Reseña de álbum

Despite its conventional title, Approaching Normal is Blue October's most puzzling release to date. Frontman Justin Furstenfeld jumps overboard on the bulk of these tracks, from the snarling melodrama of "Weight of the World" (where he sounds like Adam Pascal, the hyperbolic rocker from Rent) to the bizarre, Smash Mouth-styled bounce of "Jump Rope." He has an unchecked affinity for drama, for the sort of first-pumping grandeur that very few bands can execute, and his angsty self-loathing turns up some priceless nuggets of post-grunge poetry. "I gained 40 pounds because of you!" Furstenfeld howls during "Say It," before announcing his intention to "cover you in ants, bees, and honey, then take your picture for the cover of our album" during the follow-up tune. He even adopts a British accent for "Kangaroo Cry." Furstenfeld's vocal resemblance to Jack Black is more apparent on these tracks than ever before, and Blue October remain aware of their own absurdities.

Why the hate?

Why is it everytime people listen to something they don't expect from a band they jump to the conclusion that it's "their worst cd ever" or that they "aren't the REAL blue october." Look. This is blue october. they still make amazingly emotional, melodic, well constructed songs that they had made in their older songs. Yes, there sound isn't quite what it was in some of the earlier CD's, but I have those CD's for that sound if I want to hear it. This brings the same excellent Blue October sound fans have come to expect. Especially fond of Say it, My Never, Kangaroo Cry, and Blue Skies, but really just buy the cd. Great band. great album

Word Well Spoken!

At 59 years old I have heard many generations of Story Tellers...Justin you top my list of the Best of the Best. Your expression of emotions, crushed feelings, lost direction, drug addition, confession and the list can continue but I feel I have painted enough of the picture. Approaching Normal is what I feel the real deal when it come to commitment to forward personal growth and what better place to display your human success than through song. Justines wish to share his heart with thousands has been Blessed by GOD to share with millions....Justine-BELIEVE! The doors of your life are just begining to open. This is your best expression of truth...keep growing my friend!

DAMN!!

I feel as if I've grown up with these guys. Every song from every album is a time machine into a piece of my life. With this album and the birth of my two lil girls, it blows my mind as I sit and listen to all my emotions play out in every lyric... Blue October is a once in a life time kind of band they dig deep into your mind with there heart stopping lyrics and the sounds of heaven play in the background...
