Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
On their appropriately titled fifth effort, this sneakily versatile Southern-fried combo strike a good balance between playing to their strengths and spreading their wings. As ever, the quintet waste little time on subtle gestures, preferring to pound out arena-ready riffs that give frontman Ed Roland a movie-screen sized canvas to paint with his alternately dramatic and enigmatic lyrical forays. The formula works out well on songs such as "Why Part 2," which has a hint of late-period Who running through its veins. But Collective Soul don't simply apply one formula to every song on the disc. When they stretch out -- as they do on the gently rolling "10 Years Later" and...

When they stretch out -- as they do on the gently rolling "10 Years Later" and "Turn Around," a U2-flavored nugget punctuated by some surprisingly dissonant guitar figures -- the band stand well apart from the rock-by-numbers company they're often lumped in with. Not all of the exploring lands Roland and company in territory worth exploring: The oddly mannered synth-pop digression "Over Tokyo" wouldn't have made it past Yaz's editing room in 1982, while the effects-laden "Happiness" can't muster the churlishness Roland seems to be striving for. Then again, it's nice to see a band that cares enough to color out of the lines now and then -- without losing sight of their boundaries altogether.

    Whoever thought of the title needs to rethink his choice

    It's a great thing to have prolific bands like Collective Soul around in an age where people prefer to take years in the studio crafting an album. But sometimes being prolific can drain a band of their creativity, and with BLENDER, perhaps Collective Soul need not have rushed to keep their name alive in the marketplace. The 40-minute length of BLENDER, which while it's quite welcome, only further hints at this album's hurried preparation. Some songs are great like ''Perfect Day'' with Elton John (it's been a while since we had some new material from him), but the rest is pretty underdeveloped. Just as you get into one song, it's all over in only 3 minutes. At least in the era during which 3-minute songs were a requirement, they were much better conceived. BLENDER doesn't exactly say that Collective Soul is running out of ideas, just that perhaps they're thinking too fast before they think something is finished. Next time out, Collective Soul should take more than just 18 months in between albums to come back with a new album...and with a title that's a bit more appropriate.

    Catchy and Contagious

    Collective Soul's 5th release is one that has the listener alternating between wanting to blast the speakers, or dancing. Dancing? From a rock group? Well, Collective Soul may have explored every genre on this album from catchy tunes like ''Vent'' and ''Why pt 2'' to the completely contagious ''Skin''. There are no power ballads here, though 10 yrs Later and Turn Around are slower tempo songs, beautiful and melodic. Overall it is a wonderful example of Collective Soul's diversity in many areas. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to Rock, Pop, and many types of music fans.
