Album Review

Ten years after Candlebox slipped quietly into that good night after the release of Happy Pills, the grunge group returned in 2008 with Into the Sun. Not much had changed with the group in the meantime — the most notable switch being the replacement of bassist Bardi Martin by Adam Kury, but that changed the sound nary a whit, as Candlebox still cranked out grunge with more in common with AOR than Sub Pop. On Into the Sun they even still show a partiality to the loping, echoey minor-key riffs that turned "Far Behind" into a hit, although they often hammer out downstroked riffs pushed a little bit too cleanly through digital processors. They're better off when they go for the ballads — and better the plain-spoken, unapologetic AAA power ballad "Surrendering," which is surprisingly unselfconscious, than "Far Behind" variations like "A Kiss Before."

Customer Reviews

Great album

Such an underrated band. I had lost sight of Candlebox over the years but always came back to their debut album (thank god for shuffle) got an email about concerts in the Uk and quickly bought this album and their newest one.

Kevin Martins voice is quite unique and always struck a chord from the age of about 12 right into my mid 30's now.

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Candlebox rode the grunge bandwagon to multi-platinum success in the early '90s, despite howls of protest from the Seattle faithful who considered their music a watered-down version of the genuine article. To be sure, Candlebox's take on grunge diluted the punk and indie elements inherent in its original form; instead, they were rooted in the bluesy, classic-style hard rock that grunge had ostensibly replaced. Their resulting commercial appeal made them highly suspect in the minds of authenticity-obsessed...
