Customer Reviews


If you own Afterwords, just buy the new songs seperately. If you don't own the original Afterwords, now is a good time to buy this CD.

Re-issue? Booo Collective Soul!!!!

While I enjoyed the first release of this album when it was released exclusively to iTunes and Target back in summer of '07, it's frustrating to see it re-issued now with three new songs added. Honestly, "Give" is a great track that has everything a Collective Soul fan will love. It's upbeat with mellow lyrics that Ed sings into the microphone like he's soothing us to sleep. The first eleven tracks have been reviewed before by many others. If you're just discovering "Afterwords" now rather than when it came out, then boo to you too. You shouldn't even buy this album. Go listen to your Britney Spears and leave the real music to us true Collective Soul fans.

The Best In Years

Been a fan of CS since they first hit the scene with Shine on Hints, Allegations, and have purchased each album since. This is by far one of their best efforts. It is easily their best since Dosage. They drop much of the poppy sound of the previous two albums and return to more of an alternative rock sound. And it is highly welcome. Lyrics are top notch, which Ed Roland doesn't receive enough credit for- basically every CS album is lyrically brilliant. But this one shines in the feeling it generates. It's a joyful vibe without cheesiness. And every song here is enjoyable. Nine of the eleven (I purchased the CD, so I haven't digested the additional 3) are either 4 or 5 stars. Rare. Purchase it. There will be no regrets.

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.
