the Long Tail

Adventures in the Low End of the Demand Curve

Monday, October 25, 2004


Part of the fun of keeping this blog active is finding the music in my collection that is both a little on the obscure side, but also finding a CD that has a story behind the original acquisition. Whether its a story of where I found it, who I met in the process, or just the impact that it had on me, a little bit of drama makes the album memorable.

This album, however, has no drama surrounding it. I was simply browsing the music racks at Best Buy, and this happened to catch my eye. The song titles intrigued me, and the price was right. I didn't care for it at first (a common theme throughout this series) but it didn't repulse me, so it had a chance to grow on me.

As far as the songs that intrigued me, including "The World Has Come Between Us," "I Will Be Something," "I Know Where You Are," and "the Scientist's Canvas." They all contain a certain amount of teenage and adult angst that most can relate to, acknowledging the difficulties of relationships, maintaining a postive outlook in today's world when others try to bring you down, and what happens when people part unexpectedly. They have a sound that rests somewhere between Pearl Jam and Linkin Park, but certainly distinctive and worth a listen. If you feel like giving it a try, I recommend it. Let's it's post-grunge sounds give you a kindred spirit, if only for an hour.
