Healthy in Paranoid Times based on 0 ratings. 7 reviews.
In most cases, when you purchase an entire CD, you expect to not like a few of the songs the first time you listen to them, let them "grow on you." This is not the case for HIPT. The first song, boom, amazing. The second song, awesome. The third song...you get the picture. Nearly all the tracks have a lot of meaning behind them and you can tell the band put their hearts and enlightened minds into making this album. It is by far one of the best first listens I've ever had. I would not discredit the album simply because of its Enhanced status, it probably wasn't the band's choice, more like the record label. In summary, the first song is my favorite and ever since I bought it, I haven't removed it from my CD player. OLP Fans or even new fans will be extremely pleased with this album.
The album is the best yet for OLP. I own every single album and this one is the most inspired but also the most varied and innovative that I have ever heard from them. There is a good mix of high energy and slower tracks and all the tracks when you listen to the lyrics can really make you think...or you can just drive along to them and simply enjoy the music! Great job guys! It was worth ever minute of the 1165 days!
Healthy in Paranoid Times was one of the best Our Lady Peace titles to date. The follow up album to "Gravity" shows that this Canadian band has staying power, and is not just a band of the 90's. With awesome guitar riffs in "Where Are You", "Angels/Losing/Sleep", "Wipe That Smile Off Your Face". And powerful vocals, and new stylistic tunes like "Al Genina (Leave the Light On)" makes it seems like OLP is breaking away for their traditional "post grunge" atitude. They have kept with their basics and they still hold true to who they are. If you like Our Lady Peace, or are looking for something new, anyone can enjoy "Healthy In Paranoid Times"
This album blows Gravity out of the water. Comparable to Spiritual Machines, I'm sure it will help desperate people in times of need all over the world. Its doing ok in my corner. I would reccommend this album to anyone who likes Canada, Peace, and U2!
This album is long overdue. When compared to OLP’s last album Gravity, this one is a bit of a disappointment. While the music is as dynamic as ever and Raine’s voice is amazing the lyrics are much more mainstream and predictable than their past albums. It sounds a bit like OLP is trying too hard to fit in with the current music scene which is not what their fans are really looking for. With that said there quite a few songs which are worthy of being singles including “Where Are You?”, “Angels/ Losing/ Sleep”, and “Love and Trust”. I’d say the album is about on par with Clumsy in the sense that the first half of the album is amazing and the last half is just ok. If you plan on putting the album on your iPod, get it off iTunes since Dual Disks aren’t readable through iTunes.
Our Lady Peace has always been unfairly under the radar in the United States. This album absolutely proves that OLP is, and should be, relevant in America. 'Healthy' is the band's most mature release to date. I, also, feel it is their best album yet. The music is solid beginning to end and Raine's subject matter is VERY relevant. I, personally, especially liked the fact that I didn't fall in love with the album after one listen. That told me this album was deeper and more complex. It was going to take more effort to "get it", more of a challenge. NOW, I love this album. I've heard every major release this year, and most of the less major releases, and this is definitely my favorite album of the year. Notable tracks: "Angels Losing Sleep", "Will The Future Blame Us", "Where Are You", "Apology" and "World On A String"....hell all the tracks are notable. Just buy the album.
Our Lady Peace only gets better and better with each cd. They never repeat old beats or lyrics. It is all fresh and insanely awesome to listen to. If you haven't bought it yet, get off the computer and do it now.
