All Music Guide - Darryl Cater
October Project's second album, like their first, is dominated by gorgeous harmonies and sweeping string arrangements. But it's also a smidge more lively than their self-titled debut -- David Sabatino's guitars are allowed let loose a little more frequently, and the comparatively energetic percussion incorporates a bit of Latin spice. The first single, "Sunday Morning Yellow Sky," combines a typically intense, soaring chorus with an unusually lighthearted jam featuring harmonica and funky guitar riffs. But the meat and potatoes of October Project are still the achingly poignant melodies, tunes so emotionally stoked one can't help but wish to hear them more clearly, or feel...

But the meat and potatoes of October Project are still the achingly poignant melodies, tunes so emotionally stoked one can't help but wish to hear them more clearly, or feel them more fully. That can be a bit exhausting after repeated listens, and the keyboard-heavy arrangements are occasionally overwrought, but in proper doses there is no catharsis like October Project. The band broke up after touring in support of this album. Perhaps the next project for tunesmith Emil Adler and his lyricist/playwright wife, Julie Flanders, should involve musical theater. These larger-than-life ballads and the big voice of lead singer Mary Fahl would suit the stage well, and would be considerably more compelling than much of the stuff on Broadway.

    Music to lift your soul...

    My wife and I were on the way to the hospital for the first ultrascan of our first child, who is now 9 and the most beautiful boy ever created, when we heard Sunday Morning, Yellow Sky on the radio. The words touched our hearts, especially mine, for at 44 I had long heard the sound of a baby in crying in the arms of someone I imagined but could never find. The music and lyrics of October Project captured those emotions. We still listen to every song they recorded and many bring tears to our eyes. If you love, if you have found a love worthy of falling from grace for as October Project so beautifully describes in Adam and Eve then you will love this music and be moved by the lyrics. It is the greatest tragedy that this group broke up. Perhaps one day, when they all have many more emotions and experiences recorded in their hearts they will join together and give us another look at life from a window no one else has access to.
