Customer Reviews

Almost beyond description, a serious MIO

In April 2005, rock band Collective Soul performed two concerts featuring the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra. Finally, these concerts have been released on DVD or two-disc set. Many rock bands who have tried concert collaborations with orchestras have failed miserably, but this album is very different. “Home” is a breathtaking album that features some of Collective Soul’s best work, complimented by amazing orchestral arrangement. One of the things that has always impressed me about Collective Soul is their ability to create beautiful, emotional ballads as well as straightforward, hard rockers, and yet neither style lacks anything. Sometimes they combine the two styles, and despite what might be the norm, this almost always seems to work. The expressive nature of Collective Soul’s music is highlighted very well by the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra’s professional sound. The first time I heard this album, I was absolutely blown away by the sheer power of it all. The first song I listened to was one of their bigger hits, December. December is a mid-tempo rock song that features brilliant guitar work and powerful vocals. It was always a first-rate song, but this version has a musical depth that the original never seemed to have. It is true that the vocals don’t sound the same, but that happens with so many concert recordings. December alone could be well worth buying the disc, but there are many more great songs. Compliment, the next track on the album, is an expressive rock ballad that later combines with hard rock. It starts out with a graceful orchestral movement, followed by a guitar line that can only really be compared to The Who. The vocals that then enter send chills down the spine. Then the guitar becomes heavier, and though it begins to get a hard rock feel, it still seems like a ballad. This is a beautiful song that seems to get the atmosphere of the entire album. Starting with heavy drums and Aerosmith-like guitar is Precious Declaration. This is definite Collective Soul hard rock, and the burning guitar is complimented quite well by searing orchestral work. While it is clearly not the best song on the album, it is a good song, even for those who don’t like hard rock. Three tracks later is another one of Collective Soul’s big hits, a ballad called The World I Know. The music is calm, sounding somewhat resigned, and it has a sort of buzzing feel, with the guitar occasionally ringing throughout. The lyrics are sad, but not depressing. I was never really affected by the original cut, but the live version with the orchestra is so much more powerful, I am almost brought to tears when I hear it. Starting out the second disc is the emotional Crown. The music in this song is almost entirely orchestral. It is also entirely beautiful. The vocals are sad and compelling, and the orchestra is strong and dynamic throughout. This is a hauntingly lovely and passionate piece, and a wonderful opener to disc two. One of their more recent hits, Better Now, is also featured on this album. The guitar seems to have some more bite, and the orchestra makes it feel fresher. However, I think this version leaves out some of the many enjoyable things about the original, and it falls somewhat short. In addition, the audience sings “the world’s done shakin’ me down” for too long, and it gets boring. The next track is Satellite, a song written by the lead singer for his three-year-old son. It has a very calming and chill feel to it, almost like a lullaby. In the middle of the song, there is a somewhat spacey and warbling guitar solo. The lyrics are comforting and loving, talking about how he will watch over and protect his son. It is very pleasant and quite relaxing. The last song (excluding the bonus track) is perhaps their most popular song, Shine. The highlight of this piece has always been the unforgettable guitar riffs, and when the orchestra comes in on this version, they are just etched into the mind. This is the song that first made me love music, and this live cut makes it one of the most wonderful songs I know. Of course, there were other great tracks that I did not talk about, such as the ballads Needs, Run, and How Do You Love; Gel, widely praised as their best song; and the bonus studio track, Burn. However, it is impossible to say all that there is to say about this album, so I’ll just say this: “Home” is worth every penny at any price.

Classic Collective Soul

This is classic Collective Soul. If you haven't had the chance to catch them live I reccomend this CD. They have always had an energy that was palpable, and they still do. I often stay away from live CD's if for no other reason than the quality of the recordings, this CD doesn't have that problem.

Breathtaking...

The songs were all perfect the way they were album by album, but the orchestra provides that hanuting sound that is so breathtaking. I saw the live concert on DirecTV's Freeview last month...and couldn't wait to get my hands on what would surely be a wide-release of a DVD and CD. I was also lucky enough to be one of about 400 people who saw them at the Roxy in Los Angeles the week before this release...Now I have the download from iTunes and it satisfies my recent Collective Soul binge. Highly recommended for anyone who is a fan...or anyone who isn't...as you surely will become one.

Biography

Formed: 1992 in Stockbridge, GA

Genre: Rock

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

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.
