Way More than OK

I listened to this contrasted with "How It Feels..." and it was an odd admixture. "How It Feels..." is so great, but "OK Bear" does not compare. But ten years has past and this is a very strong solo work, in its genuine Enigk quality. It is much lighter, and you can hear songs from "The Rising Tide" and the "The Fire Theft" in it as well. As a solo artist, people may be disappointed with something like "OK Bear" because it veers away, just as "The Rising Tide" veered away. But from this lay listener it has experimentation, variety, and Enigk's lyrics and unmistakeable vocals. I do admit, however, as I have contrasted the "How It Feels..." album with "OK Bear," I wait for the next "How It Feels..." But that may be like waiting for the Beatles to get back together.

Repetitive, but Great!

Love this album. yes, it does rehash a few things he has done before, but I find this his most enjoyable album to date.

Beautiful

Not too often does an album give me chills when I listen. This one does. There are different moods on this album , yet they all come together nicely.
My 3 year old daughter was swaying to the gorgeous "Same Side Imaginary". It was quite a sight. "Make Believe" is another gentle one that mixes thoughtful lyrics with Jeremy's distinct vocal talents.
"April Storm" and "Restart" are a couple upbeat songs that are fresh and called for and will leave you in a good mood. It's obviously not Sunny Day Real Estate, but it's not supposed to be, either. It's a solo record for a reason. Just enjoy the talents of the man who has was behind SDRE and Fire Theft, and realize he still has a lot of stuff to say.
