Healthy in Paranoid Times [DualDisc]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
In the liners for Healthy in Paranoid Times, Our Lady Peace's first studio album in three years, there's a photo of a wall where facts are scrawled. "Within these 1165 days..." it says, referring to the lengthy time it took to record the album, "11 thousand dollars was spent on food for the band." "2000 hours were spent both discussing and playing music." But then the tone changes. "30 active wars were fought across the globe," "54 million people died from extreme poverty." The list goes on, itemizing everything from how many hours OLP spent on airplanes to the number of North American deaths from cancer. Are we supposed to see the futility of rock & roll in the face ...

"Within these 1165 days..." it says, referring to the lengthy time it took to record the album, "11 thousand dollars was spent on food for the band." "2000 hours were spent both discussing and playing music." But then the tone changes. "30 active wars were fought across the globe," "54 million people died from extreme poverty." The list goes on, itemizing everything from how many hours OLP spent on airplanes to the number of North American deaths from cancer. Are we supposed to see the futility of rock & roll in the face of international strife and hunger? That's certainly an honorable notion, but it seems sort of ham-fisted, too, mostly because no one made Our Lady Peace take that long to record their album. But it also has very little to do with the music on Healthy in Paranoid Times. Well, in "Wipe That Smile Off Your Face," Raine Maida does use metaphors of wars and bombs to describe a failing relationship, so maybe he's aiming for some connectivity between the music and those suffering phrases on the wall. Healthy is also a much moodier album than 2002's Gravity. The highlights of that record were the Goo Goo Dolls-ish singles "Somewhere Out There" and "Innocent." Here songs have a tendency to drag on -- opener "Angels/Losing/Sleep" plods along for nearly five minutes, and even the single "Where Are You" -- which otherwise has a peppy guitar line comparable to the Killers -- overstays its welcome with an extended "This could be the best day of your life" singalong. But the biggest problem with Healthy in Paranoid Times, besides its inflated thematic framework, is its lack of distinction. Our Lady Peace has proven how good they are at approximating U2's epic scope with modern rock atmospherics. So why did it take them over a 1000 days to do that again? [The album was also issued in a DualDisc format with the entire album in PCM stereo and a documentary about its creation.]

    BUY THIS ALBUM

    I am no music critic, but I am a music fan, so I will keep this short and sweet! With each album Our Lady Peace creates, the band continues to outdo themselves. "Healthy in Paranoid Times" is no exception, and includes, quite possibly their best song ever, "Apology." Raine's voice has never sounded better and the band has never sounded tighter. Other stand out songs include "Angels/Losing/ Sleep," "Picture," and "Boy." Additionally, "Wipe That Smile Off Your Face" is a song full of emotion, directed at George W. Bush. Lastly, "Al Genina (Leave The Light On)" tells the story of Raine Maida's trip to the Darfur region of Sudan and illustrates his concern for other troubling world issues. "Healthy in Paranoid Times" was well worth the wait. You owe it to yourself to purchase this album.

    Very cool

    Alright, this album, has amazed me in two ways. One, it's content was great. The songs have a lot more depth as compared to their last album "Gravity" which was the most poppy radio collection by them. If you enjoy the goo goo Dolls, then "Gravity" should be yours as well. Now, the second thing that amazed me was the negative reactions to the cd from the critics. "Healthy in Paranoid Times" dragged? Well, if you're used to the 2 minute something rap/pop songs that are in full circulation on the radios...then yes, a 5 minute song can drag. This album is one of the greatest collections that Our Lady Peace has created. A definate "get it" to complete your OLP collection. Also a great OLP Cd to start from if you're a new fan.

    these are the songs they picked?

    i'm a die hard olp fan but even i've got to say that this is a sub par cd. even naveed had at least one good song going for it. it just seems to drone on and on, the songs sounding the same. considering how many songs they say they wrote for this cd they really should have taken more time choosing the right ones.
