Reseña de álbum

To say the six years between 2006's Welcome to the Drama Club and 2012's Invisible Stars were tough for Everclear is something of an understatement. Only one of the musicians who appeared on Drama Club remains — that would be guitarist/singer Art Alexakis, who already was leading a rejiggered lineup in 2006 and now has a completely different crew on Invisible Stars. This is roughly the same group that appeared on Everclear's pair of 2011 releases of re-recorded hits for budget-line Cleopatra, a sure sign a group has skidded into a rough patch, and if they're not explicitly re-recording songs on Invisible Stars, they're certainly eager to evoke memories of the past by reworking hooks from "Everything to Everyone," "I Will Buy You a New Life," and "Wonderful." Of course, Alexakis has never hidden how he works with a limited palette — he may have expanded sonic horizons on the two-part Songs from an American Movie back in 2000 but he retained allegiance to the same three chords and topics that brought him fame on Sparkle and Fade and So Much for the Afterglow — so this isn't necessarily a fair criticism to level at this late date. What does count is that the hunger to return to the spotlight results in a looser, livelier record than Welcome to the Drama Club; he's so desperate for somebody to pay attention that his hooks are harder, bolder than before and the band rocks, albeit in the coolly restrained manner of seasoned hired hands. Whether this nostalgia — so calculated that the prom queen of "Falling in a Good Way" pointedly enters high school in 1995, the year Everclear had their first big hit, "Santa Monica" (and this album's "Santa Ana Wind" certainly brings to mind that tune as well) — has an audience in 2012 is almost beside the point; after many years in the wilderness, Alexakis has once again found the sound of Everclear on Invisible Stars.

A Step in the Right Direction

When I got the album I immediately stopped what I was doing, put on my Bose Quiet Comfort headphones, blocked out the world, and listened to the album 3 times in a row. I was anxious to see what my childhood favorite band had produced. After listening to the album I came to this conclusion: If you go into this album expecting it to sound like Colorfinger(Art's first band), World of Noise, Sparkle and Fade, or So Much for the Afterglow, you will be disappointed. The Art that wrote this album is 20+ years sober, married 4 times, has kids, and is much older. The album lacks the grit that was appealing about the late 80's early 90's albums. This does not mean the album is bad, just a different kind of Everclear. There are no songs that sound like "13 Years", "The Color Pit", "Nervous and Weird", "Fire Maple Song", or "Heroin Girl". I miss the songs that are about being newly sober and the struggle of maintaining relationships that were based around drug addiction. The biggest thing this album lacks is an ability to be timeless. I can put in my Colorfinger CD at any point in my life and be able to relate to it and feel the emotion that was put into the album. Invisible Stars does not have a timeless feel to it. This album is certainly the best work Art has done in a long time, but with that said there is still room to improve. This album isn't punk/ hard rock. It is more of a pop rock album. In my opinion, Art needs to listen to some X and remember the sounds that shaped his music early in his career. He needs to strip away the key boards and synthesizers and play the pure gritty sounds he use to. He needs to find the infusion of punk and country he used to have mastered unlike any other artist out there. Once he does this he will have that one of a kind sound that made him such a success. With so many bands out there, it is easy to be forgotten when you sound like everyone else.

Well Well Well

It appears as though ive won the race.......its nice to have new songs to listen to, been a long time. I hear a lot of the old songs in here for sure, which i guess can be good or bad depending on what you were hoping for, but its a solid effort nonetheless.

Great job Art!

I've always been an Everclear fan, but being 16, I don't really remember them releasing a new album. So I was thrilled when I read about Invisible Stars, and they didn't disappoint! Great sound throughout the entire album. Cheery, upbeat music with the somewhat dark and very meaningful lyrics we've all loved over the years.

Though Everclear's Northwestern grunge-punk style was hardly revolutionary when the band rose to popularity in 1995, the trio's hook-ridden songs and Art Alexakis' "us against them" lyrics were taken to heart by bored Gen-X teens. Everclear's sound reflected the rock, post-punk, and singer/songwriter influences of frontman Alexakis, including acts like X, the Replacements, the Pixies, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and...
