mix of ballads and harder material, and Dosage holds true to that formula, although the ballads (which are not quite as strong as the ballads on previous albums) rule this album. Kicking off with the upbeat "Tremble for My Beloved" and "Heavy," the album quickly slows down and fails to reignite. Only a few of the ballads (among them the hit "Run" from the film Varsity Blues and the mid-tempo "No More, No Less") manage to leave any lasting impression, and the majority of the up-tempo rockers seem like filler. This doesn't mean that Dosage is a weak effort, though, as there is still more than enough here to please fans. Ed Roland continues to grow as a songwriter, and Dosage is another successful set of radio-friendly pop/rock that, while far from radical, is a worthwhile listen.

Customer Reviews

Collective Soul Are The Kings!

This album, released in 1999, increased the great succes for Collective soul, started by their debut, Hints Allegations... and their self-titled second album. This album is where the band show off their brilliant variety in songwriting, from the brilliant heavy rock songs such as Heavy, Generate, No more, no less and then their slow melodic rock, Needs, Compliment and Run. This band is awesome and this is the album confirmed their brilliance and flexibility. Track ratings: Tremble For My Beloved: Brilliant, explosive start, pure rock. 9/10 Heavy: Their true rock anthem if ever they made one. Also listen to the humerous but brilliant lyrics by Ed. 10/10 No more, no less: A brilliant song that starts with a great reverberating drum. Followed by great, inventive lyrics. 9/10 Needs: The song what changed it all from being just a hard roock album. This song is very sad and foot tappingly brilliant at the sam etime. 10/10 Slow: One not so great track can't be bad can it. This song coul;d have been better but is still worthy of download. 8/10 Dandy Life: Bring back Ed! He takes backstage here as Ross Childress goes forward. Not actually as bad as I first thought. 8/10 Run: Don't really know what to think of this one. On one hand it's rhythmic, sad and witty lyrically and on the other its very forgettable. Oh Well. 8/10 Generate: Back on form after a slight slump. This song has great electronic work in it as well as brilliant guitar work. The strater upper for Blender really. 9/10 Compliment: This track is the king of side two! A brilliant track that is both sweet, humourous and sad at the same time. Requires a definite listen. 10/10 Not The One: A great track to end the album on. Well done Collective Soul! 9/10

When Seattle grunge went mainstream, it was only a matter of time before the ripple effect was felt in regions other than the Pacific Northwest. The Georgia-based quintet Collective Soul -- along with fellow inheritors of the then commercially lucrative post-grunge landscape like Live, Bush, and Candlebox -- developed the genre into a more succinct brand of angst, turning the sonic cacophony of bands like Mudhoney and the Melvins into radio-friendly hard rock.
