iTunes Review

Released four years after 2005’s Healthy In Paranoid Times, Our Lady Peace’s seventh studio album was produced by the band’s singer Raine Maida. Maida has been busy co-writing songs with American Idol’s seventh season winner David Cook, who championed O.L.P. as his biggest influence. The collaboration with Cook also may be why Burn Burn sounds more accessible than any of O.L.P.'s prior works. But though Burn Burn may sound sleeker, the songs are well crafted and show a maturity in content and arrangement. The opening hit “All You Did Was Save My Life” instantly propels O.L.P. into the intelligent arena-rock stratosphere with the likes of U2, Coldplay and Kings Of Leon. “Monkey Brains” is another standout track, bouncing and lulling with the pomp and romance of a Britpop band, not unlike the reunited Verve. “Paper Moon” closes the album — a power ballad that plays with the triumphant feel of a cinematic climax.

Customer Reviews

Nope, sorry

I'm a fan of bands growing and we've grown with a lot of bands from the 1990's. Nine Inch Nails, 311, Smashing Pumpkins, Garbage, No Doubt, and many others played with different styles, wore different hats and never lost their identity. Our Lady Peace not only lost their identity, they've completely lost their soul. Is the really the same band that I used to call one of the best bands in the world? I don't think it is, not anymore. I'm not knocking the mainstream sound they've used on recent albums, because I like actually liked Gravity quite a bit. But being mainstream is no excuse for being as soulless as the lifeless drivel that Lifehouse and Nickelback pollute the airwaves with on a constant basis. Healthy In Paranoid Times was an unforgivable, trite affair and Burn Burn is yet another nail in the coffin. "Dreamland", "Monkey Brains" and "Escape Artist" are the only songs that suggest they even tried and even those would be considered weak tracks on previous records. Raine Maida should be so much better than this. Did Mike Turner's guitar work and Arnold Lanni's production really make that much of a difference in the past? Does that make Gravity's greatness an accident? Either way, I don't hold out any hope for a return to songwriting form.

Wow.

They just continue to get worse with each album. All You Did Was Save My Life sounds like every other Daughtry/David Cook song on the radio. Very commercialized. Nothing like Happiness or Spiritual Machines. Sad.

Over-produced, commercial garbage

Unfortunately, OLP's new album Burn Burn is exceptionally disappointing. Their current sound, starting with HIPT (yes, Gravity was a good album!), belongs more on American Idol that it does on an authentic rock record. It is beginning to become clear that Mike Turner, not Raine, was the heart and soul of OLP. Gravity, the first album without Turner (save for a few songs), teased OLP fans into thinking that they would be just fine wihout him. But as many of the other reviewers have pointed out, Burn Burn sounds like just another commercial "rock" album--think Daughtry, recent Coldplay, and the aforementioned American Idol. And as for the comparisons with U2, please do not be mistaken, this album does not even belong in the same review, let alone sentence, as anything U2 has recorded (and I am no fan of U2's most recent work). It is a shame that OLP, a band with whom so many of us grew up and one that seems to define our younger years with songs like Clumsy and Naveed, has fallen into the abyss of mainstream rock. Their current work is watering down their early masterpieces, which, taken alone, are a collection of unique, well-crafted rock recordings. This is a shame.
