Album Review

October Project's second album, like their first, is dominated by gorgeous harmonies and sweeping string arrangements. But it's also a smidge more lively than their self-titled debut — David Sabatino's guitars are allowed let loose a little more frequently, and the comparatively energetic percussion incorporates a bit of Latin spice. The first single, "Sunday Morning Yellow Sky," combines a typically intense, soaring chorus with an unusually lighthearted jam featuring harmonica and funky guitar riffs. But the meat and potatoes of October Project are still the achingly poignant melodies, tunes so emotionally stoked one can't help but wish to hear them more clearly, or feel them more fully. That can be a bit exhausting after repeated listens, and the keyboard-heavy arrangements are occasionally overwrought, but in proper doses there is no catharsis like October Project. The band broke up after touring in support of this album. Perhaps the next project for tunesmith Emil Adler and his lyricist/playwright wife, Julie Flanders, should involve musical theater. These larger-than-life ballads (and the big voice of lead singer Mary Fahl) would suit the stage well, and would be considerably more compelling than much of the stuff on Broadway.

Customer Reviews

You Will Fall Farther In

October Project's sophomore album, Falling Farther in, will have you falling farther into their perfectly-woven songs. With the same focus on vocal harmonizing and inspired lyrics, October Project continues the legacy that they started with their debut album. Yet again, these songs will lead you to contemplate joy and sadness, inner darkness and personal optimism, and nearly any other emotional juxtaposition. You will find yourself needing another listen just to digest the intricacies of the work. As with all of October Project's work, Falling Farther In will become a standard of your music collection.

Awesome.

I have loved this group from the beginning. I saw them in Portsmouth, NH and it was by far the BEST concert experience I have ever had. My husband and I listen to their first two albums regularly. It is so sad it had to end.

Another good CD

Not as good as the first CD but there are some great songs on this CD. How I wish there was a 3rd CD coming out.

Biography

Formed: 1989

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '90s, '00s

In their brief, three-year career, October Project released two albums stuffed to the seams with soaring, sweeping, aching melodies. Their intense, plaintive pop songs are tinged with the influence of both the alternative pop and new age movements of the 1990s, but they seem to have more in common with Broadway musicals than with any other pop musicians (although the band has admitted a similarity to early Jefferson Airplane recordings). Both of the latter comparisons are in large measure due to...
