Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Candlebox rode the alternative bandwagon to the top of the charts with their self-titled debut album. Taking the heaviest moments of Soundgarden and Alice in Chains and adding both the confinements of a pop song and the attitude of album rock, Candlebox managed to sell over two million copies of their first album. Nothing on Candlebox is particularly catchy -- the singles "You" and "Far Behind" are the closest they come to memorable melodies -- but there is enough sheer riff power to satisfy fans of their singles.

    A great album!

    I love this album, you get hooked. The songs like ''you'' and ''cover me'' get stuck in your head they are songs that you will never forget. The beats are great and I think Candlebox should go down in history with this cd because of the genius they must have to write those lyrics and that music. This is really a cd you need to add to your collection. They add thereown zest to rock.It is unlike anything you have ever heard before, this debut album will have you wanting more. This cd is good for all kinds of people.

    ''Candlebox'' is an absolutely amazing album

    Candlebox's self-titled debut album is really great. A few listens and you'll be hooked - but there are 2 catches: one, you have to have an open mind about what rock music can and should be; and two, you have to be at least mildly intrigued by and interested in blues rock. Bcuz that's what Candlebox is, essentially. They're a kind of modern blues-rock, mixed with hard rock. Forget people who say that Candlebox is ''grunge'' - they really aren't. The only reason they're labeled as such is bcuz they were based outta Seattle (although I don't think any of the 4 original members were even initially from there). But, if you listen to any of their 3 albums, you'll realize that Candlebox is nothing like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, A-in-C, or any other rock group smacked with the grunge label. No, Candlebox is very different, very unique, and very good! Come on, try some of their songs. After you get used to their style, you'll definitely fall in love with (or at least be impressed by) such gems as ''You'', ''Far Behind'', ''Rain'', ''Cover Me'', and ''He Calls Home'', to name a few. And if you let it, Kevin Martin's voice will send pleasant chills up and down your spine! :) So onward, my rock music friends and fans: try Candlebox. And if you find you like them, by all means go on to ''Lucy'' and ''Happy Pills''. But before you do so, read my other reviews for tips! ;) <br> (By the way, if you're curious, the only reason why this album doesn't get 5 stars is bcuz - in my humble opinion - ''Happy Pills'' is a better album and thus much more worthy of the complete honor.)
