Album Review

Fourteen years after their first self-titled album, Collective Soul deliver another in 2009 and it's fair to say that the album is a bit of a reintroduction, not a reinvention. It's also fair to ask who Collective Soul is reintroducing themselves to, and the answer is pretty simple: after spending the better part of the decade in the indie leagues, the band is returning to the majors with 2009's Collective Soul, making a pitch at reconnecting with the wide mainstream audience they had a decade ago. The group doesn't ignore what it's done over the last ten years — there's a pronounced Bowie influence that still lingers — first aired on the glam-tastic Youth — especially on "Fuzzy," but this is high-gloss, high-octane arena rock, filled with big riffs and hooks on both the rockers and power ballads. Collective Soul doesn't make an attempt to modernize their sound (although the verse of "Understanding" has an unmistakable phrase borrowed from Jack White) choosing instead to refine their best techniques, so this winds up being a very big, very hooky modern rock record that might not find the audience it once did but only because of the shifting landscape of modern rock. As a record, this is as strong as anything Collective Soul have ever done.

Customer Reviews

Not the 1st self-titled

The above iTunes review of the album is incorrect. That is in reference to the 1st self-titled. This one is brand new. For what it is worth, they are still writing as enjoyable music as they were then. A wonderful album.

Catchy as ever

You either love them or hate them, but like wine, some things just get better with age. Even though their time has long been over, Collective Soul still show that the 90s are still not dead. I really believe that this could have gone Platinum if it was 1995, cause most of the songs here are really really catchy. After a spin, you'll have the "wooo wooo wooo" stuck in your head all day. And for that I can't ignore this album. The 90s may be over, but Collective Soul can still rock like it is.

Biased review

5 stars from a long time fan. I pretty much enjoy all their albums, some more than others. This album has a "happy to be alive" feeling. if you are in a bad mood when starting this record, it will change by the end. Listen to it yourself and maybe you will agree. their music also makes me appreciate why I like listening to music in the first place. I don't ever feel bad deciding to buy an album from them.


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.
